It was just a few weeks ago that VAINS OF JENNA announced the departure of
their long time friend, Swedish comrade and vocalist Lizzy DeVine.
However, it’s a new day, change is now and we are proud to introduce to
you Jesse Forte the new lead singer and front man for VAINS OF JENNA.

Jesse Forte was raised in Orange County California and comes from a
musical back ground. He attended music school at MI, played in a slew of
bands since a teenager and even admits he pan-handled on the corner
playing guitar for money. Jesse says: “I am a performer first. Whether it
be 5 people, or 5,000 – I am embrace that opportunity to sing and play
music.” The bands newest member was born in Arkansas but moved to the West
Coast at a very young age. Eventually Hollywood’s music scene came calling
and Jesse started killing and thrilling crowds on the Sunset Strip.

“We first saw Jesse in 2009 when his band opened for us at the ‘Cat Club’.
And he blew us away.” Says VAINS OF JENNA co-founder and bassist JP White.
Jesse is unique for sure. Imagine Steven Tyler’s charisma, Chris
Cornell’s powerful voice, a charming smile; then mix it all in a blender
with a pair of nunchakus – and you get Jesse Forte.

The Swedish rockers have had lots of success during their young career in
the states. So, this was no doubt a big blow – but this band refused to
lay down and die. “It’s not in my blood to stop doing what I started. I
love music, I live music, and this is what I do.” Says Nicki Kin the bands
key song writer and multi instrumentalist. Kin plays lead guitar, piano
and has in the last year; even shared some lead vocal duty in VAINS OF
JENNA. The band has lived the American dream by touring on the biggest of
stages, appearing on the hippest TV shows, and gracing the pages of
countless magazines. But that was yesterday, and today is a new day. “We
embrace this change, and we welcome Jesse into our family.” Says the band.

VAINS OF JENNA first burst into the music world when Kin & drummer Jacki
Stone were still in High School. Gigs on the weekends, rehearsals at night
and school all day. Jacki says: “Thank God that is behind us, I never
liked school much and had no interest to be a factory worker. I pursued
music very early and have no plans to quit.” The youngest and self taught
drummer has been playing in bands with Kin since they were in the 4th
grade. Stone’s brother White has this outlook: “We’re not a Hollywood band
or a Swedish band either. We’re just a rock band. We want to see the
world. And I speak for all of us when I say – we cannot wait for the world
to see us.”

VAINS OF JENNA play “WHISKY-A-GO-GO” Saturday April 10th 2010 in
Hollywood, California. A European Tour follows with dates in Norway,
Sweden, England, Wales, Italy & more.
