Dappled Jay was born in 2015 in Helsinki, Finland on a cold winter day. The Finnish prog-rock group was founded by three rock dudes Aleksi Sandberg (vocals, guitars), Jukka-Pekka Vironen (drums) and Jari Rautiainen (bass). The Helsinki based rock trio is heavily influenced by rockers and bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Kingston Wall, Rush, Soundgarden etc. The band's music is a mixture of modern and vintage, screaming vocals, heavy riffs, solid rock grooves, electrifying guitar solos and pure rock attitude. Dappled Jay often uses unorthodox time signatures such as 9/8, 11/8, 7/8 and it's a big part of their distinctive sound.
The band has just released their debut album titled Colourful Night, which they recorded in the spring of 2018. The album was recorded at Studio Kolotila in Lauttasaari, Helsinki.
