The band's story is the definition of commitment: eight years spent honing it's sound while building to the release of it's first national album. The blend of sonic exuberance and personal maturity is just one of the things that makes the Eli Young Band and their Universal Republic/Universal Records South debut, JET BLACK & JEALOUS, such an intriguing musical masterpiece. The band combined a range of elements-vocalist Mike Eli's ingratiating resonance, guitarist James Young's elastic bag of sounds, bass player Jon Jones' inventive foundation and drummer Chris Thompson's energetic propulsion-to create a 12-song CD that paints even the difficult turns in life with an underlying optimism.
