"L.A. Record Interview"

Jonneine Zapata has a stare that makes men cower and weep. She is the closest thing to Jim Morrison in the Silverlake scene and her live show is mesmerizing. She will be holding residence at Silverlake Lounge on Mondays in October and she has just finished her first national tour (opening for Soulsavers) in support of her debut Cast The Demons Out.

"Buzzbands L.A. Interview"

Her arrival was announced by her debut, “Cast the Demons Out,” one of the most compelling releases to come down L.A.’s musical freeways in recent months. It simmers in places and boils in others, roiling in the same dark undercurrents explored by the likes of Johnette Napolitano and PJ Harvey. - http://buzzbands.la/


"The Dumbing Of America Interview"

To listen to Jonneine Zapata’s new record, ‘Cast The Demons Out’ is to listen to a record with an intensity I haven’t heard since Springsteen’s Nebraska. To see her live is to feel you heart and lungs filled with the smoky intensity of a performer who’s passion knows no boundaries. - http://thedumbingofamerica.net/


"L.A. Weekly Review"

The Highland Park chanteuse Jonneine Zapata is often at her most mesmerizing on such glacially paced, funereal ballads as “No Big Deal” and “Bandit,” from her 2009 album, Cast the Demons Out. She channels her considerably fiery intensity into low-simmering, ominously building rockers like “Burn” and “Worry,” before she finally blows up on the defiantly romantic/enigmatic anthem “Cowboy.”

Bio

Jonneine Zapata is not one to give much biographical information. Whether this is out of an honest humility or the desire to shroud her in mystery, it has not prevented her from gaining notoriety. Perhaps it was that very mystique that landed her the opening slot for the Raconteurs last year.

Probably the most striking thing about Jonneine Zapata and her music, other than that of her voice itself, is the honesty that they both possess. Jonneine's message is one of love, loss, sexuality and life itself, and she delivers the pleasure and the pain with neither apology nor excuse.
