From St. Simons Island, Georgia, Mutiny Starter Kit’s creative core is a father/son duo which credits such acts as The Shins, Arctic Monkeys, Death Cab for Cutie, blue sky foundry, The Whigs and Johnny Marr among its influences.  J. Dow III is responsible for guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals and lyrics while J. Dow IV (“Jack”) provides the drums and percussion.  


Song-focused guitar rock, all of the band’s compositions are authored and performed by the Dows with other musicians (particularly singers) contributing to the cause, variously.  Mutiny Starter Kit’s first album, Under the Amber Lights, takes its name from the warm glow of the band’s home studio which birthed the fourteen (14) song project.
