Jayke Orvis

I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and grew up on Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, Metallica, Oingo Boingo, Fear, the Germs, Run DMC, Chaos UK, etc. My musical tastes never made sense to anyone but me. My dad introduced me to Doc Watson when i was very very young and that sound always stuck in me. Ive always had these haunting melodies racing in my head thanks to Doc, Hank Williams and the Stanley Brothers. Even smashing guitars around in punk bands, these melodies would stick in my head and come out.

I have no qualms telling you I was basically behind the .357 String Band steering wheel for the first 4 and a half years. People always ask, so im explaining. Shit happens, and it did, we stopped being friends. I also believe everything happens for a reason.

I began playing with a group of amazing and talented people who cared more for each other than the chase of a buck, The Goddamn Gallows.

Now I have my own band, the Broken Band. In order to prevent myself from looking like an idiot, more than I already have, Ill just let you read on about everyone involved... in their own words...
