Greg Jacks, the former member of Multi-platinum Grammy, MTV, and NRJ Award-Winning-Band, Superbus, has teamed up with Phoenix-based Singer/Songwriter, Evan Berg to create Penny Billionaires, an electronic-fused hard rock duo garnering influences from bands such as Linkin Park, Disturbed, 3 Days Grace, and The Prodigy. The band has been featured on multiple publications including the Professional Adult Nightclub DJ Association (PANDA) charting their first single, “Awoken” at #5 in October 2021 and got playlisted on hundreds of Spotify Playlists ranging from 5000 to 1m followers. Penny Billionaires is co-produced by Jeremy Parker (Slipknot, Disturbed, Evanescence, etc.) and is set to release their second single, BRKDWN, on November 12th, 2021.
Evan Berg started off writing electronic pop songs and performing them in various clubs in The Phoenix area where he met Greg Jacks while opening for a local band on a Thursday night. There the two hit it off as they later collaborated on some of Evan’s pop songs. While Greg’s Band, Superbus was planning on their 20th-anniversary tour in Europe, the 2020 pandemic put the operation to a standstill. That left Greg and Evan in quarantine to create an entirely original project.
The two wrote a handful of songs originally dubbing the collection as Electronic Dance Metal where they would then reach out to Arizona engineer and producer, Jeremy Parker to take on the project. By the time the first set of singles was complete, Greg and Evan decided to go all-in on this exciting new project, leaving their pasts behind them.
