J Minus (Official)

The new album "Memories" now available!

The story of J minus goes back to classical times. While studying the supernatural music of the spheres, the ancients discovered a bizarre musical key somewhat like the cry of a baby zebra. They knew it was powerful and they kept it a secret, referring to it as “J minus.”

Fast-forward to 2002: Songwriter Dylan Fant would occasionally summon the forgotten key in his studio while he sang; the result was awesome and terrifying. Through chance introductions and online ads, he enlisted Trevor Wheetman and Chris Mongillo on vocals and guitar and Myer Harrell on bass to repeat the achievement. For years they toiled in vain but knew their work together - from energized rock to poignant acoustic ballads - was worthwhile in and of itself. The band stumbled upon the J minus legacy and the name became a reminder of their lifelong mission: to move listeners to laughter and tears with music.

Today, J minus is not your typical rock band. They don't party hard or wear tight pants, and share only two tattoos among them (on alternating weekends). Their sound defies direct comparison, aside from hints of radio-friendly rock reminiscent of Death Cab for Cutie, The Samples, and Toad the Wet Sprocket. They are the alternative to "alternative" at a time when indie rock is the status quo. Look for the third full-length album Devil Music in mid-2010. If you find them on stage…the stars might align and you may be the first in years to witness the elusive, mysterious sound of J minus.

Back with track 5! The song "All My Love" is about one of my closest friends and the daughter he has yet to meet in person. It was my tribute to them...with hopes that one day it will help her to understand what he went through not being able to be there for her and how much he missed her.
