Bio-
"James 'Jim Cat' Ellis was born in 1981, the youngest of 8 brothers and sisters. He was drawn to the fast life and allure of music around the age of 14, and has been doing his own original music since. His talents include songwriting, rapping and freestyling, playing the keyboard and producing his own beats, as well as being able to sing a variety of different genres of music. James developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome in 2006 after a bad reaction to antibiotics. The doctors gave him a 20% chance of living, and told him he would most likely end up blind and never able to speak clearly or sing again. After coming out of a coma, he fought for his life for months on end and still bares the scars of this horrible disease. He beat the odds and after a run-in with law enforcement, he decided to devote his life solely to pursuing a career in the music industry."

You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound.
