What started out as friends jamming in an Ann Arbor basement has evolved into a cohesive band of tight knit musicians who each add their own unique musical experiences and influences to create their own brand of music.
When Great Divide takes the stage, the crowd is treated to music steeped in the traditional roots of blues, country, soul, funk, and good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n roll. They work to both honor and preserve the elements of rock’s rich history, while exposing a new generation to the experience of their brand of honest, down-home music.
In the winter of 2008, Great Divide retreated to Roshambo Records Studio in Hazel Park, MI along with the legendary White Room Studio in Detroit to record their first album, which was later titled, “Reservoir.” The self produced album is a collection of songs selected from their already existing repertoire which was crafted over the last few years of playing and writing together. The album touches on a variety of the influences that compose Great Divide’s infectious sound and reflects a band standing at the beginning of the road to a bright musical future.
Great Divide recently got packing and made the move to Chicago, where they will continue to spread their music on their exciting path to success.
Jones Street Station

"Of all the bands Brooklyn has produced in recent years, rarely has the borough birthed an Americana-rock love child like Jones Street Station. But this isn't just Appalachia-on-the-Hudson—the band is just as fond of rockstar timbres and synths as it is mandolin, banjo licks and harmonica. We're not the first to liken them to a little band called Wilco, and we'd humbly submit the folk/pop stylings of The Avett Brothers and the jamboree ethos of Akron/Family for comparison as well." -Paste Magazine
