Formed in January, 1996, this four member group from Trinidad & Tobago plays a brand of mixed pop music a la nobody.
Imagine vintage calypso (Atilla, King Radio, Executor), early 70's reggae (The Wailers, Peter Tosh) and classic Rock & Roll (Stones, Beatles, Dylan, The Velvet Underground, The Clash) all rolled into one........well that's jointpop.
Led by the former singer/songwriter of the Caribbean's most popular and successful Rock & Roll group Oddfellow's Local, Gary Hector continues to push the limit of pop.
jointpop, the self-titled five song EP and music videos for the singles "After Half Past Nine" and "Urgent" have steadily gained momentum on the airwaves, press and television in the Caribbean and on the college radio circuit in Canada and the U.S.A.
In September of 1997, the group completed a successful three week Club tour of South Florida. jointpop's strong live performances (The Cameo Theater, Rose's, Churchill's, The Grind) won the group many new fans and friends plus added press and radio play in South Florida.
Trinidad based Independent Record Company - LittLe 2 TunE Records - also attended the MIDEM LAC 1997 Music Market at the Miami Beach Convention Center where they introduced jointpop to the International Market in its bid to gain the group the wider audience they deserve.
Continuing strongly, in June 1999 jointpop embarked upon a ground-breaking Tour of New York City, where they showcased their unique sound at the legendary CBGB's Live Music Club. Further shows at the Spiral Lounge, The Orange Bear, The Baggot Inn and Kenny's Castaways ensured the group gained new fans, increased CD sales and sealed a solid foundation in the Rock & Roll Capital, New York City.
jointpop have finished work on their adventurous follow up CD "Exile Baby", which was released in October 2002 and are about to release their third music video.
The live jointpop experience continues to be a main draw on the local entertainment circuit.
