Biography

During every other blue moon that rises upon the music landscape, an unexpected act emerges to challenge the direction the industry has mapped out. In 2007 perhaps that act will be Irelands SAVING J, the Kilkenny-based band that has quietly built up a steady fan base across the country and is one band certainly on the rise!

Having been on the road virtually non-stop throughout Ireland during the tail end of 2005, 2006 and into 2007 the band give Bob Dylan a run for his money with their version of the "Never ending"tour. Attendance to their live shows are consistently growing and the bands prolific song writing output assures the public that there's always something new & fresh to hear at a SAVING J gig!
Formed in late 2005 through an uncanny set of coincidences the band has catapulted onto the Indie scene without hesitation.
The 4 lads are a dedicated hard working bunch of guys who have worked their backsides off to bring music to the people who support them.

As for the bands live shows, they are most certainly not floorboard shufflers and they guarantee to give an energetic 110% performance at every opportunity they get.

Saving J have been nominated by Hot Press to perform at Castle Palooza on 4th August 2007 floowing a nationwide search of unsigned bands.

SAVING J have at an early stage captured audiences in their home county of Kilkenny. In addition, the band regularly tour around Ireland with recent memorable shows in Dublins THE VILLAGE, SUGAR CLUB, EAMON DORANS, THE VOODOO LOUNGE, THE HUB, TRIBECCA as well as WaterfordÂ’s THE FORUM, EnniscorthyÂ’s THE BAILEY, Carlows THE MUSIC FACTORY, Kilkennys CLEERES.

The Voodoo Lounge - Dublin was memorable and to this day the band have vowed never again to perform at that venue wearing blazers and white shoes!

SAVING J recorded their debut single Bus Stop at JAM Studios in Kells Co. Meath with Martin Quinn and have been hitting the airwaves with a bang throughout the Spring and Summer of 2007.

Bus Stop is playlisted on RTE Radio 1, Phantom and has been A listed on all stations in the Southeast such as Beat 102 and other regional radio. Many 2fm jocks have given the single great airplay and it is hoped to be formally playlisted on 2fm in the next weeks.

Saving J have been compared to early REM and Green Day on many occasions but to be honest the band just enjoy what they do best, that is playing music.

The song "Bus Stop"spent several weeks at number 1 in the Beat 102, 103 charts. Bus Stop has been at number 1 in the First Music Contact top picks within the Breaking Tunes site since its release. The video for Bus Stop has been aired regularly on Channel 6 and Citychannel. So it was worth freezing their asses off on Duncannon strand last January I guess.
Saving J have appeared on the cult show Balcony TV.com and have done numerous live radio interviews/ performances to promote their single.

The band have recorded their follow up single for release in late September and they hope to record an album early in 2008.
