Last month, recently engaged couple Mark Ballas and BC Jean took their music duo Alexander Jean to San Diego's own House of Blues. The show was a smash success - one we at FINE magazine were lucky enough to attend - and a fantastic way to spend a Friday night. Just as guitarist Mark Ballas promised in our interview with him, the pair filled the room with a surprisingly big sound and powerful songs. But what really made Alexander Jean's House of Blues show stand out was the undeniable charisma that exuded from BC Jean. Her energy throughout the performance and in between songs was contagious and only matched by her flawless voice.
Today officially marks the release of Alexander Jean's second single, titled "Thief." This song is now available on iTunes. The duo, featuring San Diego native BC Jean, has already achieved a wide array of success. Their first single, "Roses and Violets" hit #1 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart, as well as #6 on the iTunes overall chart, and it was even featured on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
This new single is admittedly a little different in vibe from "Roses and Violets" - which offered a haunting and heartbreaking ballad - but "Thief" will undoubtedly add to Alexander Jean's burgeoning success; the song boasts a catchy melody and BC Jean's signature killer vocals. "Thief" is addictive in nature and incredibly catchy - hear it just once, and it will be stuck in your head for days.

Apart from being a badass music duo, Alexander Jean offers up something unique: namely, their very own love story. The couple met in 2012 at a singer-songwriter night. Ballas was instantly smitten, but he had to wear BC Jean down before she agreed to go out with him. “She blew me off for a couple of months, but eventually she agreed to let me take her out," Ballas told us last month. From there, the rest is history. Not only has the couple formed a flawless musical union through the creation of Alexander Jean, but they have plans to join together in the union of holy matrimony as well. We certainly can expect big things from Alexander Jean in the future, and we can't wait until they come back to play in San Diego!
"Thief" is a single off of Alexander Jean's upcoming EP, which will be released on June 3rd. "Thief" is officially available on iTunes. You can hear it now via Alexander Jean's soundcloud.
