“Jet Dread Stone formed in May 2017. We’ve brought our roots of country and western, soul and rock and roll together for a project called Songs of the Tarot, an album that consists of twenty-two songs, one for each of the cards of the Major Arcana. The narrative of the album is based upon an eponymous novel that tells the story of Jet Dread Stone and his emanating nemesis the Dread Rider, who follow one another through the textual and formal elements of the album. The cosmic mythos of the story anticipates the destruction of the human race in the final judgment by fire and the ascendancy of the lower forces of living matter”.
