Jesyka ♱ Jesus are VILLINS: the most dangerous band from New York City. Featuring the powerhouse rock vocals of lead singer Jesyka and the blazing guitar heroics and pop production prowess of Kareem 'Jesus' Devlin, Villins are a fearless musical duo that are in a league of their own.
The first time Jesyka saw Kareem, he was playing lead guitar on Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball World Tour HBO special. After beating out hundreds of other hopefuls, Kareem (along with Ricky Tillo) toured the world with Lady Gaga. It was during rehearsals for The Monster Ball Tour that Gaga gave Kareem his stage nickname "Jesus" as an homage to his passionate playing and powerful stage presence. A born and raised rocker at heart who also loves all things theatrical and glam, Jesyka wondered what working on a musical project would be like with someone like Devlin...
From 2011 to 2016, Jesyka was the front person for her New York City-based hard rock band, Syka. The duo first collaborated when Jesus produced and co-wrote Jesyka's previous band's EP 'Stay Wild'. During the development of Syka's Stay Wild EP, the two found they had magical creative chemistry and began developing the concept and sound that unbeknownst to them would soon become Villins. Villins officially formed in late 2016 and began honing their unique gothic disco hard rock sound and live show blending arena pop production, tight choreography, and custom laser effects. Now, Villins are using their combined powers to take over the world one show at a time.
No Jersey is Julian Ames, Sam Paxton, and Dylan Roth. They used to be called The Hell Yeah Babies and now they're a new band, sorta.
New music coming in 2022 on Telegraph Hill Records.
