About 5J

  Founded by Eryn Murman and Jason Hite in the Fall of 2011, 5j Barrow has built an audience brick by brick through the boroughs of New York City, earning the title of “Best Band in NY” after winning The Greene Space WNYC/WQXR’s ‘Battle of the Boroughs 2014.’  They were rewarded with an appearance at the historic Apollo Theater.  After releasing their debut album From the Dim, Sweet Light in 2014, they set out on the road, playing to packed venues in Cleveland, Nashville, Ithaca and Washington DC.  At their first festival, Indie Week Canada, they came in 3rd place out of more than 150 bands from around the world.
