After the success of their debut EP, acoustic trio The Jury Disagree are releasing their upcoming EP “Utopian Dream” in Lurgan at the end of the month.
The three piece, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Jordie Marshall, guitarist/vocalist Mick Hendron and vocalist Peter Dawson – all three previously from the progressive metal band Kashis – play folk with a progressive edge and will play the Railway Bar, Lurgan on June 27th 2014. As all three musicians are singers, The Jury make use of three part harmonies in their live shows that compliment the intricate guitar parts beautifully.
Coming from different musical backgrounds, the band members each bring in their own influences to give them their unique sound. Peter Dawson has a sub pop, Seattle influence mixed with Irish singer songwriters, while Mick Hendron would prefer the instrumental styles of the likes of Andy McKee and Michael Hedges. Jordan Marshall, though starting his musical career listening to Metallica and the sorts, has brought a more Eric Clapton feel to things. All these sounds and influences amalgamate to give The Jury Disagree their sound.
