Biography

For the men that make up the multi-Grammy Award Winning and Multi-Platinum selling Jars of Clay, the last two years have tested their perceptions, challenged their beliefs, and underscored their experiences to help them craft and share their vision of "The Shelter". It’s never easy to change how you do what you do, especially after a decade and a half and a fair amount of success and acclaim. But tapping into new wells of creativity has long been a hallmark of Jars of Clay’s career, and letting go the reins and letting in a trusted community of talented people to help share their vision has generated one of the richest projects in the band’s long history. What emerges on "The Shelter" is more of Jars of Clay’s signature sonics, informed by the season of their last project, "The Long Fall Back To Earth," but echoing all the way back to its much-heralded self-titled debut, meshed with a heretofore underexplored inclusiveness of lyric that encourages the listener to join in the song. It’s a community that Jars of Clay has worked hard to build and engage with, and one that covers, comforts, strengthens, nourishes and emboldens...like any good shelter should do.
