Biography

Based in Vancouver, B.C., Black Jacket is a beat, a voice and rhythm inspired simply by music for music. Performing often across Van City, Black Jacket is a high-energy dose of reality infused with lyrical hypocrisy and opposing desire, melodic and dynamic guitar, and a beat that can only be described as energy.

Born in Peoria, Illinois, Dan Monument is the voice that marries poignant lyrics with conspicuous bass; Montreal-native, Ian Cymet is the instrumental backbone of Black Jacket, blending the energy of funk with the classic elements of rock on guitar; and Toronto-born Chris Eastman is the drum beat that powers the heart inside the jacket, pumping life into the body of resonance.

With musical influences ranging from the Rolling Stones and Tool to Radiohead and the Mars Volta, Black Jacket is the object in the display window that drapes life on a mannequin. Exposed. Vulnerable. Beautiful. Real. Discovering pain and finding love, exploring imagination and conquering vices, in the end, the goal is to find the Black Jacket that fits like skin. ==============
