Daredevil Jane, formed in 2005, is a relentless quintet that supplies a dominant sound of vibrant rock and time-worn guitar anthems. DDJ has quickly managed to bring back the raw state of rock. Comprised of Adrian Gunner, Micah and Matt Anderson, Trevor Armstrong, and Chris O’Brien, there is something dynamic about the band’s gritty, unique sound. They have toured with Buckcherry, Angels and Airwaves, Unwritten Law, and Louis XIV.
Everything just seemed to click from early on. They all had the same vision, and within a year were able to record their first album, Method to the Madness. DDJ’S debut album was produced by Tommy Andrews and Niko Bolis, the latter best known for his work with Neil Young and Mick Jagger.
