Jane Wiedlin

While in design college in the mid 1970′s, Wiedlin stumbled upon the burgeoning LA punk rock scene. She and Belinda Carlisle were inspired to form The Go-Go’s. The band quickly became local favorites and were signed by the indie label IRS Records. With most of their songs written or co-written by Jane (including the classic “Our Lips Are Sealed”),

The Go-Go’s went on to enormous success, selling out Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl and appearing twice on the cover of Rolling Stone. The band became the first ever all-girl group to write their own songs, play their own instruments, and become immensely popular doing it.

After seven years, The Go-Go’s split up and went their separate ways. Jane moved on to a solo career, releasing six albums of her own which included the hits “Rush Hour“, “Blue Kiss” and “Tangled” (a song featured in the movie “Pretty Woman”). Rolling Stone magazine called her last solo album “Kissproof World“, a “solo tour de force by an entrepreneur, an actress and rock goddess“.

Five years after breaking up, The Go-Go’s reformed and have remained a band ever since. The band continue to make their mark on popular culture, touring each year, and releasing the critically acclaimed God Bless The Go-Go’s in 2001.

Jane also has a new band called Elettrodomestico which is a 2 piece band made up of herself and songwriter/musician Pietro Straccia.

Formed in December of 2016, the band  released their first album, IF YOU’RE A BOY OR A GIRL, on October 23th 2017.
