Indie/Americana/Rock (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
With members from the Midwest and East Coast, quintet Jones Street Station planted its flag in Brooklyn a few years ago and began drawing attention immediately with its unique take on Indie Folk. The band recently scored a full-length indie feature film (Hello Lonesome), but is back to building JSS’ fan base on the road and with a new song, “The Understanding.” The band’s folksy Indie Pop has drawn praise far and wide (from Paste, The New York Times and many others) and the group has landed gigs with everyone from Grace Potter to Manchester Orchestra.

~ "Of all the bands Brooklyn has produced in recent years, rarely has the borough birthed an Americana-rock love child like Jones Street Station. But this isn't just Appalachia-on-the-Hudson — the band is just as fond of rockstar timbres and synths as it is mandolin, banjo licks and harmonica. We're not the first to liken them to a little band called Wilco, and we'd humbly submit the folk/pop stylings of The Avett Brothers and the jamboree ethos of Akron/Family for comparison as well."
