The Young Immortals have released their debut album "When History Meets Fiction", this July of 2007.
Over the past six months The Young Immortals have accomplished many of the goals they set for themselves including taking a big step with booking their own National Tour.
The song "The Fever" (available at Apple iTunes) is featured on the Starbucks compilation: "Off The Clock Vol. 1." available in over 6000 stores across America and is the TOP downloaded song off the album! "The Fever" is also in regular rotation on the satellite station XM Radio
The Young Immortals won Portland''s Rockstar Mix-It Up Music Competition at the famous Crystal Ballroom in front of a sold out crowd. After Storm and The Balls of the Rockstar Supernova television show performed, the audience voted for its favorite act of the night, giving The Young Immortals the Grand Prize... To record at the famous yet stealthy Kung-Fu Bakery (Pink Martini, The Shins, The Decemberists, Tegan and Sara, Everclear, https://www.tradebit.com) ... and the result is "Where History Meets Fiction"
The Young Immortals have converged like allies on a battlefield. Marching in step, their different styles and histories combine to create an energetic and vibrant rock show layered with personality and conviction. In a musical world dominated by pop-punk and emo, The Young Immortals remind people that rock and roll once had the ability to convey passion and dignity in the same way impressionist painters capture the essence of life. The Young Immortals are thoughtful but not depressive, sing-a-long but not throwaway, and throughout their repertoire, songs are lushly textured by an evocative performance containing an aggressive physical energy that belies the spontaneous forming of the band.
The Young Immortals songs have been recieving many ''spins'' on radio stations all over the country. Featured during an interview on Radio Phenix in Caen, France. They are also currently receiving ''spins'' on ICR-FM in Cardonagh, Ireland.
"Come out to a show, introduce yourself, get to know us, and our friends. We have the greatest/crazy-est/best looking-est/loud-est/hot-est/roudy-est, fans in Portland. A lot of great things are happening and we want you to be a part of that!”
"The Fever is a song that deserves all the words I overuse in music previews: jaunty, peppy, synth-decorated, owing something to jangly Britpop and something to the showmanship of ''80s bands (you can just hear the potential for onstage charisma in singer Jacob Ray''s voice). Clearly, it''s not just me affected by this sorta-''80s, sorta-''90s pop rock ... "
"I found it easy to like the band; they seem sure of who they are and what they want to do. They are not attempting to create a pretentious, esoteric, inaccessible artistic statement through music - instead, they are creating back to basics rock''n''roll. While some other artists might look down on them for that, it is this very quality which has likely found them success. The Immortals have created a plan to gain followers by writing good, catchy pop songs, always performing with passion, and being game - even excited - to talk with their fans."
- Vancouver Voice
"Dressed to the nines in resplendent black waiter outfits with white ties, they cut the image of success and put on a high-powered, energy-filled display that best captured the essence of what a rockstar is really all about."
- Positvely Entertainment and Dining
"The Young Immortals write songs that are short and peppy, complete with pop staples like doot-do-doot-da-dos, soul claps and countdowns … it''s just contagious."
- Missoula Independent
"Their music can be best described as post-modern-operatic-melodic-rock … keeping its complex edge reminiscent of the 60''s rock movement; it is accessible high energy poetry and most importantly, fun!"
- BoZone Entertainment Calendar
"On the debut album ''A Small Part of Something Beautiful'', Jacob Ray''s Young Immortals wear their influences on their sleeve like a badge of honor. The haunting qualities of Jeff Buckley, mixed with the pop song craft of the Beatles and Radiohead."
