OURS hit the road next month in support of their latest album released last year. The self-titled set came out on OURS’ own label Cage Recording Company, the third to be released independently after several major label offerings.
To launch the tour, OURS performs at Jammin’ Java on Thursday, March 3.
OURS is the brainchild of singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Jimmy Gnecco, who has six studio LPs and two LPs under his belt and going stronger than ever. Gnecco didn’t hesitate to step away from the majors and the limelight, to put his heart and soul into writing, performing, recording, mixing, producing, and calling his own shots.
“It was an insane process of going through 200 songs that I had written. I ended up recording somewhere around 80 of them,” Jimmy said. The album will be showcased at the upcoming gigs along with seven special shows on the trek where the band will play the breakout debut Distorted Lullabies (Produced by Steve Lillywhite) in its entirety along with other songs from the band’s catalogue.

Over the years Jimmy Gnecco and OURS have remained faithful to the original intention of the band’s creation: to touch people with the music, the lyrics, the voice, the songs, whether on album or live. Today, the band composed of April Bauer (keyboards), Mikey Iasiello (guitars), Chris Iasiello (drums), and Carmelo Risquet (bass), is in perfect osmosis after days and nights spent rehearsing, over and over again, in order to propose OURS’ most ambitious work to date. The band offers songs that are like invitations to travel. Their sound is huge and exciting, infiltrates the mind and heart of the listeners and raises their spirit to an unsuspected level. They never forget the details that make life worth living, and everyone can relate to the lyrics.
