Between The Jars… that is where this young band composes its music. In 2014, five musicians from Utrecht turned the attic of a drinks wholesaler into their own studio to create a distinctive sound, inspired by the musical legacy of the 70s. With a unique voice, psychedelic keys, and shredding riffs, the music approaches classic rock with a fresh perspective. Soon after Between The Jars was founded, the band won three local band competitions, qualified for the Utrecht Popprijs, and shared the stage with artists including Orange Skyline, BADE, The Indien, and John Coffey. With more than 100 gigs throughout the Netherlands on stages including Paradiso and De Melkweg and a live performance of the single ‘One Of Them’ on radio station 3FM, Between The Jars is building a serious reputation.
In February, 2018, after a long time of writing and experimenting with different sounds, the band recorded two singles together with producer Juan van Emmerloot (Snowy White, Popa Chubby, and Steve Lukather (Toto)) and signed a contract with record label TheRoomRecordings. The singles ‘Annie Green’ and ‘Long Halloween’ were released in May and June, 2018, after which Between The Jars made their international debut by touring through France. There, the band played for at least 3,000 visitors at the Class’EuRock festival in Aix-En- Provence. Following the success in France, the band went on to tour in India in December and January of the same year, playing at the Mood Indigo Festival. Simultaneously, the band is working on a second EP scheduled for release in 2019.
