Info zu TO LOVE IS TO LIVE

Jehnny Beth veröffentlicht am 12. Juni ihr Solo-Debüt "To Love Is To Live". Das Album ist eine klangliche Tour de Force, wobei Beth die tiefsten Bereiche ihres kreativen Bewusstseins erforscht, eingehüllt in einen Sturm von Klängen, die das Ergebnis der Zusammenarbeit mit Produzenten wie Atticus Ross, Flood und Johnny Hostile, sowie Songschreiberin und enger Freundin Romy Madley Croft (The xx) sind.

Von zerrüttenden Machtverhältnissen ("I'm The Man") über die zarten Tiefen der Sexualität ("Flower") bis hin zur Vermählung dichter Texturen mit starken Instrumentals ("The Rooms"), "To Love Is To Live" zeigt eine Jehnny Beth, die ihrer intensiven Verletzlichkeit eine herrliche Stimme verleiht - musikalisch und lyrisch - wie niemand sonst, der heutzutage Musik macht. Auf "To Love Is To Live" bleibt keine Linie ungekreuzt, kein Sound unerforscht und kein Thema zu existenziell, sodass ein Album hervorgebracht wird, das so eklektisch und kompliziert ist, wie seine Schöpferin mit all ihren ganz eigenen Perspektive auf die Welt.

Jehnny Beth erschien erstmals als charismatische Lead-Sängerin und Co-Autorin der britischen Post-Punk-Band Savages auf der öffentlichen Bildfläche. Savages wurden für ihre beiden Album-Klassiker "Silence Yourself" (2013) und "Adore Life" (2016) für den Mercury-Preis nominiert. Seit 2017 befindet sich die Band jedoch in einer Pause, und Jehnny Beth hat die Zeit ganz für sich genutzt.

Jehnny Beth
Silence Yourself Whether she's making music, acting, or writing, Jehnny Beth challenges conventions, her audience -- and herself. Her unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries first became widely known during her time with Savages, whose acclaimed albums Silence Yourself (2013) and Adore Life (2016) delivered a jolt of uncompromising feminine energy into post-punk as well as the U.K. rock scene of the 2010s. When that band took a break, Beth's horizons broadened. Her searing, sexually liberated 2020 debut album To Love Is to Live added touches of jazz, industrial music and torch songs to her repertoire, while her film roles and books proved she could be equally provocative and riveting in just about any medium.

Born Camille Berthomier in Poitiers, Vienne, France, Beth's parents were theater directors who encouraged her creativity. She took voice and piano lessons starting at age eight; by the time she was 10, she'd starred in a production of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt. However, the rest of Beth's family was Catholic and traditionally minded, and she felt stifled. After studying dramatic arts at the conservatoire de Poitiers, Beth moved to London in 2006 to pursue music. It was there that she met Johnny Hostile (a.k.a. Nicolas Congé), who became her longtime life and creative partner. Together, they became the lo-fi band John & Jehn, which released 2008's John & Jehn and 2010's Time for the Devil before the project ended in 2011. That year, Beth and Hostile founded the Pop Noire label as a platform for their other artistic endeavors.

Late in 2011, Beth joined forces with guitarist Gemma Thompson (a former John & Jehn member), bassist Ayse Hassan, and drummer Fay Milton as Savages. Led by Beth's commanding presence, the band's electrifying brand of post-punk soon won acclaim: At the end of 2012, Savages were nominated for the BBC Sound of 2013 award, and their debut album, May 2013's Silence Yourself, was nominated for the Mercury Prize.

In 2015, Beth embarked on a few solo projects and performances. That March, she performed at the opening of the David Bowie Is … exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris; in November, Beth and the Strokes' Julian Casablancas released a cover of the Danish punk band Sort Sol's 1983 collaboration with Lydia Lunch, "Boy-Girl." Savages returned in January 2016 with their second album Adore Life, which, like Silence Yourself, earned a Mercury Prize nomination. Along with touring in support of the album, Beth continued to establish herself as a solo presence by opening for PJ Harvey’s June 2016 performance at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England and appearing on Trentemøller’s album Fixion.

At the end of 2016, Savages went on hiatus. Beth took the opportunity to recharge creatively, performing with her friend Romy Madley Croft’s group the xx and collaborating with Gorillaz and Noel Gallagher on the song “We Got the Power” from the band’s 2017 album Humanz. She returned to France, where she settled Paris and bought a studio with Hostile. Beth also returned to acting (prior to her time with Savages, she’d appeared in a few small French films) and earned a César nomination for her performance in Catherine Corsini’s 2018 drama An Impossible Love. She and Hostile then collaborated on the music to the Chelsea Manning documentary XY Chelsea, which they issued on Pop Noire in June 2019.

To make her solo debut album, Beth tapped Flood, Atticus Ross and Hostile as producers, and brought on Madley Croft, Idles' Joe Talbot, and actor Cillian Murphy as contributors. Spanning jazz and industrial as well as post-punk, the freewheeling and challenging To Love Is to Live arrived in June 2020. That September saw the publication of Crimes Against Love Memories, a collection of erotic short stories; later in the year, she appeared in Kaamelott – Premier Volet, the movie sequel to director Alexandre Astier’s long-running television series about King Arthur and his knights.
