Bare Jams captures the sounds of that one summer you will never forget. Started as a passionate project of Ollie Coombes and Sam James, the band has grown and evolved from the humble duo busking in 2011 to the full fat festival force it is today. Now a six-member collective, the members come together to blend a tight fusion of reggae, dub, soul, pop and ska into a unique, collaborative sound. This sound comes with exuberance and relentless energy, creating a stage presence that exudes love and good times. Their versatile lyrics provide insight into a journey of highs and lows, struggles and triumphs; their veiled metaphors allow listeners to find comfort in their own interpretations of the words, coupled with a solid backbone of eternal optimism delivered through the music.

In 2015, the band released their debut EP “Cold Treats,” whose title track has amassed more than 1.5 million streams on Spotify and helped them gain worldwide attention. Followed by the “Three Words” EP in 2017 featuring two very sonically varied singles “Strange Mind” and “Wind In The Willows“, they are now ready to share their debut album.

The success of both EPs is reflected in the support of fans in the UK and Europe and the increase in the band’s audience in both areas. Headlining their own UK and Dutch club shows, as well as supporting The Wailers, La Pegatina, Will and the People, Tankus the Henge and most recently the mighty Chainska Brassika on their 2 week UK tour. On top of these opportunities, the band had a summer schedule full of 40 UK and European festival dates, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Oerol and Black Forest On Fire experiencing a connection with both old and new listeners.

In store for Bare Jams in 2021 is a continuation of their jubilant live performances in the UK and the rest of Europe, first underway after the release of their debut studio album ‘This’ n ‘That’ in 2020.
