Jager Soss (Drummer/Vocalist)
Long Island born and raised, Jager Soss at the age of 18 lives and breathes rhythm. Early on it was apparent that Soss was intended to play the drums. When discussing the first time he sat down and picked up a pair of sticks he says “I knew what I was going to chase for the rest of time.” Soss has been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with the likes of George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers Band), Kenny Brooks (Rat Dog), Robert Walter (Mike Gordon Band), and has even worked with Debbie Gibson. Soss continues to learn and grow everyday as a musician.
