Plain Jane Automobile

With fans reaching to the far ends of the Earth, Plain Jane Automobile could very well be the best kept secret currently in the music scene. Formed in 2005, the Orlando based four piece have accumulated a loyal and strong fan base who have diligently supported the band every step of the way. As they continue selling out shows across the country, their debut album, The Collector, has been downloaded thousands of times. Their hit songs “Stones” and “Close My Eyes” were even licensed to Nokia and placed in over a million cellphones worldwide as the standard ringtone. With the music industry comparing PJA to the likes of U2 and Muse, members Duke Crider (vocals/guitar), Luis Mejia (guitar/vocals), Paul McCorkell (bass) and James Dickens (drums) have brought together their cultural heritage to form a sound that is both universal and unmistakable.

PJA recently completed their second album, in which they raised over $12,000 from fan donations to go into the studio with famed producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, NEEDTOBREATHE). The album is set to release in February 2011.

In 2005, Plain Jane Automobile received the “Best Unsigned Band in the Southeast” award, which is the DiscMaker’s Independent Showcase's grand prize. “Close My Eyes,” a song on the band’s self-titled 2006 EP, was added to the playlist at Orlando’s O-ROCK 105.9 (WOCL), a first for an unsigned band. PJA signed with agent Jeff Howard, from the Agency of the Performing Arts, during summer 2006. The relationship resulted in tours throughout the Southeast and Nationally. PJA have supported Athlete, Jet, Blue October, Supergrass, Stereophonics, Mute Math and Plain White T’s, as well as touring nationally with OURS.
