Founded by Jeff Rouse, The Gemini Affair project began to take shape in 2017. Fresh off the road as a touring musician, Rouse began to write his own songs. He recruited a handful of standouts to get the music on tape. Within weeks, Rouse had a number of songs built out by Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees), Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie), Ryan Waters (Sade) and longtime Emerald City rocker, Keith Ash (Star Anna). The self-titled The Gemini EP was produced by Don Gunnand was one of the best-selling records in Seattle upon its release.
With praise from Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, Buckcherry’s Josh Todd and radio stations like KJR 950 AM and KISW 99.9 FM, The Gemini Affair has a new six-song EP To… cut, mixed and mastered for fans, and set for release from G4L Records. Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready debuted the EP’s first single, “You’re Perfect,” on his boutique vinyl record label Hockeytalkter, and on Sirius XM Radio Pearl Jam Channel. Part U2, part Foo Fighters, part Soundgarden, the record is all torch, lighting fans forward.

From MIKE MCCREADY, PEARL JAM
“The members of Seattle’s The Gemini Affair are not only incredible musicians, but they are dear friends of mine. I’ve been fortunate to share the stage with Jeff Rouse & Keith Ash countless times, and I’m stoked to release a single with them! The songs “You’re Perfect” and “A Whisper To A Moan” exhibit a modern take on their classic rock influences! Enjoy the songs and look for them live sometime down the road!”
