Biography

Vocalist JINADU and producer KIRK DEGIORGIO first collaborated on the AS ONE album “21st Century Soul” (Ubiquity) in 2001.

Both have worked mainly in the electronic dance genre - recording for a wide range of labels from Mo’ Wax to Bitches Brew.

The Beauty Room came about through continued collaboration, with Degiorgio sending Jinadu sketches of songs with increasingly unusual progressions. Jinadu worked his magic enhancing them with catchy melodies, hooks galore and layers of rich harmonies.

The Beauty Room marks a notable stylistic shift for both Jinadu and Degiorgio. A debut single - a deft adaptation of Jan Hammer’s 1977 song ‘Don’t You Know’ - was recently released on Parlophone’s Vanity Projects offshoot and whilst it may have been a typically teasing Degiorgio hors d’oeuvre, its in the shape of a self-titled album that The Beauty Room present their full, lavish feast.

Opener “Soul Horizon” sets the tone; its lulling acoustic guitar intro presaging a phalanx of harmonies which usher in a melodic reverie of a song that could be a gently billowing outtake from the first Crosby Stills & Nash album. It’s a languorous intoxication that continues as the album gathers its own mellow pace.

Everywhere Jinadu’s harmonies weave, glide and plunge around the rippling guitars of (fellow Peacefrog artist) Ian O’Brien, marble smooth keyboards courtesy of Tom O’Grady, Chris Whitten’s crisp but discreetly funky drums and Degiorgio’s babbling electronic undercurrents.

    2 years ago there were two new (good) tracks on their myspace page, they both have ben removed for a while now. On GP's worldwide show, more than a year ago, KDG was hoping for a upcoming release and if i remember correctly also was stating that some "deals" had still to be made... But it was a long time ago. Such a shame.. Obviously

    They are a great band but I don't see any jazz in it.

    I've only just very recently discovered these guys - absolutely wonderful stuff. I would definitely recommend fans to check out 'So Still' by Mozez if you like The Beauty Room - VERY much cut from the same, smooth jib. :)

    This band does sound alot like older work from Zero 7. Really great though, I like it.

    When Holding On came on I thought I was hearing something by Zero 7 until I checked the song. Reminded me of When It Falls (the song, not the whole album). Admittedly I haven't heard anything else by TBR.. yet.. =P

    no idea why these guys don't get as much hype as zero7. They do what they do just as well, if not better.
