Biography

Originally salvaged from the ashes of the much loved Spokaine by co-founders Andrew Powell and Grant Ferstat mid-2002, the Jayco Brothers alt-country, orchestral, Telecaster-driven, sonic bar-room pop notched up a WAM Song of the Year award 12 months later for the song "Asbestos Fibro".

The debut EP, "Asbestos Fibro" (released in October 05 on Treadmill Records/MGM) received rave reviews across the country and overseas. Drum Media's Ross Clelland called it "eminently tasteful... (The Jayco Brothers) arch and weep like country purists, but then add some sonic or pop twists to set it apart". Grok Magazine crowned it the "local release of the year". Seminal Americana on-line store, Miles of Music.com in the USA, thought so much of it they gave it their "It's A Cracker!" mark of approval and guarantee.

The Jayco Brothers are currently in the studio recording an acoustic-ish EP for German label JellyFant Records sleighted for European release this year.

Following the completion of the EP the band will put the finishing touches on their debut full-length album that was recorded in Nashville last year featuring the drums and production talents of Ken Coomer (Wilco/Uncle Tupelo ).
