It’s a black Friday disco ball celebration for a bet fulfilled…A culmination of Elle Crash and Nick Barrows’ wager to mix their respective perspectives of rock and dance…Join Nick Barrows, Elle Crash and Dave Welsh as JetLab on November 28th at the Southgate House Revival as they launch their debut album “JetLab”. The event is being held in the lounge, admission is free, and JetLab will have copies of their CD’s, T-shirts and homemade DIY limited edition resin buttons available for your purchasing pleasure.
Blasting up from the cityscape of Cincinnati, OH is 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 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 the jaded to move their feet once again...they started with an old-school rock sound that's influenced by David Bowie, Pink Floyd and the Stones, and mixed in 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 mix their respective perspectives of rock and dance into something new.
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, Frog Man) to join them in the basement lab to experiment with the base sound.
They've emerged and are proud to launch their debut album which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike Montgomery (R.Ring/Ampline/Thistle) at Candyland Studios.
