Biography

After previous ventures in projects as diverse as the band itself, JJ Magazine has landed a sound both strikingly unique and warmly familiar. Their influences come from stylistic approaches rather than any one particular band. “No one can seem to pigeon hole us,” explains drummer Glen McNell. “I’ve heard everything from Blondie to Stereolab to Pulp, and even The Velvet Underground.” Roxanne Starnik’s lilting melodies weave their way through the rich harmonic tapestry laid out by guitarists Paul Sydorenko and Zach Starnik (yes, he’s Roxanne’s brother.) Bassist Michael Ocampo pins down the beat and sculpts the sound with catchy hooks and rhythms. Often short, but always sweet, JJ Magazine’s tunes offer a wide range of textures and emotions.
