The JAG / Bio

JAG consists of Aaron Tyler King, Joe Regan and Gant O'Brien. The band is originally based out of Jackson, Mississippi, and presently dwelling in Nashville, Tennessee. It's current drummer is Scott Harper, a California native, also living in Nashville.

King, Regan and O'Brien met in the summer of 2002 in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi, and formed a southern influenced, indie-rock band shortly thereafter. The original band name, along with its line-up, took many different forms as members came and went, as well as countless songs. After several years of this, the three core members grew tired of routine changes and decided to relocate and start from scratch, with a sudden and very personal crossover to soulful, psychedelic, southern rock 'n' roll, with a heavy retro influence.

In the heat of summer, 2011, they picked up their dirty, southern roots and traveled seven hours north to Nashville, Tennessee, to become contributing members of the town's thriving rock 'n' roll community. They were accompanied by Brannon Barnett, who would leave his stamp on the new band, being featured in a few recordings on guitar. Scott Harper (drums) was recruited as well, a few months after the move. Within a few more months the band had written several songs, six of which were recorded live at The Bomb Shelter studio in East Nashville.

JAG's debut album, "Mississippi Acid Pine Highway Tour", was released in September, 2012. The album boldly showcases the bands ability to infuse soulful, southern vocal styles and melodies, with ballsy, sometimes psychedelic guitar sounds. When listened to loudly, the album effortlessly embodies the band's live sound, with a raw edge followed by a tight feel.
