Deconstructing Jim

BandRockAlternative

Thunderous rhythm section, dual lead vocal harmonies, and intricately written songs. Three pieces of cross-country hell-raising!

Biography

Deconstructing Jim is Brennen Chouinard (drums), Jeff Julian (voc/guitar), and Matt Yeager (voc/bass) all of whom hail from southwestern Chicagoland. The three-piece band tours as often as their day jobs allow them. That’s where they’ve honed their live shows, which are punctuated by a thunderous rhythm section, dual lead vocal harmonies, and intricately written songs.

The band has many influences—Ron Sexsmith, The Beatles, Houston, Jawbox, Queens of the Stone Age, and Muse—just to name a few. But what drives Deconstructing Jim is a love of cold beer, new towns, and dirty rock venues.
