The best kept secret in music



"Jerel... mix the sublime, introspective, acoustic rock with a few hot flashes of harder stuff. They've got a wide world view with chilling effect, something new altogether." - South by Southwest Music Festival


"A comelling four piece from the overcast environs of the Pacific Northwest. Put these guys in a room with a skilled producer and wonders will happen."
- Music Connection Magazine

"Murky Water Mishap"

"...they deliver affable, genre-defying music that crackles with swampy, backwoods ambiance...they certainly wouldn't be out of place at a dank French Quarter saloon..." - Splenid Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Jerel reviewed by Filter Magazine! The Space Needle. Grunge. Rain. Ken Griffey's glory years. When you think of Seattle, you most likely think of the afformentioned, and more. Well kids, you can now add one more beautiful thing to that list, and that thing is the fabulous foursome known as Jerel. With the release of their new studio album, The Rubicon, on July 29th, Jerel has made it look easy to craft a finely-tuned, alluring rock album. The diversity on this album is what makes it so captivating, and it's what lead singer Clayton "Crazy Eyes" Ballard succeeds at by singing with a fantastic vocal range, while brother and guitarist Lance rips ups amazing guitar riffs, leaving the listener wanting more. Bassist Clint Belau and drummer Tacket Brown top the record off in perfect fashion with their own brand of musical know-how. Standout tracks such as "Spade", "Cracker Jack Bay", "Prey", "Freedom Fades", and "Tears Of Change" will make the average listener an instantly-hooked fan, and you may find yourself on the next flight to the dark Northwest looking to get your Jerel fix.
