Jady, the Alt-Pop Duo from Columbus, Ohio, Preps for Sophomore Album: ‘Napalm'”
They embarked on this project shortly after releasing their debut album, with the goal of grappling with the expectations set before them. As their music grew, so did their anxiety and the pressure to satisfy their audience. Each song in the project provided a glimpse into their experiences during the past year, shedding light on the highs and lows of starting a band and the ongoing internal struggle of whether compromising their artistic vision was worth it for success. They chose a haunted house as the central symbol of the album, continuing the narrative from their previous work, “The Haze.”
Jady is a rising Alt-Pop Duo from Columbus, Ohio. It all began when 19-year-old Jarrett Doherty, who had just finished touring with his longtime friends Twenty One Pilots, decided to form the band. Twenty One Pilots has played a crucial role in helping them develop their music. In just one year, Jady released their first album “The Haze,” which blends different musical styles. They’ve also sold out shows in Columbus, Cleveland, and Nashville in front of over 200 people, opened for Jay Joseph and Arrested Youth (in Jay’s band) on tour, and their debut album has garnered over 1 million streams across various music platforms. They are the fastest-growing band to come out of Columbus this year. This fall, they’re going on a nationwide tour with The Astronomers, releasing their second album called “Napalm,” and have booked a headlining show in their hometown with a capacity of 1,400 people.
