Produced by Jim Ebert (Marvelous 3, Meredith Brooks, Cowboy Mouth) at Cue Studios Fall Church, Virginia, Jukebox Serenade's 'Bliss' represents a balance between the group's mainstream pop and it's indie rock sensibilities. Combining a guitar based rock sound with various hip-hop and synth layerings, 'Bliss' embraces past influences from the Beatles to Nirvana while also drawing from more contemporary artists as well. The first single 'Abigail' features Beck-like synth lines, heavy guitar chord progressions, and hand clappin' foot stompin' rhythms making the song both fun and hard rocking at the same time. Some songs such as 'All Alone With You' and 'What He Says' may evoke reminders of popsters Taylor Swift or Kelly Clarkson. The CD opener 'Sugarrush' features an intro of dissonant indie rock guitar riffs over a sugar-coated verse/chorus while 'Crazy Completely" combines a reggae verse with an all-out 80's style pop chorus. 'Turning the Page', a Tori Amos meets PJ Harvey composition, is another standout featuring producer Jim Ebert on piano. Originally formed under the name Ringleader, the songwriting duo Lena Esposito and Chris Brownelle released the EP 'No Slide Guitar' in 2005. In 2006, after enjoying many positive reviews of the EP, they recruited a rhythm section and began playing area shows at such venues as Jammin' Java and IOTA Club and Cafe. In 2007 after forming Get Ringleadermusic Publishing (ASCAP), the duo's songs were incorporated into the libraries of several accredited publishing houses. These company's credits include placements on HBO, MTV, Spike TV, CNN and Discovery Channel. Also in 2007 after releasing a 3-song CD with Ebert, the band solidified it's lineup with Dean Perry on bass and Eddie Anzueto on drums. Both Dean and Eddie have played in numerous previous projects making them both a powerful and creative rhythm section. It was the chemistry of this lineup that led to the recording of 'Bliss' which began in the fall of 2008. In 2009 with a new CD under it's belt, Jukebox Serenade will promote it's new release with live performances throughout the rest of the year.
