"Buzz-band is a term that has been fluttering around the Internet for quite some time now. It's meaning is pretty straightforward: it is an underground indie band, formerly unknown, that comes out with a single worthy of Internet hype. That is why I disagree with labeling the recent indie Internet phenom, The Neighbourhood, as buzzworthy; they are clearly destined for so much more.
The band is also exceptionally mysterious. It's a quintet based out of LA, with Rutherford as the frontman. However, I couldn't tell you who plays what instrument. Their website doesn't even have any biographical information. The shroud of mystery surrounding them is part of the reason people like them so much, they're not out there for fame and glory—yet—they're just producing great tracks, (and all of these tracks are available FREE online…just keep reading). Their mysteriousness also perfectly parallels with the way they blend the genres of rock, R&B, and folk in a way only an indie band can.
Their 5-track EP is available for free download on their website. All the tracks are well worth listening to again and again." --Candor News
Twenty-five year old Christian Berishaj has been performing since he was a teenager but only under the JMSN moniker for the past year. With the new name came a new, raw sound that reflects the darkest, most parts intimate of his soul and is already drawing him comparisons to the Weeknd and gaining him fans of the likes of Usher and other heavy-R&B-hitters. He released his first album as JMSN, Priscilla, in early 2012. Self-directed videos for "Alone", "Hotel" and "Something" were released to accompany the album's release.
