Bio

Drawing upon their combined interest in superheroes, alter egos, societal corruption, zombies, regret and retribution, the music of Jetpack spawns a sound of deeply focused rock fury that’s all their own.

This St. Louis-based band has spent the past three years building a presence in the city’s local music scene. After a few member changes, the band has solidified their lineup and are in the works of recording their first full-length album. Having played alongside many up and coming bands, both local and national, as well as having rocked every major venue in St. Louis (such as Pageant, Mississippi Nights, Pop's, and a slot on the St. Louis stop of the 2006 Vans Warped Tour), Jetpack now extends its reach to new cities and venues (including Kansas City, MO, and Iowa City, IA).

Blending complex driving music with haunting and, at times, aggressive vocals, it’s easy to make comparisons to A Perfect Circle, Deftones and Evanescence, but at the same time it’s evident that Jetpack is paving their own way. “We’re just a pure rock-fury band, with numerous influences, yet we're determined to be original and inventive,” states Wenzel. “Individually, we all have so much creativity, which really becomes apparent when we collaborate.”

And it is in those unexpected moments of creativity, where the fires of inspiration kindle. One such example is “Burning Horizon,” described by Stephenson, the former bass player, as a beautiful accident. “It sprung out of a bassline I was fiddling with during a break at a practice.”

“There are many sides to it (our music),” remarks Taylor. “It’s going crazy as a result of being pulled in countless different directions. It's an outcry against society and blind standards. It's coping with everything from fear of the future to failed relationships and showing that we, and everyone, can still be strong and move forward.”

Each song covering different themes: “Drift" is a statement of strength in the face of emotion-numbing pain while “Burning Horizon” tells the story of the forgotten in a post-apocalyptic waste-scape. With powerful and poetic lyrics, Taylor's classical training as an opera singer, evident through her range and technique, as well as her ability to seamlessly transition into dirty, raw tones allow her to capitvate an audience and perfectly complement the already powerful music.

This is a band with something to say. Are you ready for it?
