Expect the unexpected, and feed your minds


Jess and the Ancient Ones is a psychedelic rock band from Kuopio, Finland. The group was formed back in 2010 with the vocal talent Jess as their front woman. JATAO draws inspiration from pretty much everything that lies within the musical fields and beyond. Imagination is never to be censored when writing music, and one could say that's the lifeblood of all art.

Starting out with a strong NWOBHM influence, as heard on their self-titled debut back in 2012, the band has slowly grown towards their own true identity. Nowadays one can find traces of surf, blues, folk, jazz, rock, and loads more in their exciting and smoky sound.

Jess and the Ancient Ones are signed to Svart Records, who are known as the home of today's wild underground with a vast amount of modern cult releases under their wings.
The latest album "The Second Psychedelic Coming- The Aquarius Tapes" has been released in  late 2015 and received great feedback from all over the world.
