Jane Lee Hooker

Jane Lee Hooker is a band of five women from New York City who infuse the grit and attitude of their hometown into the blues.

With double lead guitars, a hard-driving rhythm section, and soul-scouring vocals, JLH honors the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Johnny Winter, Big Mama Thornton, and other blues greats. Few bands today deliver the goods with as much raw soul as JLH.
 
Since forming in 2013, JLH has graced many notable stages including NYC’s B.B. King Blues Club, Irving Plaza and the Highline Ballroom, Mountain Jam 2016, El Cid (L.A.), Pappy & Harriet’s (Pioneertown, CA), the Continental Club (Houston), and Antone’s Record Shop (Austin). They’ve shared bills with Wilco, Beck, Courtney Barnett, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes, Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones), the Wailers, Davey Knowles, and the Death Valley Girls, among others.

 

These women are by no means new to the game. Between them, they have decades of experience in the studio and on the road. Individually, the members of JLH have played for thousands of fans while sharing bills with bands like Motörhead, MC5, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, and Deep Purple.
