Jetter Discloses New Album, Single, and More!

Progressive hard rockers JETTER have released not one but two albums! With them hard at work upon what is their next album with a new single due this spring time! Several members of the band discloses the matters below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.  

Paul Alexander: We started about 5 years ago as a cover band. The drummer (Rob Christie) and I wanted to start writing originals so…we did! A couple members didn’t really like the idea of writing or even playing original music so… we continued on without them. James Anthony joined us on bass and loved the originals we were writing but definitely felt the bass lines needed more life. He was right! His bass lines were so much better! Luckily, he joined before we hit the real studio. Kristie Lee also joined as we were starting out with originals… after we fired our cover singer who got drunk so bad, he couldn’t perform on stage. Her story of joining us is a funny one! But we will save that for another time lol!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name? 

Rob Christie: We were looking for a band name because we had a show coming up and didn’t name the band yet! A couple of the guys came up with a couple cool names. I suggested the name JETTER. By definition it means, “To Break Through” or, “That tingling feeling in your ears when you just heard something exciting.” Oh, and it was also the last name of one of our members of the band so I thought that would be cool! We voted on it and mine stuck!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

Kristie Lee: We are based in Tampa Florida USA. The music scene is very much alive in Tampa! Especially if you like death core and extreme metal. We are Progressive Hard Rock but we seem to fit in very well here. We have headlined shows where every opener was Death Metal…but the crowd still came up front got into it when we came on. You kinda worry, like…uh oh are these guys going to be into us? Then they are and we are pleasantly surprised! (James Anthony) As far as other local bands are concerned, Blood of Angels is a great band that represents the local music style.

4. How would you describe your style? 

Paul Alexander: Well, as Kristie Lee said, we consider ourselves to be progressive hard rock. Maybe were right on about that…maybe not…lol. Whatever the listener thinks we are…that’s what we are hahaha.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works? 

James Anthony: We have released two albums so far. Worth Fighting For and When All Else Fails… We usually just write whatever is coming to us at the time of writing…then the song goes through a series of changes and modulations that ends up being the final piece. I think it is fair to say that the listener can always expect us to take you on some sort of journey or direct you through a story. That is what we aim for.

6. Do you have any new music in the works? 

Paul Alexander: Yes! We are currently working on our next album and are expecting to put out a new single this spring. Stay Tuned!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out? 

James Anthony: I feel like we are always out and about! We are headed to California to shoot a Music Video for Egyptian Knights in March and that kicks off a tour that starts in California, goes through Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and the Carolinas then back to Tampa to Open for Nicko McBrain’s (drummer from Iron Maiden) side project Titanium Tart in Tampa and Orlando.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band? 

Kristie Lee: We plan to just keep writing and playing. We are planning something for Europe as soon as the end of this year. We have a lot happening!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff? 

James Anthony: We are available on all streaming services. You can buy our album on amazon and all our merch and music is available at

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Kristie Lee: Just get lost in it! It is completely open to your interpretation. Make it yours!
