Bio

What happens when you blend a normally well-adjusted, fairly happy individual with one who is unhappy and miserable most of the time?

No…not the relationship you had with your ex (although, you’re probably right).

You get true, unbridled emotions channeled through music and words that will haunt you with every note.

My Name is Jealousy is just that combination, with Kevin (Music) playing the role of the fairly well adjusted one (although, Scott does take some issue with that claim), and Scott (Words) being the one who’s probably needing to get an increase in his medication sometime soon.

“I like to think we’re doing something a little different,” says Kevin. “This isn’t a typical band. I love to play music but haven’t had time for the commitment and egos of a band. So I started writing and recording music on the computer, playing guitar and bass, and setting it to drum loops. After enlisting the help of Scott with lyrics and vocals, I was a little surprised with how well the do-it-yourself approach turned out.”

“I write what I feel,” says Scott. “I write what I think—heck, what I think most people think. It’s just, well, most of them don’t have the guts to say it. Not only do I say it, but I put it out there for the whole world to hear. If they like it, great. If they don’t agree, fine.”

Of course, both hope that the majority of peopledo like it.

“Someone once said that people don’t make music or form bands to stay out of the spotlight—the second you share your works with them it becomes a public thing, not just a form of artistic expression,” says Scott.

Kevin adds, “We just hope that people can enjoy what we’ve created—that, whether it’s the music, the words, the overall feel—that they can take something away from what we’ve written.”

And, with anger-laden songs such as “Where’s the Drama?” to more introspective songs like “20mg,” My Name is Jealousy definitely seems to offer up a range of feelings for all areas of the spectrum.
