About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: October 19, 2010
  • Artist / Band: The Jump Starts
  • Hosting Show: Musical Merry-Go-Round
  • Sound: Ryan Greenlee
  • Video: Paul Oryem

Justin Johnson, one of the lead singers with Pretty Little Empire, and Sarah Ross, known for her work with Paper Dolls, have combined for the Jump Starts, an acoustic folk rock duo that spotlights harmonies and jittery, bouncy rhythms.

The St. Louis duo takes a spontaneous approach to songwriting and music making, preferring to let songs develop on-the-spot and naturally, rather than laboriously. Their sound evokes bands as disparate as the Violent Femmes and the Modern Lovers.
