Growing up in a family of academics and doctors who all shared a huge passion for arts in their free time, Sno's artistic taste began to take shape very early on. Her grandfather, a renowned psychiatrist in his time, led her down the path of fine arts and swing music, however she couldn't keep her eyes off his medical books. The vintage melancholy cut with modern wit would quickly become home to Sno's restless mind and inspire her visually as well as musically. To this day, she pays very little attention to music genres and prefers focusing on the 'soul' of each song individually. Given the frequent use of heavy guitars, the industry has labeled her music anything from 'orchestral metal', 'modern theatrical rock' to 'industrial pop' and 'rock cabaret'.
Having lived in three different countries by the age of 11, constant inspiration as well as alienation only fired up the need to express herself artistically. With boxes full of sketches and over 200 songs written by the age of 18, she abandoned her college art studies to fully focus on her music and visual arts career.
Today, Snovonne is not only known to be the woman behind the music but also the video and graphic artist behind her music's visuals.
The interest in her "elegantly disturbing" work has been growing steadily and she's done plenty of art work for musicians and companies around the world.
Snovonne has been touring with her live band throughout the years, building her following the organic way. Ranging from clubs to bigger venues and festivals, the shows always lead to a strong connection with the audience. Snovonne's authenticity attracts genuine fans. Fans that crave new music, emotion and cathartic art. Although all tours have been across Europe, the booking is working hard on including a US stretch in the near future.
The band was formed from an idea of the guitarist/composer of that time, and then producer of electronic music and Tecno DJ, REZ. It’s with this fusion of electronic and heavy metal sounds that gave the incipit to the creation of this project. Shortly after, Rez contacted and proposed the idea to his friend and frontman, Billy T Cooper, who accepted enthusiastically.
The band now took on the name JTR Sickert, acronym of the 19th Century painter, Walter Richard Sickert, considered by the criminalist writer Patricia Cornwell, to be Jack The Ripper. Hence JTR
A year after its formation, the band recorded a 4 track demo at the Fear Studios , entitled “Everything is growing old”, which received good appraisal from the most important heavy metal magazines and webzines.
Almost at the same time, the group was taking on live gigs with a series of concerts with The Family, Godiva, Das Ich, Sadist, Vision Divine, Domine.
The band’s first album, “You deserve panic”, also recorded at the Fear Studios, published by the independent label “Bagana Records/Edel, came out in 2009, and was followed by the video “ Crystal night”, promo single of the album.
“You deserve panic” was considered by the press as the best album (2009) of its gender in the underground scene, and was also exceptionally well appraised by European magazines, let alone an unexpected following amongst the public.
In the 2011 and 2012, JTR toured together with “Theatres des Vampires”, during their European Tour, which visited countries like Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, Turkey , Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria gathering fans along the way.
The first of January was released a new video, OBLIVION, from etoile new upcoming album, and the band did a mini tour promoting the new single, playing some gigs in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Latvia and Estonie, togheter with Combichrist and Snovonne.
The tour ended in Milan, playing with the Japanese star MIYAVI.
In the meantime a new guitarist and musician - well known as ZAP - joined the band to improve jtr 's live sound.
In October 2015 JTR signed a record deal with the german label MAKE BIG RECORDS, and the new album, etoile, was released at the end of January 2016.
