After a successful Bonnaroo (including Superjam with Chance the Rapper) and FOUR Lollapalooza shows, Flint Eastwood announces a tour with PVRIS, Lights, and Voodo Music & Arts Experience.
Detroit's Flint Eastwood released Broke Royalty EP on Neon Gold Records
“One of the talks of SXSW, Flint Eastwood sounded absolutely incredible.”
- Huw Stephens, BBC Radio1
“Musically grandiose and empowering”
“Lolla, this is your wake-up call, thanks to Flint Eastwood, aka Detroit singer Jax Anderson. "Wake up, Lazarus!" she demands. A pig-tailed dynamo in black, Anderson veers between gothic-tinged mood pieces such as "Find What You're Looking For" and uptempo electro-rock celebration "Small Victories." She also provides breathing exercises and dance instructions. "You think I can dance?" she says. "How about just flailing." Word to the rhythmically impaired.”

Today, Detroit’s Flint Eastwood (Jax Anderson) reveals the video “Rewind” HERE, featuring fellow Detroit-native and electronic heavyweight GRiZ, taken from her critically acclaimed debut EP Broke Royalty via Neon Gold Records (Christine And The Queens, Charli XCX).
Besides having played 4 successful Lollapalooza shows (incl supports for Phantogram and Sylvan Esso), Flint Eastwood had a huge set at Bonnaroo and was the youngest artist invited to join the “Superjam” to perform “Get Up Offa That Thing” by James Brown with Preservation Hall and Jon Batiste as her backing band. On top of it all, she sang backing vocals for Chance The Rapper’s version of “Hey Ya”! Next up, Flint Eastwood will play a string of upcoming Fall festivals including Voodoo Music & Arts Experience, she will be kicking off a USA support tour with PVRIS and Lights in October.
Anderson elaborates: “Rewind is about the innocence of youth. When you're young, like little kid young, you have such an honest and untainted perspective on life. It's a beautiful thing. It's a time when love is just love, no labels or expectations, and all you care about is having fun and living life to the fullest.
I originally wrote this track as a hail mary for GRiZ's last record. He hit me up a few days before they were starting to mix "Good Will Prevail" about an instrumental he really wanted on the record, but it needed a vocalist. I was touring at the time and pretty much the only time I could finish it was way early in the morning the day before it was due. I got in the studio and knocked it out in about 2 hours with my collaborator, SYBLYNG. Grant loved it, but it ultimately didn't fit the vibe of his record. A few months later I got a text from Grant saying I should release it on my new EP, and I was in.”
Additionally, the EP finds production support from MUTEMATH’s Paul Meany, as well as a track with principal BØRNS collaborator Tommy English.
At the start of the year, Flint Eastwood’s empowerment anthem “Queen” was released ahead of the Women’s Marches across the nation. In March, she was hailed as one of the breakout acts of SXSW. Following the conference, Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 declared her “absolutely incredible” ahead of his world premiere of “Push” featuring Tunde Olaniran. Listen HERE.
Jax has always been carving out her own path. In 2015, she helped co-found Assemble Sound, a collaboration studio space for Detroit musicians to meet, find resources, and ultimately create good art. They raised funds, purchased a church from the 1870’s, and renovated it as a community. This is the space where Flint Eastwood writes and records her music, the space that sparked the idea for Broke Royalty.
