Most easily recognized by his trademark Blonde Mohawk, artist Jean Beauvoir, Originally with The Plasmatics, holds one of the most storied careers in music history. Introduced as the "Greatest Punk Band in the World" by Tom Snyder on his late night TV show, The Plasmatics, were the most outrageous, controversial and successful Punk Rock bands of all time. They dominated the world press performing before millions around the world with their legendary stage antics and rebellious Punk Rock message while influencing generations of up and coming musicians and fashion icons; influences that are still being talked about and seen today by such diverse artists as CeeLo Green, Lady Gaga, Corey Glover (Living Color), Miley Cyrus and Rihanna just to name a few. Even NFL Superstar Odell Beckham Jr. is now sporting a trademark Blonde Mohawk.    

 

After departing The Plasmatics, Beauvoir became just as successful as a solo artist, lead vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and music executive. Signed by Richard Branson of Virgin Records for his platinum debut solo album “Drums Along The Mohawk”, which spawned the international hit "Feel the Heat" which Sylvester Stallone hand picked as the lead track for his film COBRA, to numerous other successes throughout his career including his two successful Hard Rock/Metal bands Voodoo X and Crown of Thorns. Three albums from the Jean Beauvoir Crown Of Thorns series are as popular today as when first released:

 

Beauvoir's Crown Of Thorns self titled debut album triggered a highly publicized bidding war within the industry. Even Prince, a longtime fan of Beauvoir's since his Plasmatics days began bidding against major labels offering as high as $1M for rights to the album. When the highly anticipated album finally hit shops it was to critical acclaim. It hit the Metal Charts one week after release where it stayed for six months. Kerrang dubbed the album “One of the Finest American Hard Rock" albums in recent years.

 

His Crown Of Thorns "Lost Cathedral" album featuring Steven Van Zandt as co-writer on three songs with Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne/Megadeth) mixing the album is hailed as “One of the Best Hard Rock Albums of the Decade” by the press.

 

His Crown Of Thorns "Faith" album, released through Sony Red is hailed as "Probably the Best Sounding Crown Of Thorns album" by the press. Many believe Beauvoir's album "Faith" brought back the trademark Crown Of Thorns sound as defined in the self titled "Crown Of Thorns" debut album as well as in the Crown Of Thorns "Lost Cathedral" album, keeping in tact all the elements of infectious guitar riffs, soaring hook lines and great melodies. “Rock Ready” from the album is featured in MTV’s ROCK BAND GAME and is available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii.

 

Jean Beauvoir has collaborated (written and/or produced hits) with KISS, The Ramones, John Waite, Lionel Richie, Desmond Child, *NSYNC, Doro Pesch, Debby Harry and others. He is considered one of music's Most Influential Artist's in Rock, ranked as one of music's "Top 50 Black Rockers of All Time" (Guitar Magazine) and is one of the World's Most Successful Bass Guitarist's.

 

Music from Beauvoir's highly successful solo debut album "Drums Along the Mohawk" is currently beginning to see a resurgence in interest by music fans. Several videos from the album have seen huge increases in views over the past several months. "Feel the Heat" | Missing the Young Days | Gamlin Man | Nina  

 

Beauvoir's most recent album "American Trash" is currently being well received at radio and by music fans alike through social networks online. The highly anticipated American Trash album, a musical collaboration with former writing partner Micki Free (subtitled the Beauvoir/Free project) has been well received since its release through Frontiers/Universal. Upon release, Classic Rock Magazine "AOR" featured a five page retrospective of Beauvoir's career featuring the album which received 9 out of 10 favorable reviews from all major rock magazines including Classic Rock UK. Since its release, music from the album "American Trash" has continued to receive high marks and positive reviews from music critics, radio and music fans alike with more stations becoming aware of the music.

 

The video for the single "Voodoo Queen" by Jean Beauvoir on Vol. 1: The Awakening with his band Voodoo X is the only song in music history to ever be recorded during an actual live Voodoo ritual by Max Beauvoir who is well known as the Godfather of Voodoo. The album is still considered "One of the Best Hard Rock" albums of its era by music critics.
