Junkyard Poets are a six piece industrial percussive driven rock band from Sherwood Park, AB, Canada. Featuring the award winning songwriting talents of Jared Salte and Peter Mol, this indie sextuplet is generating a buzz like no other.
They are an indie band. And the great thing about being independent is that stylistically you can go anywhere without mass industry smothering the creative flame. So that’s exactly what they do.
Their debut album entitled Rock, Pop, Roll is stylistically just that. Whether it’s Trip Hop, Industrial Rock, Blues, Jive, Country, R&B they do it all. All based around performances and dramas such as “”Stomp”” and “”The Blue Man group””. With the theory of songs having a dramatic performance element whether it be smashing down a wall, striking PVC pipes, barbershop blues, each song must be inspired by a setting in order to tell a story. So that’s exactly what they do, they give you the setting now it’s just up to you to write the rest.
Christmas with Junkyard Poets was released December 1, 2009.
