JUBILEE in 140 words

Formed in 2004, JUBILEE uses its music, featuring intelligent arrangement of cello, piano, guitars, drums and vocal harmonies within compelling folk rock crescendos to raise awareness and funds to fight modern slavery. Half of every album they've ever sold has been donated to groups working on the front lines. Lead singer Curtis Romjue says, "Music makes our lives better. We hope our music can improve the lives of others. Nothing I've learned about the world disturbs me more than slavery and the forced prostitution of young children. This needs to frickin' stop. It's powerful to point out these gross realities, because they repugnantly illustrate the logical and inevitable out-workings of an ill-tended human heart. Music helps us to ruminate on life and live a more poised, intentional, and fruitful existence."

JUBILEE's motto and encouragement to fans is, "Do what you love to undo what you hate." Read more about JUBILEE on their website,

JUBILEE in 250 words

Formed in 2004, this 6-piece clan of musical abolitionists uses its music to raise awareness and funds to fight modern slavery. Half of every album they've ever sold has been donated to groups working on the front lines. Lead singer of JUBILEE, Curtis Romjue says, "Music makes our lives better. We hope our music can improve the lives of others. Nothing I've learned about the world disturbs me more than slavery and the forced prostitution of young children. This needs to frickin' stop. It's powerful to point out these gross realities, because they repugnantly illustrate the logical and inevitable out-workings of an ill-tended human heart. Music helps us to ruminate on life and live a more poised, intentional, and fruitful existence."

"To See You Well" (2011) features JUBILEE’s junior release of beach town folk rock with intelligent arrangement of cello, piano, and vocal harmonies building to compelling crescendos.  This nourishing collection is refreshingly laid-back yet thoughtfully expresses a range of human experience and emotion.  The music and artwork pay tribute to the land, people, and cultures of Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest, the band members’ milieu. Some might say it sounds like a bearded man sitting by the ocean eating his favorite healthy toasted sandwich with all the trimmings.

JUBILEE encourages their audience and fans to join in action by adopting their motto. “Do what you love to undo what you hate” is the cornerstone of their activism and musical inspiration.
