The band’s multifacetedness has cultivated a strong presence in the Portland, Los Angeles, and Houston music scenes. Playing alongside artists such as Mavi, The Aquadolls, and Never Ending Fall, Jakki and The Pink Smudge continues to complement a wide range of musicians while bringing their own distinctive, moving, and peachy sound.
