ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jets Under Fire began as the solo project of Jason Poe, front man for The Professional Americans. The project began in a fit of creative fury after a job loss in 2002 and progressed slowly over the next three years. The first set of songs, the Dave Bazan-inspired Promises, was written as a linear concept album in 2002, and was recorded in a small storm shelter in Southwest Missouri in 2004. The album was released that same year to a small but loyal fan base. The album soon started to create a local buzz with its ability to emotionally involve listeners, and generate introspection on the ideas of self-righteousness and forgiveness.

The second set of material, The Winter EP, was released in December 2004, causing whispers and rumors to churn in the undercurrent of melodies that could stab straight into the heart. The new set of songs was a piano-based full band sound that was a large leap from the quiet acoustic-based Promises. The songs on The Winter EP ranged from quiet Coldplay-esque songs like The Whitest Light, to more bombastic tunes like All the Sad Songs. Jason gained a new level of respect in the music community after performing all of the instruments, producing, and recording the EP.

In July 2005, Jason's full-time band The Professional Americans relocated to Austin, TX to absorb the opportunities that the area presents. But despite promising label interest, The Professional Americans began to suffer from a lack of solidarity and within a year, the band imploded upon itself. The consequence: the massive national heat wave of 2006 (the correlation between this event and the break-up of the band has yet to be confirmed) and Jets Under Fire burst into a super-heated new universe--a full-blown creative burst that will soon be turning the heads of Austin, TX. Featuring drummer Corbin Peterson (formally of The Professional Americans) and guitar player Eli Southard (formally of semi-national act Fern), Jets Under Fire explores the more arduous aspects of humanity and provides fresh looks at tried-and-true subjects such as love and the nature of wisdom.

Ranging from tender to anthemic, Jets Under Fire sends musical vibes into the air similar to Keane, Travis, and the Verve, while charming influence from bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins, the Beatles, and the Beach Boys. Unflinchingly introspective; penetratingly beautiful. Jets Under Fire is building a fan base built upon quality songwriting and showmanship--and good old-fashioned hard work.

Just Like The Cold Emerald Eyes
This album has been spinning in my player ever since I picked it up after seeing them live in Missouri. Though the album contains many great songs, "Just Like the Cold" and "Emerald Eyes" stay stuck in my head and are put on repeat. I'm excited to see what opens up for this band as word gets out about their music. (Side Note: Buy their other two EPs as well! You won't be disappointed.)
