Quotes

“Jax has created a space where nothing is weird – because everything is”Carly Lewis, The Globe & Mail on Drone Therapy

“weird — and important — as f---.”Jen McKerral, Up Here Fest on Drone Therapy

"Funny, sincere, super brave"Brendan Arnott, Sisters I Don't Know What This World is Coming To on Drone Therapy

"...our private crises laid bare for all to see, but still the incomprehensible mumblings of an existential Other."Joe Strutt, Mechanical Forest Sound on O / L

"Jax's music may be construed as pop, experimental, or something wholly other, but it never fails to captivate. Brigitte Bardon't exists within many different worlds at once, flipping through the static between people, cultures, scenes and stories."G Martel, London Fuse on Brigitte Bardon't
