About

Hello there, this is Jenny.

Firstly, Dan, Chris and I are sending all our love and strength to you through this wonky time. I created this page a year ago and then got all scared about it. So I left it dormant. But now that 2020 just went and got cancelled it seems the perfect time to share our world with you. Our Autumn/Winter performances are cancelled, so we are going underground. We are mulling, observing, concocting and resisting the urge to be seen.
 
Except here.

This here Patreon community -  THE BUSH REPUBLIC - is our place to share the inner life of Bush Gothic. Maintaining an inner life is essential for our artistic practise. The Bush Republic is very different from our social media platforms, it is to share our creative journey. The insights, the failures and the things that work on the way to making music and making a show.

Should we even disclose our inner life? Does that not immediately change it to something else? Something un-inner? These are the knots I often find myself in. As the head boss fiddle-singer of Bush Gothic, this page is my baby.

It's so obviously not a baby.

We all need to nurture our true selves, the selves that are rarely displayed in public. This is my great challenge and one that I am excited about sharing. Why excited? Because I am  update on who and where I am. Composing, directing photo shoots, preparing for a radio interview; I love doing all these things. The role of a singer can really fuck with your identity, particularly on tour. Is my hair OK? Are people listening to my hair? Will people like this new song. Do they like me? Do I care? (yes) and can I please be left alone after a concert. Why is nobody talking to me after a concert?

As a band leader of two men plus a single mother of two teenager boys, well, these roles can get pretty interesting. Chris Lewis and Dan Witton will be joining me here at the Bush Republic from time to time 'cause they are the most excellent of men.
Join us for the ride!
