Album Notes
“Passionate words and images, lyrical sucker punches. Somewhere between Shawn Colvin's saltier side and Patti Smith with a sense of humor. Caffeine digs deeply into the scared psyche.”
Austin Chronicle

the Jean Caffeine story

From drumming in the late 70’s San Fran punk girl group, The Urge and 80’s riotous Lower East Side percussion chant band, Pulsallama, Jean Caffeine has a long history of musical hjinks.

Eventually Jean traded in her drummer status and pulled up in Austin, TX where as Jean Caffeine’s All-Nite Truckstop she played her garage country for six years on back porches, in beer joints and alternative lounges. The band released a Diesel Only 45 and a self-titled Cd. Eventually the Truckstop ground to a halt and there was no choice for Jean but to finally become a grown-up. Forsaking bitter love, fully caffeinated coffee and her status as a two-bit local rock star, our heroine acquired a driver’s license, an art teaching career and a mortgage.

Out of the dissolution of a relationship, a band and a dream, Jean again rises from the ashes-from alternative roadhouse darling and slacker (look for her cameo in the movie of the same name) to the well-weathered rocker, riot, Grrrrrrrrandma, singer/songwriter she is today.
