    Riot - Jam Alker
The JAB frontman Jam Alker was showcasing his punk-blues aesthetic for major labels on the Chicago club circuit just a handful of years ago.
With the world at his fingertips, he swapped his guitar for the needle and disappeared for nearly a decade. In 2014, the birth of his daughter finally flipped the life or death switch and he began treatment. An arduous journey of detox and song-writing therapy laid the foundation for his debut LP, CONSUME.
Tom Stukel, Terry Byrne, Ryan Herrick, and Alex Piazza—all seasoned, dynamic players—collaborate with Jam on blue-collar thinking-man’s music, delivered with grit and transparency. The result is the bluesy, post-classic rock, modern sludge rock record CONSUME. With bite-sized versions of Led Zeppelin’s monstrously thick-grooved riffs, the sensibilities of a Black Keys album, and an often-deep southern melody, CONSUME is the darkest feel-good record in years.
The JAB will be touring throughout 2020 in support of the release of CONSUME on Feb. 4, 2020.
