3. to come, as if by chance
In this sense (of hoping, evolving, accepting) we are all "falling". And it is for these reasons that Jet Black Sunrise has written their debut LP, aptly titled Falling. The release marks the culmination of a year and half of writing, arranging, recording and mastering. It also marks the beginning of the next chapter for the band. After releasing the album's first single and title track, the group has begun planning for a broader list of regional shows, a push for national coverage of the debut album and most importantly, a strong sense of momentum and ambition.
Matt Cronin, Nick Fede, Jay Schneider, Matt Smith and JC Zwisler make up Boston-based Rock/Indie Pop act Jet Black Sunrise. Their music has been referred to as everything from alternative acoustic rock (read "90s") to experimental indie pop. With three songwriters in the group, and every member of the band contributing artistically, this eclectic experience comes as no surprise. Their enthusiasm and passion will become clear after only one listen or one visit to a show. Local press has commented that, "Despite [often] limited space, Jet Black Sunrise still connects with the crowd through their chemistry and talent."
Above all JBS is excited to share their music with new fans across New England (and the rest of the country) with the hope that they, too, will choose to take a leap, without fear of "falling".
