THIS IS A COPING MECHANISM FOR A BROKEN HEART

This last year I locked myself in my studio to write about & process my first major breakup.

48hrs & 6 songs later, I had “THIS IS A COPING MECHANISM FOR A BROKEN HEART”.

Get ur tissues ready…

WHO IS JAX ANDERSON?

I’m first & foremost a songwriter & performer. In a past life I was a director & editor professionally & now use what I know to create all of my own content. Also v into photography & design as well. I like to say I’m creative boss. Also I was born & raised in Detroit, MI.

Why does Jax Anderson create music?

Because growing up I didn’t have anyone like me - openly gay, unashamedly obsessed with good pop songs, a female creative who directed & edited her own visuals, content, designs, & wasn’t using their body to sell their art (no shade, just not my thing). I didn’t have anyone to look up to that was a total creative boss. So I became one.

Who creates the music?

I write just about every song with my older brother, Seth (SYBLYNG). We then bring the track to friends around Assemble Sound to critique & make it better. We’ll touch on Assemble a little later…

Why does Jax Anderson create pop music?

78730018.JPG

Because good songwriting transcends genre, age, class, orientation, identity. I want to help people be themselves by authentically being myself & I love the reach of pop music. My main goal is to help as many people as possible through my music.


Who is Jax Anderson’s community?

I believe in creating a strong sense of community. My fans are diehards who will drive 9hrs in a day to see me play. I know about their lives & they know about mine.

My personal community can be found at Assemble Sound in Detroit, MI. It’s a church from the 1870’s that a few friends & I purchased to create a space for us to develop our craft & create community. It’s a recording studio/rehearsal space/licensing house that is a hub for a shit ton of Detroit creatives. Assemble is where I find my producers/creative collaborators. I’m able to record all of my music & make all of my content for practically no money because of this space. It’s awesome & if you really want to peer into my heart & soul you should definitely come check it out sometime.
