Jag Star biography

Knoxville, TN's pop/rock band Jag Star has traveled the world for the past 5 years. This critically aclaimed indie band has rocked stages with major artists like Saving Jane, Simple Plan, Michelle Branch, Bowling For Soup, Dashboard Confessional, and Tyler Hilton. Their music has been featured on many television shows such as "Laguna Beach", "Strong Medicine", "Good Girls
Don't", "Beautiful People", "The Real World", and "The Hills".

Jag Star has garnered attention from high-profile magazines like "Vanity Fair", who says the band "has guaranteed its place in the pop-music firmament" and "Blender Magzine", who included them on their compilation CD as one of "the 8 hottest bands in the country". Lead singer Sarah Lewis has won many songwriting awards, such as the USA SONGWRITING COMPETITION, LONDON'S "WE ARE LISTENING", SONGWRITER UNIVERSE'S "SONG OF THE MONTH", and runner-up positions in the JOHN LENNON SONGWRITING COMPETITION and THE BILLBOARD SONGWRITING COMPETITION. Their music was
recently included on Ireland/UK's "RISING STARS" CD, a compilation spotlighting the hottest up and coming groups in the world.

The band has received a considerable amount of commercial radio support, a rare achievement by an independent group. They are set to release their 4th independent CD, "The Best Impression of Sanity", on December 5th, 2006. Lead singer Lewis and guitarist "Just J" co-produced the album with Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Pillar, Disciple).

Regardless of all of these achievements, Jag Star considers their BIGGEST accomplishment to be their OVERSEAS TOUR for the U.S. TROOPS. They traveled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Kyrgystan, Singapore, Guam, Diego Garcia, etc... to perform concerts for the many men and women over there fighting for our freedom. They lived in the tents like the soldiers
and came with a huge appreciation for what they do.

What's next? The band will be touring in support of their new CD. Sarah recently signed some licensing deals for their new songs to be placed on film and t.v. She also just signed on to be WET 'N WILD cosmetics/ skincare new ambassador and will appear in the company's 2007 ad campaign.
