ROCK: Modern Rock, POP: with Live-band Production
After the release of the grand and thematic Save the Swimmer, and the bitter sweet pop symphony of the subsequent Safe Distance EP, it was time for Portland, OR band Jonah to step back and take a look at where they wanted to go musically with their next offering. They had won over fans and critics alike with their adherence to the majestic side of what pop music could be; something resembling early U2 earnestness meets the hypnotic and dark beauty of Radiohead. Tracks from both records had made their way onto nationally syndicated TV hits and garnered radio rotation as well as landed spots on many compilation discs nationwide.
But the band was evolving and needed the experience of a seasoned producer to guide them. They chose Marshall Altman, a veteran from the world of A&R at both Columbia and Hollywood Records and a songwriter/producer with many notable artists in his resume (Marc Broussard, Zebrahead, Matt Nathenson). Altmanâs friend and colleague, Joe Zook (Modest Mouse, Counting Crows, Remy Zero), was enlisted to engineer the recording. The result is the long awaited second full-length album from Jonah: Trust Everyone Before They Break Your Heart, a tightly wound pop testament that displays the breadth of the bandâs talents.
From the frenzied and chaotic avalanche of Timeâs Up to the cinematic dreampop of The Joy of Drowning, the songs are statements to the whole: portraits of love and loss, the betrayal of the heart and the elusive promise of happiness and success, all set against a backdrop of eternal optimism for the human condition. The centerpiece of Henry Curlâs bright and elegant tenor is echoed in the shimmering waves of Chris Hayesâ understated, less is more guitar playing, pinned down by the concise and seemless pulse of Matt Rogerâs bass and Jake Endicottâs drums. It is the sound of a band evolving into something brand new, without loosing what made them so appealing in the first place.
Trust Everyone Before They Break Your Heart will be released in March of 2007.
"Comparisons could be made to Coldplay, but Jonah's mesmerizing vocalist and talented cast of musicians deliver their own brand of pop music here. Compelling, beautiful, and dreamy, the enchanting pop and subtle sounds of the band, who keep things interesting with a slight rock backdrop, but primarily rely on their lush pop creations, is so full, so heaven-esque at times, you can't help but lose your breath..."

"Portland's beloved baby, Jonah, does it again- comes crashing in like a turquoise wave with another overwhelming, dynamic album of lush, encircling Brit pop and Emo. With wet guitar, lush texturing and layers upon layers of cushy backdrop, this is music you can fall back and sink into- just like the ideal beanbag chair. A listening experience like this will impress on your mind the sensations of a warm swim in tropical waters or sleepy days spent in a bed full of pillows with the rain dancing on glass. "
" The melodic pop and rock of Jonah's music presents an ever present and rich wave of instrumental textures and feelings. Moving like a tide, it pulls the listener along through harmonically explosive instances that ride emotions to the top then draws them back for recovery, only to explode once more. In this way, their music is fully habit forming. Because their songs rise and fall in a swell of emotion and power, giving the feeling of expansiveness, it's as if every song is both a rocker and a ballad set in medium tempos."
"Jonah certainly has some strong cards in its hand. Singer Henry Curl is an exceptional vocalist whose intriguing voice can climb any emotional ladder with gymnastic ease. Radioheadâs Thom Yorke, Bono and even a dash of Freddy Mercury can be detected in Curlâs heavenly howls. The music falls in line behind his voice â dreamy and dramatic flare-ups that give Curl plenty of room to bare his soul."
