Biography

Embraced by lo-fi tweakers, punk-rock pranksters and pop tarts all at once, Bad Flirt has proven good songs can traverse genre borderlines.

Founded in 2001 as a solo acoustic project, Jasamine White-Gluz used her experiences as a journalist and musician in the punk music scenes of Montreal to help define her sound.

Jasamine took a punk-rock DIY attitude and indie-pop sensibility to put together Songs for Traffic
–a 3-song demo that included the hugely popular track, ‘My Expensive Hobby’. The demo garnered immediate attention from the underground music scenes.

Soon afterwards Bad Flirt released the 7-song EP, The August Issues, and completed a year of constant touring, travelling by Greyhound and playing solo shows up and down the East Coast.

During this time, live shows ranged from the intense to the insane, with Bad Flirt including a regular Twister game tournament in every set.

Now recording and performing as a 4 piece electric band, Bad Flirt retains its fervent punk spirit and bridges it, with smart-pop. Mixing all the fuzz of The Jesus and Mary Chain, the melodies of Jimmy Eat World, and the sugariness of Juliana Hatfield, Bad Flirt is the soundtrack to the broken hearted and the heartbreakers everywhere.

Bad Flirt's new album, '6 Ways To Break Your Heart' has been all over Canadian College radio charts, appearing as the only Independent act to crack Earshot Online's list of top 50 records this July. From Victoria to Halifax, college radio has been a major supporter of the album.
