About the Artist
Jobu was born in October of 2005 at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale Il. They first began by blending their love for guitar driven music. As friends and a fan base began to assemble, Jobu decided they would give something back to the fans; rhythmic beats that move bodies towards the dance floor. Although three of them were classical guitar majors, (Aaron Vanvooren, Matt Hines, and Andrew Neel) they knew that their music needed more than just guitar riffs and solos. With the help of then drummer Jeb Rendall, they decided that they needed to incorporate more vocals, catchy melodies and encompassing grooves that would really hit home with the audience. During the next two years, Jobu managed to gain an outstanding reputation as a local artist, selling out venues all over Carbondale, and making a move all around the mid-west. The summer of 2007 Jobu gained acceptance in the Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL. They new that this was a high point for the first era of Jobu seeing how drummer Jeb would be leaving the band to pursue an audio production career in Chicago. With this in mind, Jobu searched for a replacement but was unsuccessful. One day Matt Hines received a call from good friend and phenomenal drummer Evan Ryan. Evan had always been a friend of Matt’s since high school, but had been busy studying Jazz and Classical Performance at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in the city. After the departure of Jeb, Evan decided to come to Carbondale to fill the gap in Jobu’s musical genius. Since the arrival of Evan, Jobu has astonished fans with their intense musical ability, songwriting knowledge and crazy showmanship. Jobu is happy to announce the release of "Stop Time", the bands first professional studio album to date.
