J. Burd ~ J. Burd
There’s a lot happening in J Burd’s world. Since emerging on the Long Beach music scene in 2014, this sort of busyness is not uncommon. J Burd has been prolific for their time here, releasing three full length LP’s, an EP, and several singles since their incarnation.
When Jason first started recording in his bedroom his sound fit in the general lo-fi tag of fuzziness. In his later releases though he manages to create a sound that is crisp, comparable to studio production.
Jason makes music in J Burd with his two brothers Joey and Nick Callanan. J Burd is Jason’s brainchild: he sings, plays guitar, writes nearly all the songs, and records all by himself. Joey plays bass and helps Jason write lyrics. Nick composes and plays the drum parts.
The brothers started making music in the early 2000s. Their songs were short and fast and drew inspiration from hardcore punks like Minor Threat and Adolescents. As they grew up they developed their sound and officially became J Burd in 2014. The band released their first album, the self-titled J Burd in 2015.
