Jazmarae Beebe and Richard Scott with the Crescent City Swingers on WWL Channel 4 News: Morning Show, New Orleans.
It doesn’t sound like anything else that’s come out of the Seattle pop scene lately. It’s not stripped-down folk, and it’s not hand-clapping tent-revival indie Americana.The sound she turned to is closer to the stylistic neighborhood of Pickwick’s neo-soul, funk thing or maybe to the increasingly popular soul sound of Allen Stone. But it has a smoky element that neither of those acts does.
Beebe’s sound is jazzy, smoky, soulful, groovy, and is marked by some of the most infectious hooks I’d hear the entire week end... it was only when I saw her perform that I realized, Oh, SHE’S the one I’ve been hearing about!
