Jonas Sees in Color / Bio

Great music isn't about perfection and cleanliness, it's about emotion and desire; that's what makes a great record. Using this mindset, Jonas Sees in Color (Greensboro, NC) headed into the studio to record their sophomore album, GIVE ME MINE. Recorded on 2-inch reel-to-reel tape, the band pushed themselves to their limits for that one great take. GIVE ME MINE is a collection of honest, dirty, pretty and weird stories, “just the way we like it” says singer Ryan Downing. Highlights include the album’s lead single “Give Me Mine” (hitting digital retailers on April 6th), the rowdy rocker “Dirty Little Sunshine” and the haunting “Harvest” saga. “We stretched our brains and emptied our hearts to write these songs and you can feel that in the music” adds Downing.

Their relentless touring schedule over the past six years have started paying off too. In January of 2013, the band was flown out to Los Angeles to participate in Ernie Ball’s annual Battle of the Bands competition. The band has also landed a stint on this year’s installment of the Vans Warped Tour.

Music isn’t the band’s only passion though; the band has been known to bend over backwards for their fans. Whether it be making masks to give out before a show, mailing out free stickers or inviting fans to be in their music videos, JONAS SEES IN COLOR prides themselves in the relationship they share with their fans.

The name JONAS SEES IN COLOR comes from acclaimed novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry. The book tells the story of a boy named Jonas who lives in an emotionless, colorless utopian society. In this black-and-white world, Jonas is chosen to endure the burden of the dreams, hopes, and thoughts of his entire village. As he connects with these memories, he begins to see color for the very first time. Downing adds “Our hope is that the listener will unite with the song and see the colors inside it, keeping the song as a memory of their own.”

JONAS SEES IN COLOR’s self-released sophomore album, GIVE ME MINE will be released on April 16th.
