Jukebox The Ghost: WXPN's October 2010 Artist to Watch

This Philly-based trio, originally formed while guitarist Tommy Siegel, pianist Ben Thornewill, and drummer Jesse Kristin were in college in Washington, D.C. – is described as whimsical, quirky, energetic indie band featuring melodic pop tunes driven by a sizzling rock momentum.

Jukebox The Ghost has a unique sound, with an eclectic mix of elements from artists Ben Folds, Elvis Costello, Queen, They Might Be Giants, and The Flaming Lips. Their debut album, Let Live and Let Ghosts was described as “a sunny, piano-led explosion of pop exuberance” by the group, and their new album, Everything Under the Sun, has been popularly accepted as catchy and skillfully structured, yet wildly diverse. The band has toured extensively, most notably with Guster and will soon be on tour with The Barenaked Ladies. They played SXSW in the spring, Lollapalloza in Chicago in August, and appeared on David Letterman in early September featuring their song “Schizophrenia.” As their fan base grows and excitement over the recent album release increases, it is easy to guess that this group could be the next big thing in indie rock.

"We’ve been keeping our eyes and ears on Jukebox The Ghost since they debuted a couple years ago."
The band really nailed it on their new album, Everything Under The Sun, and has grown a lot over the last couple years.
~Bruce Warren, Assistant GM of Programming for WXPN
