The home of the Blues and birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Memphis, Tennessee is proud to introduce a brand new genre, “Rhythm and Greens” with the Mason Jar Fireflies.
Adam, a former MC focused in Hip-Hop, Greg, an unreconstructed Dead head, and Kyndle a life-long singer in church (reflected in her almost gospel sounding vocals) may sound like strange bandmates, but the combination works. The Mason Jar Fireflies bring something totally original to the table. Kyndle and Adam’s voices blend so perfectly that their deep connection on and offstage is evident. While they may look like a family, Greg has no relation to Adam or Kyndle, yet the generational mix works beautifully for this trio. All three have been making music for decades. Kyndle grew up in a family of musicians and singers and has been singing solo in church since she was four. She originally wanted to pursue a career in Broadway and performed in several stage productions before joining the band. Greg has been playing anything with frets since his early teens. And Adam has been writing songs since he was five. The group’s principal songwriter, he says that he tries to write “the kinds of songs that Dad would play”, drawing influences from the golden ages of R&B and Country music. The band’s “Rhythm and Greens” sound might be described as Detroit meets Nashville.
With ten tracks to boast, the Mason Jar Fireflies’ album is a breath of fresh air into the industry, blending contemporary styles with nostalgic, “down-home” roots music.
