We recently shot with the tattooed goddess Seventy Jane and got to know her rock n roll self a little bit better. Peep our interview and photo set with Seventy below.
GK: You're a pretty rock n roll lady.How does music influence your lifestyle?
Seventy Jane: Music doesn't just influence my lifestyle, it pretty much IS my lifestyle. As a singer, I draw inspiration from a copious amount of musicians. From my love of early 90's indie bands like Dinosaur Jr and Boys Life (and so many others that I could write an entire interview just listing bands), to my borderline insane obsession with Neil Diamond. Even though I hate to admit it sometimes, I find myself singing out loud to the likes of Kesha and Carly Rae Jepsen. (C'mon you 'love call me maybe' too) I would love to say I could write music to match my love of Depeche Mode, but c'mon. That's impossible. Though I'd fantasize quite often about learning a few stage moves from Dave Gahan... Then of course we'd get married, and run off into the sunset riding unicorns. I digress. Music is my boyfriend, girlfriend, mother, and father.
GK: Speaking of rock n roll, what is your favorite band?
Seventy Jane: Haha that's like asking me to name my favorite shade of black. But I guess if I were stranded on a desert island I couldn't survive without Neil Diamond, Neil Young, and Depeche Mode. Wait. Can Robert Johnson come too??! Aack. Too hard.
GK: What is your favorite fashion trend of the last decade?
SJ: Fashion, fashion, fashion. How I love thee. That's a hard one too! These questions are tough! Ummmm, I love the return of the whole bohemian vibe. I'm a hippie at heart, so I love anything that flows. I love the return of platforms. Studs are great. And I like that fur seems to not be as controversial anymore; or maybe I'm just delusional. I just love that you can wear basically anything you want these days. Everything goes.
GK: Tell us something most people wouldn't know about you!
SJ: I'm an open book, so it's rare to not know something about me. I guess maybe the fact that I have a nerdy, pimpled 13 yr old trapped inside my body. God that sounded better in my head. Haha lets just say on any given day I can keep up a good comic conversation with the best (or dorkiest) of them. And even though comics have become more mainstream these days, as well as tattoos (that's a whole other topic) at least I have a deep rooted background with that world; and the collection to prove it. That said, HULK SMASH!!!!!!
