JEFFERSON ROSE BAND with JELLY BREAD and Far Out West
Sun, Apr 23, 2017, 7:30 PM – Mon, Apr 24, 2017, 1:30 AM PDT
Listeners who enjoyed the first album, Seismic, will love the addition of singer Alex Kitchen, whose wild and potent voice adds another layer to the complex and dance-worthy rhythms. Singing in English and Spanish and a sincere approach to each note, Kitchen transports the listener to places that are at once familiar and exotic. Her powerful, heartfelt vocal style draws influences from R&B, neo-soul and Latin music.
JRB has played Bumbershoot, Folklife, Everett Music in the Parks, Anacortes Arts Festival, Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, The Tractor, Nectar, The Royal Room and many more.
Jelly Bread has been delving into more extensive touring this past year. This past year, Jelly Bread has been tapped to perform opening duties for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and performed on a bill featuring Bruce Hornsby and Railroad Earth. The band has appeared at premiere festivals to include Joshua Tree, Strawberry and High Sierra Music Festivals.
Over the course of the 2013 summer, in between touring, Jelly Bread spent time recording at Imirage Sound Lab with Tom Gordon who has worked with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Collective Soul, Dr. Dre, Boyz II Men, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, among many others. After months of dedication, the band emerged with a their latest EP titled “Lessons Learned”.
The EP, which includes the head-nodding, signature energetic funk and rock soul listeners have come to expect from Jelly Bread, maintains the honest storytelling of the more Americana influences Jelly Bread has been rooted in since its inception.
