Green River Ordinance Josh Jenkins, lead vocals Jamey Ice, guitar Joshua Wilkerson, guitar Geoff Ice, bass Denton Hunker, drums Over the decade-long journey from their first incarnation as kids in Fort Worth, Texas to the upcoming release of their latest album, Under Fire, Green River Ordinance has evolved steadily. The powerful five-piece's message on their upcoming release evokes the challenges and triumphs of its members as they continue to grow personally and artistically. In 2007, GRO's intensity and strong fan connection prompted EMI to sign them to Capitol Records. In 2009, Out of Our Hands, the band's debut album shot to No. 10 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart and catapulted two singles, "Come On" and "On Your Own," into the Top 40. GRO shared stages with Bon Jovi, Train, Counting Crows, Gavin DeGraw and other headliners; earned press coverage from CNN, Billboard and Alternative Press and got their music played on 56 network and cable shows along with three films.
And then, in July 2010, they walked away to start anew.
Working with producers Jordan Critz, Chad Copelin and Jarod Evans, GRO recorded Under Fire at studios in Texas and Oklahoma. For this album, the band wrote all songs built on a foundation of strong, solid, high-impact music - walls of guitar, hushed and intimate acoustic moments and rousing harmonized vocals. Their search to find and communicate answers will guide GRO through years to come, beginning with their Under Fire North American Tour beginning Feb. 29 in Houston. But wherever their explorations take them, Under Fire may be the star that charts their course.
