After a couple of promising sets at The Great Escape, French super talented singer-songwriter, drummer and beatmaker, JAIN was back in the UK to play her first London gig at a packed Courtyard Theatre. She played tracks from Zanaka, her first album already Platinum in France plus a couple of new tracks like 'Dynabeat', joined on stage by an enthusiastic and charmed audience. Bertrand Bosrédon took photos and asked a few people how they heard about the gig.


Gabriella, Events Manager, 23

How did you hear about the show? A friend of mine had seen Jain and recommended I come to see her in London.

Other bands I listen to: James Blake, PJ Harvey, Tame Impala, Chet Faker.


Kevin, Accountant, 48

How did you hear about the show? Intrigued after seeing her video on YouTube.

How was it for you? Really enjoyed her show, she has a lot of energy and gave a very confident performance, love her interactions with her fans. Think she will go a long way!

Amal, teaching assistant, 24

How did you hear about the show? I came across a poster for the gig while stopping at the Institut Français toilets. I recognised the artist thanks to her typical outfit: a friend of mine had played me 'Come' on YouTube. The music had struck me and I kept the image of that multi-armed, black and white lady in mind.

Other bands I listen to: ANOHNI, Hercules and Love Affair, Count Basie Orchestra, Prodigy, Buraka Som Sistema.


Christopher, Software Developer, 34

How did you hear about the show? I found out about Jain with my startup Giggypop.

Hope, Year 1 pupil, 6 
(and daughter of the photographer)

How did you hear about the show? I watched 'Come' on YouTube lots and really wanted to meet Jain. This is my first concert. I’m a little bit nervous


How was it for you? I thought there would be seats. I like that she played many songs. I wasn't expecting her to give me a kiss and also I wasn't expecting everyone to sing. I'm sad I was too shy to go on stage with everybody. 

Other bands I listen to: Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Everything Everything, Petite Meller.
