Jette-Ives Is the amalgamation of writer/singer Jette Kelly and composer/producer Holmes Ives. Jette and Ives were introduced in 2005 by a mutual friend who predicted an explosive collaboration. He was right. The duo spent the greater part of the year crafting songs inspired by a dark, torrid affair... The band emerged from Washington, D.C.'s vibrant indie music scene and intensified their live show experience by adding players with diverse musical backgrounds from the jazz and underground DJ worlds.


Jette Kelly Is a classically trained vocalist whose powerful voice, intimate lyrics, and charismatic stage presence have enabled her to tour Europe and share festival playbills with names such as The Chemical Brothers, Scissor Sisters, and Franz Ferdinand. Jette's provocative artistry has attracted musician fans from around the world, allowing for future projects in many musical genres.


Holmes Ives Is a renowned composer-producer who has released over forty singles on labels including Bedrock, Six Degrees, Global Underground, Caffeine, Renaissance, Koch, and Yoshitoshi. Ives has produced and remixed for artists such as Moby, Bebel Gilberto, Deep Dish, BT, John Digweed and many others over the last decade from his recording studio.


In the Deep Is Jette-Ives's debut album, to be released January 2007 and accurately described by Music Monthly as "moody, devilish trip hop." In the Deep is a gorgeous ride through a cinematic landscape of lust and heartache, pleasure and pain. From start to finish, the album thrills as it skillfully moves between fiery anthems and steamy, insinuatory ballads.


The Performance of Jette-Ives's rich, fevered sound has filled venues as varied as Washington, D.C.'s DC9 and Miami, Florida's beachfront Saxony, in collaboration with The New World Symphony. Jette-Ives's live show seduces with the intoxicating combination of Jette's captivating song-stories, Ives's pulsing orchestration, and the band's driving bass and beats.
