#CFF2021 Artists' Spotlight: Jagertown
DEMITRI | PRESTON | JESSE
Jägertown’s musicianship, razor-sharp vocals, and songs they have released have shaped country music fans. They have reached new heights, charting three country singles (Rearview #26, Small Town Superstars #29 and She Won’t Be Lonely #53) and just released Falling on the Blacktop and will kick off the 2020 tour in January with over 40 road dates.
Comprised of five talented and accomplished individuals, Jägertown owes its’ country-rock sound to each of its members. Preston Creed, the band's frontman, grew up immersed in music thanks to his parent’s influence as musicians themselves. Before joining the band, Creed worked with Grammy-winning producer Sir Mix-A-Lot, Warren G and P!NK. The sole female of the group, Liz Anderson, has been playing the fiddle for nearly two decades. She has crafted an exceptionally distinct style of playing, combining rock and funk while earning two music degrees along the way.
Jägertown’s bassist, Jesse Brooks, brings the country flavor to the band. Growing up playing multiple instruments and enjoying classic country artists like Merle Haggard and Don Williams, his style is grounded in tradition. Drummer, Demitri “Meter” Mannos, has been playing since the age of three. His peaceful spirit, infectious smile and powerful performance elevates every note the band plays. The lead guitarist Scott Dixon has performed everywhere from small honkytonks to huge arenas all over the world Including performing at the Black Tie -n- Boots Inaugural Ball for President George W. Bush and has toured with artists like Neal McCoy, Jo Dee Messina, Jarrod Niemann and more. Scott is well known and widely respected in the music industry. With his stellar guitar playing skills and “Can Do” attitude he is not only an awesome guitar player but also a great friend on and off the stage. Jägertown has defined its signature southern rock style over the course of five studio albums and countless hours of live performance. By writing and recording completely original music, what you hear on the album is just as genuine as what you see on the stage. Over the years, they have toured tirelessly from coast-to-coast. Whether it be festivals, fairs, opening or headlining, the band never delivers less than its best. High-energy performances have been winning over fans of all ages; fans that the band has dubbed “JägerNation.”
Teaming up with producer Matt McClure (I Drive Your Truck, 2014 CMA and ACM Song of the Year) at the historic Ocean Way Studios located in the heart of the legendary Music Row in Nashville in 2018 marked the next stage in their journey. Matt help elevate the band with the release of Blacktop in 2019 and lead the way in the development of the band’s six studio album this fall.
“Line ‘em up, shoot ‘em down. There’s a party going down in Jägertown” is from the title track to their first album and has become the anthem for the band on stage and in business. 2020 will bring all new music, a new tour and an expansion of their involvement as ambassadors for Country Fan Fest in Utah. Jagertown looks forward to the release of their six-album and seeing the loyal JägerNation at each tour stop in 2020.
