Jitensha

Story

Jitensha is an indie music duo based in Montréal. The project consists of Canadian musician David Martinez and US-born performer Erin Rose Hubbard. These two charismatic musicians create upbeat, insightful, songs with a highly emotional concept, combining catchy melodies and indie aesthetics with understated song writing skills. The pair focuses on personal themes such as self-discovery, determination and empathy. Jitensha is the Japanese word for bicycle, which serves as a metaphor for the power of human energy. The direction you choose, and the energy you put in, determines where you end up!

Artist Quote: “For nearly all our songs, we have written the music and lyrics together. When we started Under Control we were driving between Portland and Eugene and having a chat. I (Rose) had heard a rumour about David back in Vancouver, and asked him if it was true or not. He was taken aback – it definitely wasn’t true. We talked about how one can overcome that nagging feeling of being misunderstood. It’s the idea of having all your dirty laundry out on display that inspired the music video. All you can really do is try not to sweat the small stuff. We were working on the verses on the drive and finished the chorus by the time they got to Santa Cruz.”
