The perfect concoction of Wilco's simplicity with the craft and ingenue of Tom Waits, married to that long cool woman in a black dress, Johnnie Lee Jordan and the Boys have perfected their art over five years of friendship shared through instrumentation and musical collaboration.

Biography

Johnnie Lee Jordan and the Boys are native New Yorkers and gifted musicians who have performed in various acts while touring the States and adding to their repertoire of musical capabilities. Prolific songwriters, JLJ and the Boys have laid low from the limelight for the past year, working on a complete album of material to be released in late 2013, fittingly titled, "Run." Lilting, lovely, loud, visceral and raw, this is gun-slinging poetry that gets to the art at the heart of hte matter, plucks the pain, strings it along and twangs it high. Old school beats for a Beat-up generation- even when it's painful you can- and will- dance to it. Johnnie Lee Jordan and the Boys are all these things but mostly, as they say: "We're a Rock 'n' Roll band from New York City."
