The Jade Assembly
The Jade Assembly

The saying ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’ could easily be applied to Manchester’s music scene… So many bands, so much attitude, so much history. Keen to stand apart from their contemporaries, The Jade Assembly are in this for the long haul and for the right reasons, nothing is fabricated or posed, their attitude comes from an inescapable force of conviction in their music.

From the passion of Watson and Danny’s rhythm section, to the raw power of Smed’s guitar work, each Jade Assembly tune has a clear sense of purpose, nothing is contrived.

Central to their main point of difference is John Foster (Foz), a true northern poet and songwriter that places honesty above favour, a frontman who possesses an imposing sense of belief, not devoid of arrogance – but full of commitment.

As John puts it “Every word counts. Some people can’t see the wood for the trees, but if you don’t see The Jade Assembly – you’re missing the best bit of the forest…”

”Best Guitar band since Kasabian”
Clint Boom, XFM/Inspiral Carpets

”Flying flags and empowering crowds, with their anthemic rock and roll, The Jade Assembly are he enthusiastic spawn of the Britpop ere”
Emily Schofield, The Mover Music Blog

”The Jade Assembly enter like a hurricane and instantly blow away any audience drawn into their path”
Frank Floyd, Louder Than War

”What sets aside The Jade Assembly from the plethora of indie-rock try hards that litter the music scene of the modern day is that the band are not merely going through the motions of a tired genre but reinventing it, giving it new life and allowing it to rise from its own ashes”
Ian Critchley , Louder Than War

”TJA are one of, if not the most, interesting band swimming in an otherwise tepid sea of indie-rock” Ian Critchley Louder than war
