Biography

"Some where between the rehearsal space, the stage, and the studio LifeInJersey invaded my life and converted me into a rabid follower. I’m not really certain if it was the kung fu death grip these guys have on delivering a crushingly beautiful song or perhaps just all that charm. You cannot possibly be around them and have a bad time. I couldn’t have predicted working with a more solid band. They work harder then 95% of bands out there and it shows in their studio work and their live show. Between Carson’s poetic, yet aggressive vocals, countering guitar work, meticulous bass lines, and crushing drum beats, you’ll soon find yourself enveloped into something you haven’t quite heard before. A breath of fresh air amongst the stale gloom of the current rock n roll scene." -Producer/Engineer J. Hall

LifeInJersey have established themselves as the dominant force in the Kansas City music scene, and the numbers speak for themselves. After releasing the 5-song EP "Skeletons" in May of 2007, the band was selected to compete against five other bands for a spot next to the Used, Shiny Toy Guns, and Plain White T's at the annual Buzz Beach Ball sponsored by 96.5 The Buzz, and in a contest determined by listener voting, LifeInJersey won...... by 18,000 votes.

Since forming in 2006, LifeInJersey has already shared the stage with numerous national acts such as The Used, Story of the Year, Anberlin, Plain White T's, Perry Farrell's Satellite Party, Flobots, A Change of Pace, The Hush Shound, Armor For Sleep, Forever the Sickest Kids, Showbread and Never Shout Never to name a few. The band was also featured as one ofthe top 20 finalists (out of 2,000 + entrants) for Fuse TV's"getmeloaded" contest, and are consistantly featured as live guests on Kansas City's 96.5 the Buzz.

In the winter of 2008, LifeInJersey joined producer J. Hall again, this time for their debut full-length "Plotted Points", a matured and refreshing mix of 12 tracks ranging from hard-hitting rock, to spacious, ethereal interludes, to the more stripped down and acoustic-driven. LifeInJersey is set to release their opus August 1st, and have started taking their music to local, regional, and national markets without looking back.
