Jenevieve Cruz and the Submissives


We are submissive to music


Based out of Sayreville, NJ, JENEVIEVE CRUZ AND THE SUBMISSIVES have come together to create their own unique rock sound. Aside from performing their version of high-energy covers, they are consistently producing original music that pushes the boundaries of what rock and roll music could be.

Jenevieve Cruz, along with Ronnie Fischer, started writing songs together in February 2013 and formed a band shortly after. Cruz writes catchy alternative lyrics that pull you in.

"They are not your typical rock band; they bring a unique dynamic and color to each song that showcases the creativity and musicianship of its creators. They sound like a 70's band in the 21st century."

- David Boulton (Soundtrack Group NYC)

Influences: No Doubt, The Rolling Stones, Tool, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and The Killers 

JC+TS Released their debut 5 song EP titled "Echoes" on Corporal Music Group, Jenevieve Cruz's Independent Label, while simultaneously going through some lineup changes. Their ballad "Picture Of You" was Produced by Legendary John Siket. The single "Lose Myself In You" was licensed to Director Nick Basile for his Feature film "Dark" Starring: Whitney Able, Alexandra Breckenridge and Michael Eklund.

The band has shared a stage with National Cover Band "Appetite for Destruction" and with the new line-up, the band plans on releasing new singles as well as continuing to perform all over the tri-state area.

"We want people to get excited about rock music again",says Nicole.

"I need your affection, your constant connection, kiss me smooth or until I'm drained" lyrics from their single "Do It To Myself" screams hopeless romantic and that I am. I am also extremely passionate about writing lyrics that are universal and music that touches the soul", says Jenevieve. 

EP "Echoes" is Available Now on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and more...
