Jackson and Scheer, share a "band of brotherhood" harmony both on and off-stage.

James and the Drifters is a four piece rock band with a smooth sound, a positive message and a curious name.

The Glow will be released on Friday, February 1st.

This band of brotherhood, as the group likes to call itself, which began in Huntington, Indiana, back in 2010, now calls Fort Wayne its home, and the JATD fan base continues to build throughout the midwest, as does their touring circuit.

Kyle Jackson, one of the founding members, is pleased with the band's evolution, and ongoing musical journey, being quick to point out, "I'm more excited now than I've ever been."

With their newest album, The Glow, ready to be released on February 1st, WBOI's Julia Meek decided to sit down with Jackson and his bandmate, Andy Scheer, earlier this week, to get the inside story on their name, signature sound, and musical staying power.
