Jinx Lennon is a performance artist a spoken word/singing fireball of energy who creates surreal baptist preacher like persona in his shows and plays bullet paced acoustic and electro tunes ,slam poetry style pieces,and shares the stage with his electrifying stage partner the soulful Miss Paula Flynn who is also a songwriter . Tony Clayton Lea described them recently within the Ticket section of the Irish Times as an 'exhilarating provocative pairing'. Jinx has three acclaimed albums to his name and has been touring and pushing out his fierce and uplifting music at home and abroad since 1999 playing shows,lighting up the bars of Reykjavik in Iceland,sitting on the back of a Greyhound bus touring the East coast of US ,and playing festivals in London and Brighton.At home in Ireland Jinx/Paula have played Oxegen in 2006 , the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in Belfast in 2005,the alternative Galway Arts Festival Project 06 in Galway in 2006 ,the Spiegeltent Dublin Fringe Festival in2005/2007 Cuirt International Festival of Literature in Galway 2008 , Electric Picnic in 2006/2007/2008,Mantua 2007/2008 ,Green Gathering Wexford 2008, and the Flatlakes Festival 2007/2008 hosted by writer Pat Mc Cabe and film maker Kevin Allen.Jinx and Paula played two shows this year with the legendary Christy Moore and Damien Dempsey who recently described Jinx in Hot Press magazine as ''the best lyricist in Ireland''.

Also into Jinx Lennon's work include Writer Pat Mc Cabe who says 'Jinx Lennon is the most original and singular talent i have come across in years' and Actor Keith Allen in Q magazine give this quote:'Jinx does a song called 'Forgive the Cunts' which is amazing.Whenever i'm stressed i use it as my catchphrase'.

Peter Murphy from Hot Press:Jinx Lennon is a true original,a rock n roll outsider whose music throbs to the pulse of rural Ireland.

The documentary 'Noisemaker' about the music and life of Jinx (and featured Miss Paula) was televised last year on RTE,and was screened as part of the Guthgafa Film Festival in Donegal ,and other TV appearances include a performance of 'City of Styrofoam Cups' on the Ardan show special last year for TG4 and ''Escape from the Planet of the Apes'' on BBC 2 for ''Imeall Geal ''.
