The Jeers

The Jeers


The Jeers are a high-energy original rock and roll band. Our music responds and contributes to the world. We’re inspired by the urgency behind punk, folk and hip-hop. We aim for a big sound and catchy melodies: music is our craft and performance is our contribution.


The Jeers formed in Ottawa in 2010 out of an association between comrades old and new. We draw on our experiences performing and recording in a large variety of genres and settings. The Jeers emerges from a return to our earliest engagements with music - the need to let loose. Our songs are snapshots crafted around evocative lyrics and careful attention to arrangement, melody and 'the hook'.
