Biography

http://whoisyoungjesus.com/
Hello, you turkeys. We are Young Jesus. We are Cody Kellogg (lead guitar), Peter Martin (drums), Shawn Nystrand (bass), and John Rossiter (guitar/vox). We can combine into one big, multi-limbed transformer type thing, but that’s with a lot of duct tape and roughhousing. Though we love to roughhouse and jangle around, we love playing rock music more. We have self-released two EPs (Late Night Standards and Young, Innocent, and Hairy). We have a debut LP recorded and on the way. We hope our rock music is a reflection of some of the darkness that makes happiness so profound. We’ve withstood collapsed lungs, seizures, exploded tires, chronic constipation (amongst other things). But we love what we do and are unbelievably grateful for the chance to play our music. That is just as much a part of us as any darkness.

Influenced by The National, Alkaline Trio, Arcade Fire, The Hold Steady, Brand New, and Titus Andronicus (to name a few), Young Jesus is more than just four bright-eyed young dudes. It is a group of amazing family, friends, and fans that keep us writing and going crazy at our shows. So we hope you wanna join us, maybe roughhouse a ‘lil bit, and sing with us at our next show.

    this band needs so many more scrobbles, so many more fans, and so many more shows. Home is such a brilliant album. and the EPs are pretty solid themselves. theyd fit pretty nicely next to Brand New at this year's Boston Calling obviously they won't be playing it. Come back!

    Great work. Love John's voice... kind of reminds me of Jim Morrison or Ian Curtis.
