Pan Pan (US)
She is best known for her work with Indie Pop band The Love Lights, with whom she played trumpet and keyboards until early 2009 when she left the band to focus on Pan Pan. Over the past three years she has also played trumpet for Yogoman Burning Band, Thieves of Kailua (side project of U.S.E. frontman Jason Holstrom) and The Presidents Of The United States Of America. Jerns was featured on the PUSA’s 2008 album “These Are The Good Times, People.” Live performances with them that year included sold out shows at Western Washington University and The Paramount in Seattle and a Main Stage performance at the 2008 Sasquatch Music Festival.
Most recently she has joined the live line up of The Ghost And The Grace, the side project of Daniel Anderson of Idiot Pilot, on trumpet and piano. Although Pan Pan, as a live performing entity has only been around since the end of 2008, Jerns’ music has already started to captivate the Pacific Northwest. With her live band in tow, which includes Austin Richey on drums, Andrew Bybee on Trumpet/Flugelhorn and Coltan Foster on Stand-up Bass, Pan Pan has played shows with a wide variety of acts including bills with everything from pop punk, singer songwriter, metal and riot grrl groups. In 2009 Pan Pan made a big impact in the local scene, releasing two limited run albums “Live At The Underground Coffeehouse in April on Avocado Family Records and “New Arms” in October (self released locally, Ditto/Sound Patrol Records Digitally). They also played an eclectic mix of shows including support slots for Canadian Folk-Rock band Rock Plaza Central and the electro-acoustic duo The Books as well as headlining stages at both the Bellingham Electronic Arts Festival (B.E.A.F 09) and Ladyfest Bellingham 2009.
With 2010 looming on the horizon plans for a new full length album and extensive touring are coming together.
