About Jet Black Alley Cat:
We listen to music to ultimately feel something, finding meaning in the rapt pockets of meter that allow us to transcend into a sound tracked world where we close our minds and let the entirety of the rhythm affect us. The distinct, dark-retro sound of Jet Black Alley Cat connects to listeners, speaking to their hookups, breakups and blues, all the while, creating a space where they can momentarily be at one with their woes. Upon meeting in Nashville, the band, Joe Wilkinson (Belvidere, TN), Christian Harrison (Little Rock, AR), Zach Douglas (Kingsport, TN), Cristofer Johnson (Birmingham, AL), and Bryant Lowry (Evansville, IN) started writing music. After their first hit release, Poison, the band built their image on the cinematic, dark-electric flare the song emits. The morose and aggressive tone to the band’s music fuses vintage bluesy vibes with groovy pop-rock beats to create a sound yet to be heard on popular radio.

Since 2014, the band has released four singles, Poison, Memphis Blues, Electric Raazors and Roxy, with one more to release in spring of 2016. The much-anticipated Roxy video will hit fans mid- March and tour dates for the year ahead are in the works.

The band has taken their G R O O V E persona on stages all around Nashville, playing at Cannery Ballroom for Frank Iero and Taking Back Sunday, We The Kings, Dangerous Summer, and Exit In with The Rocket Summer. JBAC headlined at 12th and Porter for MTV’s Music City Breakthrough, Lightening 100’s On Tap Showcase, 2014 Warped Tour, and in late summer 2015, toured the east coast with Rookie of the Year. The band has aired on Nashville’s local Lightning 100, MTV, MTVU and MTV Latin America, with Electric Raazors featured on MTV and at the retail chain, Journey’s.

At the end of the day, the band revels in making music that sets their audience wild with groove, nostalgic for the past while falling in love with a present feeling. That’s the dream for JBAC: to make one-of-a-kind music so organic and transparent that fans can relate and grow with. “Everyone wants to play rock,” the band admits. “We want to be the ones fans never forget.”
