J*DaVeY Signs to Warner Bros. Records

Los Angeles-Based Duo in the Studio to Record the Upcoming Debut

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 12, 2007 -- Warner Bros. Records is pleased to announce that it has signed the uniquely hip talent, J*DaVeY to an exclusive recording contract. After several opening gigs for Prince, J*DaVeY, the Los Angeles-based duo (Miss Jack Davey and Brook D'Leau) have returned to the studio to gear up for the eagerly awaited album, title TBD, slated for a 2007 release.

"It's simple, we are a post hip-hop electronic new wave funk punk jazz band," says Brook. Adding Jack, "And we're glad that Warner Bros. Records had the vision and guts to follow through on two quirky kids who make unconventional pop hits."

Combining Hip-Hop, Soul, and New Wave, Jack and D'Leau break typical music barriers by transforming themselves into Electro-Soul carriers of futuristic "Funk-Punk" sounds. Similar to their non-conformist influences, the "urban Eurythmics" believe that music takes on many forms, and there are no limitations of expression -- to create one's identity means drawing outside the lines.

"We are so proud and excited to be working with such a unique and talented artist. There is nothing on the WBR roster or for that matter on the planet that sounds like J*DaVeY," says VP of A&R, Craig Aaronson. Adds fellow A&R representative, Tick, "When we saw J*DaVeY live we knew it was special. The group crosses all genres and knows no boundaries. From their influences to their material, a guy named Brook and a girl named Jack would start a party we all haven't been to in a long time."

And to their success, J*DaVeY's music has been licensed for episodes on the popular television drama "CSI: New York," Snoop Dogg's latest film "Bossin' Up," and the HBO series, "Entourage." Their demo songs, which were first leaked in cyber-space, are being played on radio stations in The States, as well as overseas by way of popular and award-winning radio personalities Gilles Peterson, Benji B, and Berry King.

The launch of their website has provided the group with a supportive fanbase, averaging 100,000 hits per month. And with no full album to date, the group has already received coverage in major music publications such as The Fader (May/June '05), URB Magazine (March '06), Xlr8r (March '06), YRB (January '07) and the COVER of BPM Magazine (January '07). Prepare yourself for a sneak peak into a new approach to music, yet to be discovered by most.
