JJAAXXNN is the solo project of Joshua Bruner, best known as the frontman of the prolific and inventive San Francisco psych rock band Magic Leaves. An adept guitarist and songwriter, JJAAXXNN sees Bruner trading his heady guitar rock for synths and samplers, resulting in laid-back, infectious jams influenced by R & B crooners, dub, and electronic dance music. After a year of traveling—with extended stays in Berlin, Houston, and Portland—Bruner has relocated to Los Angeles, enchanting SoCal discos with sun-drenched vibes.
