Paisty Jenny / Bio

Paisty Jenny gives modern rock an arena-style bite. Deep, rich guitar tones and dynamic vocals full of attitude drive the heartbeat of the Paisty Jenny vibe. Shinedown, Hinder and Seether are familiar comparisons.

The first single "ANYTHING" from the band’s 4th release “Head in a Haze” was added on numerous Midwest radio stations upon initial release, and a supporting video for was produced by Jody Hansen and Robby Defrain, both being award winning film producers.

ANYTHING continued to gain momentum via an 8-week national radio campaign that completed on March 1, 2012. A bonus-version of the ANYTHING produced by Beau Hill (founding owner Interscope Records, RATT, Warrant, Stevie Nicks) was included in the campaign, which was managed by Bryan Farrish Radio.

The song entered the FMQB Adult Contemporary Chart at #3 for most station adds, second to Nickelback, and at 199th for total plays. At the end of the campaign, the song had proved its viability, rising to #90 in the nation for the number of spins, with exposure to over 150,000 listeners in its last week alone. We continue to monitor this chart as the song continues to climb.

“Head in a Haze” producer Michael Beck’s clients include members of Marilyn Manson, Kill Hannah, Chimara, Black Dahlia Murder, Badlands, Soilwork, Knights of the Abyss, Ke$ha, and Daath. “Head in a Haze” was mastered by Brad Vance (All That Remains, Plain White T's) at Red Mastering in Newbury Park, CA.

Two tracks from the new release were distributed on an MB Agency sampler CD at the 2012 Grammy’s. Paisty Jenny also appeared in Revolver, BAM and AP Magazines and found themselves on two Los Angeles area billboards in 2011. The band will be touring the Midwest extensively in 2012 with plans to visit both coasts.

In 2011 the band shared stages with such notables as Saving Abel, My Darkest Days, Kid Rock, Red Line Chemistry, Eve to Adam, Candlelite Red, Jackyl and Burn Halo. Past years have included multiple performances with bands like CAVO, Brett Michaels, Vince Neil, and Skid Row, making Paisty Jenny an established, high-energy, adrenalin-filled rock show.

According to Derrick Miller at Hardrock Haven, “Paisty Jenny is a band we firmly believe needs to be heard. Paisty Jenny is a stage machine."

Paisty Jenny’s (PJ) debut EP “DETOURS” was released September 2004 and the first 1,000 copies SOLD OUT astonishingly fast. Next up, "DETOURS-RED", completed the full-length package with 3 additional tracks and two videos. One track, "Monday Monday" was produced at the request of CBS television and bangs out a salute to the Mommas and Papas 1967 original. The disc contains the show-stopper "Primadonna" while the video features the popular adult internet star Melissa Midwest.

The band released their third work “SPILLING MERCURY” in March of 2009, a 16-song CD featured the anthem “Bigger Man”, a tribute to those lost in the Von Maur shootings that took place in Omaha in December 2007.

Early in their career, Paisty Jenny was selected among 300 regional bands to play the second to last slot on the main stage at the Arrowhead Fan Fest, in Kansas City, MO in September of 2004, and a poll on the WB Network website in Des Moines, IA voted Paisty Jenny as the favorite band at the Waterstock Rock Festival with 38% of the vote in 2004.
