Event Description


Much like the city that shapes her work, Detroit-based Jax Anderson, aka Flint Eastwood, wakes up every day confronting a world that tells us that we are not good enough, not unique enough, not rich, beautiful, or smart enough; not the right color; not the right gender. Success is as subjective as it is elusive, but if the debut single “Queen,” from Anderson’s Broke Royalty EP, reveals anything about the songstress, it’s that she’s everything she needs to be.


“Queen was written about the first time I was asked what it was like being a woman in music. I've always been the boss of my art-- I write my own songs, I play shows, I design a lot of my own graphics, make my own videos, craft my own photos, and I hustle alongside an amazing group of people just like every artist does. I had never considered myself different for being a woman. I have always set the standard with my team that I am the boss, regardless of my gender identity.”


It’s more than a gender thing for the Detroit-based artist though. It’s about overcoming feelings of uncertainty and forces of disempowerment; it’s about realizing your self-worth and carving your own path. The powerful indie-pop track is filled with urban percussion and orchestral instrumentation, and is a fitting lead single for Flint Eastwood’s 2017 EP.


Crafted entirely at Assemble Sound, an 1870's church repurposed into a recording compound and creative hub for musicians that was founded by Anderson in 2015, Broke Royalty has production support from fellow Detroit-native GRiZ & MUTEMATH’s Paul Meany, as well as a track with principle BØRNS collaborator Tommy English, and a home with Neon Gold Records (Tove Lo, Charli XCX, Marina & The Diamonds, et al).


Anderson dropped her latest track “Real Love,” in June 2018, marking her first release directly addressing the LGBTQ+ community, her personal orientation, and identity.  Detailing her struggle and repression within her church community, “Real Love” is a standout out moment for the songwriter which finds her proudly proclaiming and celebrating her identity as a gay identifying female. "I want people to know that there is hope and that there is a happy life out there for them. You are worthy of the most spectacular love and you will find it being exactly who you are" says Anderson on the motivation behind “Real Love.”
