“Lenola” was a section of Moorestown, NJ where Jay and his brother Chris grew up. The town no longer officially exists, but the name lives on within the area as suburban myth.
Jay was the primary songwriter, responsible for the majority of music the band released. Sean contributed songs and co-wrote with Jay on some songs from 1998 through 2002. Dave Grubb handled all aspects of recording and engineering in the home studio . Scott handled bass duties, designed show posters and concocted lights/costumes and audience treats for several legendary holiday and album release shows. Scott, along with Jay's brother Chris, contributed the majority of lyrics used on all recordings.
Scott departed in late 2001. Josh Brown & Jeff Scioli joined the group for live shows in 2002. In early 2003 the group officially disbanded following the overseas release of their Sharks & Flames 2xCD. Jay, Dave and Jeff now make music as Like A Fox and Sean continues his music as The Twin Atlas.
