When I first discovered 9FM I mistakenly called him by the wrong name on a podcast. His music is so recognizable however that when I was reviewing submissions I remembered it immediately having only heard the song “The Company” a few times previously. Amazing stuff. It’s even more amazing when you discover some of the stories behind the music.
Ninth Floor Mannequin – Jarrod Pedone
“The Company” for example is a song about a family named The Benders who were serial killers…killing settlers heading west in the 1800’s. Even the name Ninth Floor Mannequin was penned after watching a uniquely bizarre episode of The Twilight Zone. I love Jarrod’s perspective when it comes to his writing. After talking to him, his music sounded a little different to me. I guess the insight into his life made me take a second look…or listen.
Take a peek into the life of Jarrod Pedone aka Ninth Floor Mannequin and give his music the support it deserves. As always…SUPPORT INDIE MUSIC!!
