Jane Lee Hooker deliver a shot of 100 proof Brooklyn rock ‘n’ roll with their new single & video for “Jericho." It's the first single off their forthcoming summer 2021 release.

JLH exploded out of New York City in 2015, and won acclaim in the U.S. and abroad with their debut album of revved-up blues covers, “No B!” The band were snapped up and signed to legendary German blues label Ruf Records. Their sophomore release, Spiritus, was released in 2017, to rave reviews worldwide. Classic Rock Magazine called it "fiery, just the right level of grubby, and a righteous kick in the shins."

Jane Lee Hooker toured extensively behind these records and played to packed houses across the U.S. and Europe, including Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria and the Czech Republic.

"Jericho," their long-awaited single, features the band's signature blend of hard-edged bluesy rock ‘n roll. "Jericho" has been a crowdpleaser at JLH's live shows.  Singer Dana “Danger” Athens brought the song to the band, with lyrics that were especially relevant regarding the struggles and challenges that people have recently been facing. Says Athens, “Jericho is one of those songs that kind of wrote itself, the music and lyrics just poured out of me. A lot of songs have been written about the Battle of Jericho, it’s a timeless anecdote for having the strength inside to use our voices to break down the walls that divide us and change our world for the good.”

Matt Chiaravalle (Joe Bonamassa, Warren Zevon, Courtney Love,) produced and mixed Jericho, after previously working with the band on both “No B!” and “Spiritus.” A new Jane Lee Hooker EP will follow in Summer 2021 - and Jericho gives fans an early taste of what’s to come.
