the Trainjumpers / Bio

The Trainjumpers have been fine purveyers of original roots rock and roll music in the Ohio Valley since the band's 2007 debut recording "Deadtown" hit the streets.

That album received 4.5 stars out of 5 from Graffiti Magazine, which heralded the band as one of the Mountain State's brightest up-and-comers. The single "Deadtown" went on to be included as the no. 42 single on WEGW's end-of-year "Top 75 songs of 2007" chart.

Early this year, the band released its second album, "Bring On The Trainjumpers," also to critical success. Steubenville Herald-Star music editor Mark Miller said the band's soul-swinging rhythm section was a throwback to an early 1970s rock heydey. Miller added that "Bring On" counted among the best local recordings ever to come across his desk. Pittsburgh City Paper music columnist Aaron Jentzen echoed Miller's praise. Jentzen compared the Trainjumpers to Beast of Burden-era Rolling Stones and early Dire Straits.

The Trainjumpers will release their third album Wide-Eyed tragic Myth in March of 2011.
