"I have always loved two things;
MUSIC and FASHION.
They go hand in hand. All of my heroes, icons and inspirations in music have had a distinct style and sense of self. I learned a lot from my grandfather, a Croatian immigrant and tailor and my mom, a design school graduate. When I would dream up ideas for looks I wanted, we would make them ourselves. From the young punk rock aesthetic I adopted before I was even a teenager to my gothic teen years, I always had a vision for fashion and would make it come to life. I love to share my music & my playing and now, I would like to share with you with Jennie Vee BRAND. AVAILABLE IN ALL SIZES for men and women and anyone who wants something unique, handcrafted and limited edition from an independent fashion designer - ME!"
Jennie Vee is a songwriter, guitarist and bassist from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
Vee grew up listening to Hole, The Cure and Jane's Addiction and taught herself guitar. She quit high school and relocated to Southsea, England, where she recorded her first demo with her musical mentor Jim Shaw from the band Cranes. She returned to Canada and formed a band, Tuuli, who released an EP on Sympathy for the Record Industry, an LP on Linus and her songs were featured on Comedy Central and Degrassi: The Next Generation. She released her solo EP Die Alone in 2014 and was subsequently discovered by Love who recruited her to play bass for the Endless Summer tour with Lana Del Rey. Her first full-length album, Spying, was released the following year.
She lives in Los Angeles, California and is a touring member of Eagles of Death Metal. She has also played bass with Courtney Love, supported Echo and The Bunnymen and the Manic Street Preachers and played with Tamaryn. She has described herself as a "recovering goth", and she has cited New Order's Peter Hook as an influence on her playing, adding "I love adding a texture... rather than sticking with the root note."
