Meet JAX: singer, songwriter, screenwriter, actress, activist, producer, director, 21st century renaissance woman. Jax is currently fine tuning her debut EP, ELEVATOR GOODBYES, which is scheduled for release this summer. Tracks from Elevator Goodbyes can now be sampled at MySpace and Reverb Nation:
Jax just wrapped shooting the short film Glow, which she co-wrote with the film's director, Nicolas Kadima. She has guest-starred on the hit sci-fi television series Eureka and appeared alongside the comic genius of actor Eugene Levy in two American Pie films.
The television role of Joan of Arx on Canada’s Space Channel made her a fan favorite of Canadian sci-fi fans from coast-to-coast. She has performed for the stage with the Soulpepper Theater Company, Motley Theater Company, Festival of Original Theater, Not 2B Confused, Players Academy and Artists Play Showcase.
Jax is also a professional dancer, having studied with the Toronto Dance Theater, American Ballet Theater and Kirov Academy of Ballet. Her love for dance and choreography was highlighted in a 2006 Oakville Beaver article, Dancin’ To Her Own Tune.
Jax's passion and commitment to causes such as Earth Hour inspired her to organize and host her own 2008 Earth Hour event in Vancouver, the only event of its kind held in the city that day. The event had over 150 attendees and was broadcast live around the world via the internet.
Jax also wrote, produced, directed and starred in an Earth Hour PSA/Music Video Flicking The Lights Off, which made its debut on the popular Vancouver talk show Urban Rush. The video was screened at the 2008 Projecting Change Vancouver Green Film Festival, Vancouver’s Celluloid Social Club and Vancouver’s Car Free Community Fest, has received thousands of hits on You Tube and has been posted on Green sites and blogs all over the net.
As a result of her efforts, World Wildlife Fund Vancouver invited Jax to participate as a celebrity guest at their 2009 Earth Hour event. Jax has pledged to continue her efforts to raise awareness about the need for less energy consumption in the future.
Jax is represented by Lisa King of King Talent in Vancouver and Toronto and Superior Talent in Los Angeles. Her PR is handled by NoodleHead Productions.
