The Jean Genie single release 19.2.2021




The Jean Genie, featuring David McAlmont (McAlmont and Butler) and Sam Obernik, is the second of four singles to be released from Janette Mason’s EP Wall To Wall Bowie, celebrating the music of David Bowie.


Nearly fifty years on from the original recording this iconic song has been re-invented to great effect by innovative pianist, composer and producer Janette Mason, whose credits include Oasis, Seal, k.d.Lang, Robert Wyatt and many more.

Janette’s surprising and inventive approach, with a slowed down funk groove, heavy guitar/bass riff and jazz inflected Fender Rhodes takes the song in a whole new direction.

David McAlmont, Janette’s long-term collaborator, inflects the lyrics with a rhythm akin to a 60s beat poet whilst Sam Obernik‘s unique voice delivers a powerful punch to the chorus. 

This is Bowie as you’ve never  heard it before.



Janette is currently keyboard player for Bowie producer Tony Visconti's and ex-Spiders drummer Woody Woomansey's Ziggy era act HOLY HOLY.
