about

Blasting up from the cityscape of Cincinnati, OH are JetLab, an American 3-piece band, fronted by songwriters Elle Crash and Nick Barrows, with drummer Dave Welsh. Grounded in the tradition of groups with multiple singers and writers, JetLab offers a wild two-sided perspective that merges rock and soul with dance and electronica, wrapping heart-hitting bass in loops of keyboards with acoustic and electric guitar with just a ghostly hint of hip-hop. With the goal of luring even shoe-gaze types to surrender control of their feet and dance, they start with a old-school rock sound that's influenced by David Bowie, Pink Floyd and the Stones, mixed with the influence of Foster the People, The Cars, LCD Sound System, Big Audio Dynamite, Gang of Four and the Talking Heads

The band formed in 2013, based on a bet between Elle and Nick to see if they could create something that would marry the mix of rock and dance that would entice the Cincinnati scene to lose control and dance again. They've emerged with their debut album recorded and mastered at Candyland with Mike Montgomery (Ampline)

Drawing from their long-term pedigree of acclaimed performances in Cincinnati and beyond, and their experience of collectively opening up for Heartless Bastards, Mates of State, Happy Chichester, Dressy Bessy, The Bound Stems, Shag and Jenny Lewis and more, Elle Crash (Lovely Crash, The Fairmount Girls) and Nick Barrows (4 Track Allstars, Eagle to Squirrel, Jack Burton Overdrive) convinced drummer Dave Welsh (Jack Burton Overdrive, FrogMan) to join them in the basement lab to experiment with the base sound.
