Exclusive pre-release!

For our first single in five years, we’re setting aside our trusty acoustic guitar for a moment and reaching back to our 80’s roots for a light and fun take on love and longing.

If you like Paramore, EchoSmith, Owl City or Mister Wives.

Our most popular song.

We are a songwriting duo from the Monterey Bay area. We focus on singer-centric hook-driven music. Our sound is sincere and catchy with a lot of bounce and a little quirk.

From the blogs…

The Jinxes have a beautiful grasp on composing delicate folk gems with ease. Just listen to their single, “If You Want.”

The song starts off with a cello and acoustic guitar, sort of like a lullaby. Then the girl/guy harmonies comes in, which resonate through the rest of the song. With just a cello, acoustic guitar, and harmonized vocals, this track takes on a delicate orchestral sound, only simplified. The lyrics are easy to follow (and easy to get stuck in your head — fair warning!). This track has all the attributes that one would look for in a classic folk song.

If their stew is as good as their music, I’d like to review that as well

This is charming, infectious acoustic pop from, by all accounts, rather charming people. Try it in the garden, under the sun, with a chilled glass of homemade lemonade. Perfect.
