Album Notes
Jounce formed in the small, suburban town of Wyckoff, NJ, technically 17 miles from Manhattan but really light years away. There, four childhood friends spent their days jamming in basements, parties and local bars, or wherever people would listen.

Upon release from college in Spring of 2004, Jounce relocated to a somewhat secluded property bordered by the Holyoke State Forest in Amherst, MA. They converted an old shed (it was a big shed) to serve as their rehearsal space and traveled extensively, playing hundreds of shows and sharing bills with influences like the Benevento Russo Duo, The Flaming Lips, ulu and the Slip. After several years, the band returned home to the New York area where they eventually landed in Manhattan's Lower East Side.

In April of 2006, Syracuse University was the place where they would lay down the foundation for a new album with keyboardist Adam Gold. Working with longtime friend and soundman Marco Centola, the band turned out eight tracks that would then be mixed back in New York by Centola and mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Alan Silverman (The Kinks, Cheap Trick, Norah Jones).

The self-titled album was released on June 29th, 2006, followed by an east coast tour and New York shows at BB Kings, The Mercury Lounge and Mexicali Blues. The opening song "You Tell Me" garnered 3rd place in Relix Magazine's Winter 2006 Jamoff Competition out of over 500 submissions.

2007 finds the band continuing to tour and write new music.

"By 11:15, when Jounce made their way to the performance floor, Plan B was so packed that they barely had room for their amps and pedals. With the aid of the events staff, they got the room they needed, warmed up, and following a moving intro by Alex, they began playing one of the most up-close-and-personal sets of there young yet experienced careers. They careened in and out of funked up jam sessions and memorable rock riffs to elevate the already amped crowd to an all-new high. At this point I was working the door and watched as previously unaware passer-bys got sucked in and gladly donated 5-bucks to rock out with Jounce and NYCUG!"

"Jounce shows are a full-body experience, felt as easily as they are heard. Songs spanning 15-plus minutes pump the band's groove-infused blend of beat-heavy rock and electric soul and funk into a bouncing crowd."
-The Bergen Record

"Jounce are a mixture of blues, funk and rock that can only be described as 'chill' and full of soul."
-East Coast Rocker

"They could be labeled as simply a jam-band but have enough rock influences to distinguish them from most tripped out fluff."
-Mount Holyoke News

"Their non-stop playing and whirlwind tour has made Jounce's instrumentation tighter than ever. The musicians communicate with their eyes; a nod of the head, the smallest smile. They know each other."
-Twin Boro News

"Jounce, who blew the place up - on New Year's Eve."
- on the band's 2003 NYE performance at Mexicali Blues with ulu

Toured throughout NY, NJ, CT, VT, MA, ME, PA, MD, VA, NC, SC, GA, & TN and appeared at venues including The Knitting Factory, The Mercury Lounge & BB Kings (New York), The World Cafe Live & North Star (Philadelphia), Harper's Ferry (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington), The Brandyhouse (Atlanta) and The Pour House (Charleston).

Well done
Dude, loved the vibe of the CD. Came at the right time too, I'm always looking for new music to consume. Badu is my favorite track, prolly cause I'm hooked on the Ramapo Valley demo's(esp. the segway into Sleuth) But of the new tracks I really like Orange Alphabet. Now come out west.


Dude, Little Pete is in a fucking band... Crazy! That show was awesome btw dude. You guys should get Artie to tour with you and play the tamberine or some shit... anyway, ROCK ON PETE!

But in all seriousness, you guys are great.



Make sure to keep Petunia shakin' it, use plenty of KrebStar deodorant, and get plenty of riboflavin, my little viking!


I love Jounce
Now, i know they arent the best to everyone, but i realy liked them, and i would have given them a 5star rating, but i always say "everything can always get better", so 4 is deffinatley the best rating i could have given, my faveorite song is number 3 on the CD, called hypoglycemic, and i hope there will be more of their CD's to come.

Killer CD
Killer CD guys, I wish it could've been a little longer, though. For everyone considering a purchase of this CD, go for it. It is an amazing album.
