If you were to ask Abby Jeanne what the foundation of her musical existence is, it’s almost certain she would say “DIY.” Leaving her Milwaukee home as a teenager, Jeanne busked her way first around the states, then other corners of the globe, at one point spending over a year living in a mini-van and only answering to her own call. Since then, she’s found herself sharing bills with No Name, Ishadarr, and even David Bowie’s band on several midwest dates of the Celebrate tour just last year. Her latest record, Music Box Dancer, exemplifies in sound and spirit what she describes in diction: rock n’ roll with a dreamers soul. She stopped by our Studio 1A to chat about her life, her experiences in Austin, and play some killer tunes too.
