Jacqueline Caruso has finally decided to release music as just herself. Formerly one half of Thurlow with her husband Augustus Green, she went on to release a solo album under the moniker Swan that produced a collection of hushed sincerity but perhaps never unleashed Caruso’s authentic persona.

Jacqueline Caruso will perform at the WitZend at 3:00 PM this Saturday, June 22 as part of Free Bike Valet‘s showcase for the Venice Music Crawl. Also performing is Lipstick Lumberjack, Phoebe Bridgers, The Californian, Halfbluud, Lost On Purpose, Jim And Sam, The Get Down Boys, Steffaloo, and The Cerny Brothers. And it’s FREE!
