Adam Safer and Steve Caglianone are the hardcore rock duo JeWop. Their music combines bass, drums, and vocals to create a full and aggressive sound. Originally a native of Savannah, Georgia is bassist/vocalist Adam Safer. His style is complex and impressive, as he is capable of a variety of techniques. At times, his distorted bass actually sounds like both guitar and bass at once. Safer, a former student of bassist Beaver Felton, cites a diverse group of influences - ranging from Slayer to Jaco Pastorius. This is evident in his speedy, riffing solos. Safer's vocal style is somewhat reminiscent of Henry Rollins and his nonsensical, tongue-in-cheek, and sometimes disturbing, lyrics are delivered with an enormously candid intensity. The drumming of Steve Caglianone is equally powerful and complex. He cites John Bonham and Steve Perkins as major influences on his playing style. Originally from New York City, Caglianone studied with Bobby Rondinelli (from Warlock, Rainbow, and Black Sabbath). Caglianone has also successfully gigged in the NYC area for several years with various bands (ie. Roadside Prophet and SuperGenius). The result of the Safer/Caglianone combination is a sound that is uniquely full - an unexpected sound for a two-man band. The music of JeWop is in-your-face and over-the-top.
