LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… Coconut Spaceship is the record label of Little Galaxies, a band founded in Venice Beach by Jeanna Fournier and Amir Eshraghi. back in 2013. I’d been following the band for a while on Instagram, but I had yet to catch them performing live. Jeanna and Amir actually pulled double duty at this festival as are also members of the band The Cabbys, who played earlier in the day. Jeanna actually pulled triple duty as I also saw her running around the festival grounds handling hosting and videographer duties.
Little Galaxies describe their music as “cosmic sounds”. One their latest album, One with the Waking Sea- which was released earlier this year- those cosmic sounds are an amalgam of psychedelia, rock, and pop. This is my personal opinion… and I could be totally smoking crack here… but when I listened to their album, I kind of got a Sting circa “Englishman in New York” vibes.
After reading about the inspiration for the album, I felt privileged watching Little Galaxies perform as a full ensemble with Jeanna in fine performer form. Despite all that she’s been through with regards to physical and speech therapy to recover from her injuries, you would have never guessed that she had been through so much.
I was particularly intrigued by the undeniably smooth quality of Jeanna’s voice. I feel like the tone of her voice rests in some unfamiliar-to-me range that lies right on the cusp of her head and chest voice. I’m not sure if that makes much sense, but to me, it hits a really sweet spot of comfort. Even when her band is playing a kinetic instrumental passage, her voice seems to instantly infuse a serene calm, regardless of what she’s singing…”
