When brothers Matt and Josh Gilbert and cousin Ben Phillips shared their stories of family and life hardships they decided to turn those tales into some original music.
So begins the story of Jettison Never. Formed in Chattanooga in 1998, its music features honest lyrics; tight, harmonic and vocally driven melodies; and personal chemistry producing a sound you will never forget! From the opening chords to the last note, the natural ability and years of hard work that has gone into the music is very evident.
Jettison Never can be classified as "alt/rock", a ‘soaring’ and ‘celestial’ movement of melodic indie rock ‘n roll, hinting at a sound influenced by alternative bands in the vein of Mute Math, Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Muse and The Killers; as well as many references to U2 & The Police.
Now mustering an ambitious goal to build a national fan base, the band spends nine months of the year performing at hundreds of venues across the United States. They have shared the stage with many acts including the likes of Mute Math, Bowling For Soup, Cool Hand Luke, and Pillar; and showcased at events such as Forecastle Festival ‘09 (KY), Voxtropolis – yearly (National and International Locations), NACA ’09 and Chattanooga’s own Riverbend Festival both in ’07 and ‘09. During their 2009-2010 tour, Jettison Never performed over 200 shows in 44 states in over 70 cities.
With a debut full-length release (THEY FALL FROM HEAVEN UNASSEMBLED ©2007) and eight national tours under their belt, Jettison Never continues to maintain an increasing, independent national following. That fan base will further develop in 2011-- with the follow up release of WAITING FOR APPARITIONS ©2011 and ambitious touring schedule in order to return to those same cities and fans to support.
