About the Music
Crafted with magic, myth and folklore, Bye Bye Banshee combines elements of alternative folk and classical music to create songs about death from a feminine, pagan perspective. Bye Bye Banshee is the side project of songwriter Jezebel Jones. Bye Bye Banshee's first EP--Deathfolk Magic--was released to the public on October 5, 2018.

The first song, "If I Die in My Dreams", explores the idea that our inherent fear of death is closely linked to our fear of the Devil. Although the Irish Banshee is often misinterpreted as a strictly terrifying creature, "Bye Bye Banshee" portrays her as a empathetic ghost who warns us that Death is approaching. The song "Psychopomps" describes the spirit guides who surround a dying person, comforting them as they transition into the land of the dead, while "Skull Rattles" celebrates natural burial as our final gift to the earth.
