After the band had been called Sidestreet Sirens for a brief period, the music changed direction with the birth of the song Simple Solutions. They then started using more untraditional elements; electric guitar played with a bow and more frequent use of unusual time-signatures. During the spring of 2003, the band changed their name again; this time to Jezebel. At this point the band headed for the studio for the first time and recorded a demo consisting of three songs: Blame Me, Strangest Patterns and Simple Solutions. Jezebel got their first opportunity at national fame, when NRK Petres radioshow for unsigned bands, Urørt, played Simple Solutions on air.
The time that followed is characterized by a constant evolution of the repertoire, active use of the Urørt homepage (where a live version of the song Dissect is listed as one of the favourites) and several gigs in Oslo. The music has become what it is today as a result of the band-members. The music spans over a lot of genres and you find elements of jazz, blues and prog as well as traditional pop and rock. Musical quibble, as some would say.
*2001 The band was founded by Helene Ring Teppan and Vivian Mari Ozalbo.
