“I’ve heard that before…”, “I know that band…”, “That song sounds like it should be on the radio right now…” All of these comments have been said about “Sally Jayne”, a hard working Southern Rock band from Mississippi that wanted to create a unique sound. Marcos Rene Rogers (Vocals/Guitar), Rodney McBay (Lead Guitar), Erik Beall (Bass), and Casey Adams (Drums) wanted to create a sound that was familiar and exciting at the same time. They wanted to create a sound that encompassed all of the senses, experiences, and memories of ones life. Lyrical purity and strong musicianship mixed with flowing melody paint a portrait for listeners that are wholesome, deep, and soothing. “We have 3 to 5 minutes to write a novel, have it make sense, and bring the listener in without sounding fake.” – Marcos. “We wanted to write a song that someone had to listen to when they woke up in the morning and went to bed at night; songs that helped someone through dark times or helped them remember someone who has passed.” – Marcos.
Their popularity was sparked after their first big win in the 2004 Jagermeister Battle of the Bands hosted by Rock 93.9 in Jackson, MS. In 2005, Sally Jayne’s song “Feel” was the #1 requested song on 97.9 WCPR’s “Homegrown” show in Biloxi, MS. Their same song, "Feel", was selected out of thousands by Quickstar Productions and placed on a National Compilation CD which can be purchased on all digital distribution sites.
Regardless of their overall status, they will continue to stay grounded and work hard, attracting people by their sound, skill, and down to earth personalities. Their diligence, self-promotion, and energetic live performances will continue to place these skillful musicians heads and shoulders above the rest.
