Seems like she’s been getting some pretty bad reviews in just the couple of dates she has opened for Jack so far. They are saying her mic was more animated then she was. I think this shows what a lot of people think. She does not have the talent and did not deserve a recording contract. Such ashame because the other opening acts for Jack have been stellar.
I had tickets for several of Jack’s shows where Olivia Jean opened for Jack. I was really angry I had to pay a lot of money to see an opening act that was at a high school battle of the bands level. Even bands that I have seen at high school battle of the bands level are far better than this girl. I don’t know what Jack was thinking producing an album for her and then having her as an opening act. Does he want to turn his fans off all together? I get they had some kind of relationship before but does that mean he has to inflict her terrible talent onto his fans? Jack and Third Man should be refunding money to everyone who paid for tickets for the shows Olivia Jean was the opening act.
I saw her open for Jack White and she was fantastic. A little serious maybe, but her guitar playing was great. Leave it to women to knock another one down cause they’re jealous Lol.
