Biography

Somewhere between the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O and Patti Smith there is the dazzling, charismatic JJ Stanness, singer of KarmaDeva. With vibrant guitar sounds, driving bass and powerfully expressive vocals this band are comparable to the likes of White Lies, Florence and the Machine, Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Editors.

KD are fronted by the enigmatic and unpredictable JJ Stanness, whose prom dress-and- bunches sweetness are streaked with a darkness betraying her former life as a mordantly satirical writer and actress with comedy partner Julia Davis (Nighty Night). Fans have likened JJ’s voice to Patti Smith and whilst they share a smokily compelling penetration, she reveals her individuality with seductive, soaring and at times touchingly vulnerable vocals.

KarmaDeva emerged onto the UK scene with such bands as Boxer Rebellion, The Joy Formidable, Nylo, Broken Links and American indie band NRWO. Their powerful stage presence and refreshingly unique take on the New Wave sound has been captivating audiences, drawing them into the excitement of their atmospheric yet catchy songs. This is a band with real depth and resonance, whose vivid and lyrical imagery of love, longing and redemption seduce your consciousness, hook you in, and take up residence.

Following in the footsteps of such greats as The Beatles, KarmaDeva have completed three German tours, appeared on National TV and become hot favourites on the Berlin scene.
