Go Back

Artist Bio

In the three years since their alleged meeting at a State College, PA Red Lobster, alternative punk-rap duo Joey Valence and Brae (JVB) have taken their genre-breaking and era bending sound from the Penn State University dorms to venues, festivals and homes around the world. Influenced by the sounds and cultures of hardcore punk, hip-hop and country music, JVB is energetic, clever and carefree, lyrically weaving their way through pop-culture and counterculture, skate shops and anime, BMX and street art. Fueled by their many millions of followers across TikTok, YouTube and Instagram and hits such as “Double Jump” and “Punk Tactics,” — the former has often been referred to as “the best performance in the history of Ellen,” while the latter has been streamed nearly 100 million times — JVB have amassed a global fanbase of both misfit teens and nostalgic adults, selling out shows across North America and Europe and performing at some of the world’s biggest music festivals (including Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, Life is Beautiful and Riot Fest).

The duo jumpstarted 2024 with a sold-out North American tour in support of their debut full-length, Punk Tactics, and will be supporting Sum 41 this spring in advance of their follow-up album, No Hands, out June 7th. JVB's goal is to one day unite the world in peace and love, but in the meantime they'll be busy acquiring the largest Pokémon card collection of all time.
