Standing Sun LIVE presents
Called “a rare and beautiful thing to behold” by LA Weekly, The Coals’ sound brings to mind
road trips through their home state of California, with sun-drenched days, technicolor sunsets,
and starry desert nights. Dreamy pedal steel drifts alongside singer Jason Mandell’s earthy
baritone, blanketed by warm organ tones and rich harmonies. Their most recent album, Through
Nighttime’s Purple Skies, was recorded and co-produced by Jason Soda (Everest,
GospelbeacH). L.A.’s NPR affiliate KPCC called the band’s 2013 album, A Happy Animal,
“inventive, catchy, genuine and moving.” Live, the band mixes in old gospel and a few classics
from the ‘60s and ‘70s, an invitation to travel with them down dusty roads, through rowdy
barrooms, and along the rollicking river of rock & roll
With his powerful, gut wrenching, baritone sound, Gethen Jenkins is on a fast train to stardom. Gethen is an award winning singer and songwriter from Huntington, West Virginia. His songs are of considerable depth and meaning, driven by passion, and full of heart and spirit which are sure to run the gamut of human emotions.“The relationship between the listeners and music is what I feed on”Gethen’s journey began surrounded by American music, from the purest of Bluegrass to whiskey soaked Honkytonk. Music took hold at the age of eight, beating on his dad’s Gibson guitar. His teenage years were spent in Galena, a rural indian village on the Yukon River, deep in the Alaskan tundra. After 8 years in the U.S. Marines, Gethen landed in Southern California. Returning from Iraq, determined to sing his own song, he found a home in Country Music with his five piece band The Freightshakers (since revamped as Gethen Jenkins). Over the next several years Gethen immersed himself in his music, working hard to create a unique sound keeping true to his roots.“This hard-driving, honky-tonk group lead by Gethen Jenkins is a perfect way to spend any night, wherever it may take you.” – National Country ReviewRecognizing Gethen Jenkins as a promising talent in Country Music, Five Music and Sony RED approached him in 2016 to join the label. The 805 Beer Brand has also taken notice of Gethen and offered him endorsement with their lifestyle brand kicking off with a billboard campaign Spring 2017 spanning from California to Texas. In conjunction, Sony will released a six song digital EP titled “Where the Honkytonk Belongs” on July 2017. Gethen is currently in studio working on his latest album slated to be released Spring 2018.With a restless creative spirit and natural born drive to connect with people, it looks like the best is yet to come!
