The best kept secret in music


"Dallas Morning News uly 5 2002"

Neo-soul, folk, traditional blues - not exactly. It's
hard to define the Jevette Band using these terms.
Singer-songwriter Sonya Jevette fronts the band, which
blends folk, blues, funk and R&B. Her rich voice is
similar to jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves or neo-soul
singer Jill Scott, with a smooth and bold flow that
engages the senses. Ms. Jevette's slice-of-life lyrics
sometimes are tinged with irony, sometimes are personal
and self- reflective. She's easygoing onstage and
establishes synergy with her avid local following. The
band has been together for about two years and is
anchored by bass, rhythm guitar, drums and sax.
Recently, the group has performed at local festivals
and has gigged at Deep Ellum spots like Fat Ted's. If
you appreciate music that is steeped in both
contemporary and vintage grooves, check it out.

Jevette’s Bio
The words sultry, cool, and eccentric best describe the singer, songwriter, and musician Jevette. She was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and graduated from North Mesquite High School. Jevette grew up singing to the great R&B tunes that dominated the airwaves in the seventies. As a teen she honed her vocal talent through the church choir.
Winning a talent contest at the age of seventeen was the beginning of Jevette’s journey. From there, she went on to win dozens of competitions. These successes translated into media attention from radio & newspaper with appearances at over one hundred festivals.
Jevette combines her rich, passionate voice and her gut-wrenching lyrics with classical, latin and jazz style guitar. Jevette's configuration produces a style that can only be described as unique.
She was nominated in the Dallas Observer 2002 Music Awards along side Erica Badu and N’Dambi. Jevette has played in venues such as Uncle Calvin, Club DaDa, Dallas Hard Rock Cafe, Deep Ellum Live, Gypsy Tea Room, and Ft. Worth's Caravan of Dreams.
Jevette has a passion for the business side of the music industry and has established her own Indie label, Sound Byte Productions Inc. (S.B.P.) since 1999 S.B.P. has sold over 800 copies of Jevette’s first CD "Everything Begins with One".
