Boy Jumps Ship were formed in the winter of 2009 and are a four piece ensemble hailing from Newcastle. By drawing influences from each member’s wealth of experience the boys are a force to be reckoned with and have created a live show that is an explosive amalgamation of musicianship, distinctive hooks and arresting energy.
The band had been avidly writing songs for their self titled EP which was released in early 2010. With song writing centered around a powerful diversity that has not been heard from the North East in a long time, the band are primed to set the UK alight and make the forthcoming year their own.
