Biography


Jeans Boots is imagined, a lost VHS recording of The Wedge featuring a slacker Stevie Nicks dosing with the Velvet Underground.

The music comes from a childhood listening to AM Radio, a pick-up truck with one Neil Young cassette tape in it and falling in love with Eric's Trip.

Jeans Boots has appeared at the BreakOut West, JunoFest NXNE, Sled Island, Ness Creek and the Gateway Festivals and has supported a number of great artists at home and while touring Canada, including Buffy Sainte-Marie Elliott Brood, Forest City Lovers, Library Voices, Tasseomancy, Timber Timbre, Shotgun Jimmie and Cannon Bros.

The group features members of Saskatoon collective Slow Down, Molasses, which has toured the UK (End of the Road Festival, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City) and Canada (NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Sled Island, Regina Folk Festival and Ness Creek.)

Jeans Boots has self-released three EPs, a split 7'' with London band So Young and is working on a collaboration with Saskatoon hip-hop producer Factor.

Recent performances include The University of Saskatchewan's TedX event and a live for broadcast taping of CBC Radio's On a Cold Road.

“Jeanette Stewart, who is the group's main brain, does have an acoustic side, but this show was unadulterated electricity in the vein of Sonic Youth and Julie Doiron's louder moments,” - These boots were made for rockin', National Capital Rock, April 16, 2011

"(Jeans Boots') sound could be described as a combination of Best Coast and Eric’s Trip, gritty guitars and playful, occasionally cooing vocals that shove classic pop-rock arrangements ahead full-throttle" - www.soundsalvationarmy.com

Lyrics

moonsocket

Written By: jeanette stewart


you wore my exile
in the corner of your smile
and i saw forever
in your red sweater

we walked over the bridges
and out of the night
the feathers on the birds
reflecting the uv light

i made it into something
made it into something
made it into something so big and wild and wonderful/oh oh

i told you i loved you
last night at the show
i spilled it in red wine
all over the floor

but your smile didn't waver
and your eyes didn't fall
because to you it wasn't anything
wasn't anything at all

i made it into something
made it into something
made it into something oh so big and
wild and wonderful
oh oh/oh oh

money

Written By: Jeanette Stewart


they ask me to sing sweetly/
don't pay me any money
they ask me to sing sweetly/
don't pay me any money

so i'm going to make/ make it rain
i'm going to make/ make it rain
let it all come down/ let it all come down

you only like me when i'm sleeping
or when i'm slightly stoned
you only like me when i'm sleeping
don't wanna take me home

it is the force of attraction
it is the type of distraction
it is the way i feel when we hang around

and you aren't pretty

you ask me to leave town/don't have any money
you ask me to leave town/don't have any money
so i'm going to run run run/get away
so i'm going to run/ make it pay

let it all come down/ let it all come down

you aren't pretty
you've just got light in your eyes
you aren't pretty
you've just got light in your eyes

they are shining like the sun
who is lying to the moon
they are shining like the sun
who is lying to the moon

it is the force of attraction
it is the type of distraction
it is the way i feel when we hang around.

they ask me to sing sweetly/
don't pay me any money
they ask me to sing sweetly/
don't pay me any money
