Alright, music lovers, today’s featured artist makes their home in the British Columbia city of Vancouver. Formed in 2020 amidst the rise of the pandemic, the founding members of Jericho Blue spent the better part of the year searching for a lead singer. None of the cogs seemed to fit, though, until a discovery was made on YouTube that was close to home. It seemed that guitarist Preston’s then girlfriend, now wife Toni, posted a video of her singing, and to their surprise, that was the ticket. The rest is, as they say, history.
Now, this has a familiar story. Three friends put in their lots to set out on a musical journey. Their hearts set on creating a path that would be a road that would bring a feeling of joy and freedom. Like so many have forged in the past, Jericho Blue hopes to reach the hearts and spirits of the listener and make a lasting impression on the world. Their blend of rock calls to mind bands like Bryan Adams, John Mellencamp, The Rolling Stones, and Bon Jovi. The vocals delivered by Toni shine in the style of the late great Dolores O’ Riordan of The Cranberries , Avril Lavigne, and Carrie Underwood.
Jericho Blue brings a fresh spin on a classic feel, injecting some much needed energy and drive to the rock scene. With their debut full album slated to drop in 2024, the anticipation grows exponentially for the trio. So, music lovers keep a sharp eye out for this band and their upcoming full-length album.
Song Review – Rolling Waves
By Squiggly Meyers
Raise your hands high music lovers. This song is a runaway hit! An obvious crowd pleaser, Rolling Waves kicks off with driving guitar, which is then joined by the explosive drums of drummer Andrew. Then the double tracked vocals of Toni enter, giving the instrumental new life. Done in the style of early alternative giants of the nineties such as Third Eye Blind, The Cranberries, and Spin Doctors, Rolling Waves delivers the driving rock with the feathery touch of Toni’s vocals, which deliver a deep emotional sonata. Then, the dynamic change to a double time accelerates the pulse to the end. The guitar work is superb in its multi layered approach. With its choral-like parts blended in to present the final piece. In short, this is a band to be reckoned with, a super nova in the making.
