Jamie Stewart is the front man and founder of the band Xiu Xiu. Xiu Xiu's music is drawn from British post punk and synth pop, modern Western classical, noise and experimental musics, Asian percussion musics, American folk, torch singers, house, techno and 1950s rock n roll. Jamie and best friend Angela Seo started the band in 2002 while living in San Jose, California. Since then Xiu Xiu has relentlessly toured all over the world since. The music has been called “self flagellating”, “harsh”, “brutal”, “shocking” and “perverse” but also “genius”, “brilliant”, “unique”, “imaginative” and “luminous.”
