Hailing from Miami, JUke is a new breed of blues-band fronted by a modern day bluesman. It is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/harmonica whiz, Eric Garcia, who was dissatisfied with most dated, non-threatening traditional blues. Eric felt the need to bring the angst and power back into the type of music that seemed to lose some of it's relevance and impact.
Teaming up with guitar phenom and singer, Evan Lamb, was the catapult that made JUke go and realize Eric's vision.
The addition of powerhouse drummer, Brian Lange, and the endless grooves from bassist, Taylor Byrd, have completed the unique hybrid that has become JUke.
JUke'ʹs first album, " Lungbutter‑the Blues Basement Tapes", is available on iTunes.
The recording of their sophomore album, " Down Low Cool", is out now!. , JUke's in-your-face live shows and stories of love, loss and pain make 2012 a breakout year for Miami's favorite little dirty blues band!
