Tedious & Brief at the M-Shop

Thu / October 21, 2021
8:00 pm – 10:00 pm / Memorial Union M-Shop, ISU Campus

Chicago-based alternative pop artist Jamie Jacobsen, known onstage as Tedious & Brief, creates nostalgic anthems with her unique airy synth and smooth vocals. With strong family ties to music, Jacobsen took up guitar and songwriting at a young age. She identifies some of her earliest influences as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, though her style has evolved greatly since childhood to form a more polished sound featuring elements and vocals akin to Maggie Rogers or Lorde. Des Moines-based indie-pop artist EleanorGrace will support the show.
