Biography

There is nothing obvious about jAb ( mainly duo Jody Anker and Nakia Lemieux). With hard driving guitar riffs and emotional vocals these two get your attention every time. Once a solo flyer, main songwriter Jody Anker is trying on various creative ideas, while guarding closely her own style that flirts with country, jazz, and rock. You will find harmonies remeniscent of the middle east combined with a native style of chanting. The "jAb" cross borders and set no boundaries in there deliverance, bringing to the surface the darker lingerings of our thoughts and shedding a bit o LIGHT!
jAb is literally Nakia Lemieux, local laurentiens girl of Quebec, with a powerful voice, tight percussive rythmns and DYNAMIC energy, AND Jody Anker once a North Western Gal (BC and NWT), who now hangs her spurs up around the Montreal/ laurentiens area of Quebec. The solid duo periodically play with other talented musicians; Niko Motzeri 'Israel', who plays mainly drums, is a young veteran to the world of picking up a variety of other instruments. He has been known to put his Jimbe aside to play a special blend of Jody's "country tune" with a 'Bouzouki' in hand! There's songs of love, temptations, greed, loss, and hope all in one nights flow of a jAb SHOW! "It's about being generous with what we have to share, describing our lives as creatively as possible"..Anker says, "It's like water,...out of control and flowing fast; lots of energy, lots of feeling. That's what our music is all about."

Lyrics

Late Nite Lunatic

Written By: Jody Anker

Lover lying on the couch with his feet hanging out
Four hours past the bed, still he don`t wanna come down
What is it that's in his head, that's left his feet full of lead
Blocked, cramped, I feel the strain, the pain, all over again...

Emotional game, don't stop, won't talk
Awake with this pen, wondering about my man
If he's allright up there on the couch
In his heart and in his head
dat dah da dat dah
(modulate UP one tone)
dat dah da dat dah da dat dah da dah

Your a grown up girl with a grown up life
Got it all laid straight, all the way from Yellowknife
Now your man is working and earning all the doe
While your day dreaming of Brazil, with two kids at home...

(modulate back down 3 frets)
Dat dah da dat da dahDat dah da dat dah Dahdat dah da dat dat

Heck maybe it's nothing , just hanging out
Taking a cat nap, space flight...
Is that all that's up with my man
(body's seperating, brain is contemplating, condemating...dat dah da dat dah
da dat dah da dah....)

(modulate up 2 tones)
sung with soul style
Lover man works around his store
While lady luck tries on her french a little more
Make-up, make love, make music, make sup'
Spend Nuttin' stop the fight, hang on
Pretend I'm Mary Juan...ahhh Mary Juan ahh haaah.(modulate down a tone 1 1/2)

Body's seperating, brain is contemplating, soul is levitating,
Let's do that meditating....dat dah da dat dah da dat dah da dahhhh ....
Is that all thats up with my man, Meditating with his feet hangin out!
that's all...that`s all
THAT`S ALL!

Le Monde Attend

Written By: Jody Anker

Le monde entier questionne et demande
Tout le monde en veut, sa partir
Tout le monde attend assit
Montre moi ce que tu connais

Allo, il ya quelqu'un
Que ton ame coule pour me nourir

Oublies tes prieres pas ce-que
Je suis trop naive pour les accorder
Leur puissance; Laisser passer le drame
Lacher la defense; Regagne ton innocence

Et (viens jouer avec moi) x 4
La porte est la, Qu'est-ce que tu vois?

Felumptious, festering felines
Cataputing crazy canines
Indecisive dignity
Trudging through the tundra
In their plumskin petticoats
Penatrating privates
Everywhere that Eden stood
Simultaneously slipping,
Simultaneously, Simultaneously
Slipping through conciousness
Cooling me back ah...Cooling me back Agai uh ai uh ai ainnnnn

Le monde entier questionne et demande
Tout le monde en veut, sa partir
Tout le monde attend assit
Montre moi ce que tu connais

Allo, il ya quelqu'un
Que ton ame coule pour me nourir

Oublies tes prieres pas ce-que
Je suis trop naive pour les accorder
Leur puissance; Laisser passer le drame
Lacher la defense; Regagne ton innocence

Et viens jouer avec moi...
