Jounce: Spring tour 2010


Jounce is not your normal touring ensemble. Made up of four childhood friends who have known each other since kindergarten, the musical connection between them reflects these deep roots.

Consisting of Dan Tamberelli on bass, Matt DeSteno on guitar, Brian Purwin on keyboards, and Joe Ciarallo on drums, the band is a mainstay at bars, clubs, music halls, colleges and festivals up and down the eastern United States, consistently refining their presence in both the live and studio settings.

Bass player Tamberelli grew up working with Nickelodeon and played the character "Little Pete" on the popular show "The Adventures of Pete and Pete." However, most people don't know this, as the music has been speaking for itself. "In one week I can remember having a jam session with Luscious Jackson and being taught TV Eye by Iggy Pop," says Tamberelli on his days on the set. "I'd be lying if I didn't say those early experiences didn't have some sort of effect on my decision to become a musician."

Jounce's most recent album, These Things was released to critical acclaim in March 2009, followed by an East Coast tour. The band welcomed guest musicians Marco Benevento (The Duo) and Tom Hamilton (Brothers Past, American Babies) on the album.

The band also recently recorded a version of Miracle Legion's "The Heart is Attached" as part of a compilation album, Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, dedicated to Miracle Legion frontman Mark Mulcahy. The compilation also featured Radioheads's Thom Yorke, The National, Frank Black and Elvis Perkins, among others.

"The Heart Is Attached" will also appear on the band's new digital EP, in addition to four new original compositions. The EP has will be released in Spring 2010.
