A #TBT AND a Josh Kaler primer! Having HULA HI-FI open for us in December keeps with a long-standing tradition of us sharing the stage, and sometimes a tour bus, with Josh (Slow Runner, Michael Flynn). Kaler has promised us some swoony new tunes soon, but in the meantime here's a reminder of why the making of Sparrow was just SO fun. We know you guys never do, but this December is definitely not the time to pull the whole "skip the opener" thing when we pull into your town.

Curious about what Matt’s up to when he’s not playing a thousand instruments with us? The Access Champions Podcast recently chatted with him to learn more about CaptionPoint and its mission for accessibility in the arts!

DECEMBER TOUR! TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY! We are hitting the road with a sassy mix of standing-room-only rock shows, comfortable City Winery sit-downs, and by popular demand, a few evenings of #LicMag, where we’ll perform both The Licorice Tea Demos and Magazine in their entirety. And just when we thought we couldn’t squeeze any more goodness into this tour, our good pal (and Sparrow producer) Josh Kaler will be joining us. Y’all are going to LOVE his “Hawaiian Noir” band, HULA HI-FI. We do. Tickets go on sale THIS FRIDAY, 8/2, at 3PM on Do you want access to tickets even earlier? For as little as $5, you can join the presale on Wednesday, at (And we may be biased, but there’s a bunch of cool other stuff happening there, too.) For the past few years we have loved playing together again live. Last year we were able to get to the Northeast and Midwest again, and were reunited with even more fans. Touring isn’t something that we can do year-round any more, so we try to make these shows special, and being on the road in the holiday season is particularly fun for us. Do us a favor and let friends know that we’re headed their way, please? We don’t want to miss one single face in December.

Experiencing a mid-week case of ennui? We probably can't help with that, but here's our inaugural episode of The BivBros Show! Watch Matt and Evan take on an utterly ridiculous approach to reviewing other bands, as determined by a roll of the Dungeons-and-Dragons dice. Episode 2, coming soon. Any predictions or wishes for which band(s) they'll land on?

#TBT to 1999, and that time we played a gig in Paris! Fast forward to 2019, where Jay has located the original, multi-track ADAT tapes from the show that he plans to re-master and release via Patreon this year! Related, anyone have an ADAT player we can borrow? Thanks to our great friend Vivian for capturing (and preserving!) these shots!

We're excited to announce brand new Patreon tiers (, with more access to more music at more levels! For those of you wondering, Patreon is based on a centuries-old concept, but is a new way to stretch ourselves, to be closer to fans, to create new music and grow as musicians. Instead of crowdfunding a product, you're crowdfunding the artist, and everything they create in the future. So far, the experiment is working! Brand new JLC songs have been written and shared with our Patrons. Jay has released a baker's dozen episodes of Cool Demo, an incredible audio documentary that details the making of Sparrow. We're also doling out decades of B-sides, Demos, and high-quality live recordings. Patreon allows you to witness the start of the creative process of making future recordings, while being able to reminisce about the band as they used to be, too. Patrons have empowered artists to be artists for centuries. Please check out to become one of ours!

There is a new YA series on Netflix that the band'll be binging this weekend: The Society. Not only does it star one of Matt (and his wife Lindsay's) favorite actors they'd like to Netflix and chill with, Rachel Keller (Fargo, Legion), but JLC fans will hear a familiar refrain if they make it to the 23 minute mark of Episode 2. "'Lost' without grownups"? We'll take it.

Winner winner! It's an exciting day at JumpHQ! We've assembled to practice some old and new favorites for our two shows in the Carolinas this weekend. And, we've just learned WE WON 1st Place in the 2018 International Songwriting Competition, Adult Album Alternative Category for Hand On My Heartache. Check out the full list of winners here: Tune in for a celebratory BivBros (and friends) LIVE tonight, around 6PM ET! Huge thanks to you, our amazing supporters, for always backing our cause. And also, Tom Waits and his celebrity friends who voted for our little ditty!

One year ago today we checked into EastSide Manor in Nashville, and got to work on Sparrow with our friends Josh Kaler and Owen Biddle. That's really hard for us to believe; it feels like only yesterday and also a lifetime ago. Here's a clip from the studio! Don't recognize the song? It's called Killing Juliet, and though it didn't make it onto the album who knows when it may surface again! We'll be together this week, so expect plenty of posts and some nightly Facebook Live-ing, soon!

Our fan community Opium³ just concluded a March Madness-style tournament of JLC songs. Top seed Say Goodnight beat 63 other favorites like B-13, Dancing Virginia, Sparrow, and 15 Stories. What do you think? Did our Opiates get it right?

We're so grateful to those of you that have been supporting us on Patreon for the last couple of months. Thanks to you, we're being allowed to continue living with the new album and, at the same time, start thinking about what is next. We are having the best time working on new things and sharing those things with you. We're really stretching ourselves, and you are allowing us to be able to do that. It's a learning process for us, and we'd love to know how you think we're doing so far. If you're supporting us on Patreon, what are your thoughts? If not, would you like to let us know why? We built an anonymous survey to check in with you—it should take less than 5 minutes and it would help us so much!

#WonderingWednesday Two weeks (and two days) from seeing you at Cat’s Cradle! Want to help us with the set list? We’re wondering which LTD-era song we should play that night: U Can Look or Because of You? Can’t make it to Carrboro? We’ll share the winning song on Facebook, Live!

It's Tax Day. A happy day for some…a sad one for others. Undoubtedly an intense time for the CPAs that help make a freelancer's life as financially safe and easy as possible. Today we'd like to honor one special person that has pulled Evan, Matt, and Ward out of a jam many times over: Allyson O'Steen Scott. Consummate professional, beautiful person inside and out, fan of JLC. We love you, Allyson! Thank you for all you do!

Ever wonder what our writing and recording process is like, from demo to done? Jay Clifford takes you on an in-depth exploration of our album Sparrow in his audio documentary, "Cool Demo". We release 5 episodes per month, plus the original demo recording of each song from the album, on our Patreon page. Wanna try it before you buy it? Here's a sample of this month's Hand On My Heartache episodes: Warning! We curse! Check those surroundings before pressing play!
