JAW is power, an unrestrained force possessing an unorthodox songwriting style. Fearlessly they innovate. Unrepentant they push for change. Jaw is an inherent talent, a creative David in world of conformist Goliaths. JAW formed in 2001 when vocalist Emmanuel Olarewaju and guitarist Jason Dokken met through serendipity at a music store in their hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. After months of searching for individuals who shared in their creative vision, Olarewaju and Dokken recruited bassist Pablo Riedel and drummer Kevin Kornelsen. On July 17th 2001, JAW began. Within a few months of forming, the quartet had written a solid set of songs. These songs only scratched the surface of JAW's limitless potential. JAW recorded their first EP in November 2002. With EP in hand JAW began tirelessly touring the frigid western Canadian plains through to the eastern coast, while periodically dipping into Minnesota and North Dakota. JAW's live performance impressed to such an extent that within a year the group had sold enough albums to garner a strong following nationwide. In the spring of 2004, JAW refocused their attention on writing new material. Meticulously they picked apart every note, every section, and every transition until they were satisfied with the end results. In June of 2005 JAW entered The Space Behind A Garage Studios in Winnipeg, Manitoba with producer/engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, Gwar, Townsend Band, Darkest Hour, Threat Signal) to record their first full length, 'Swings Humans'. 'Swings Humans' is brutality and peace conveyed through movements, from the grandeur of it's mountaintops to the voids of it's valleys. Soulful, poetic, graceful and mighty, JAW's 'Swings Humans' reinvents what metal is and can be. Released on June 24th 2006, 'Swings Humans' immediately received tremendous amounts of both fan and critical acclaim. The band's press and internet profiles both continue to grow immensely. Now JAW prepares to cast the stone that brings down our worlds Goliaths. IT BEGINS. JAW is: Emmanuel Olarewaju: Vocals Jason Dokken: Guitar Pablo Riedel: Bass Kevin Kornelsen: Drums.
