about me
It is the dawn of an age of digital wizardry and in this modern era gadgets seem to surge in song, congealing in an amalgamation of buzzes, beeps and blips. The pulsing of machines and pounding of concrete and steel in symphonic collage power our world. J.Wail rises to the call of the sonic traffic controller, poised behind a palette of electronic devices with Telecaster, booming bass and live drums. The dance floor becomes the launch pad where the trio fuses live instrumentation with organic electronica propelling mind, soul and booty into the upper stratosphere of sound. In the resonance of music and technology, they meld the sounds of tomorrow with the power of now into a bumping, party anthem for modern mankind. Stretching into the DJ-based dance sound with the approach of a live band J Wail creates "club-funk-rock" through innovative techniques using live guitar, bass, vocals, synthesizers, and live electronics. The ability to experiment and improvise nightly has led to several appearances and collaborations with some prominent musicians including jams with Michael Travis and Jason Hann (EOTO/String Cheese Incident), Dean Ween (Ween), Brock Butler (Perpetual Groove), Ekoostik Hookah, Tom Constanten (Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, ex member of the Grateful Dead), Clay Parnell (Brothers Past/Biodiesel) and members of the Brazilian Girls. J Wail has performed on bills with national artists such as Bassnectar, Particle, Perpetual Groove, Ana Sia, Toubab Krewe, Boombox and DJ Le Spam & the Spam Allstars. The band's unique styles and techniques infuse the audience with a taste of something completely new and fresh.
