Addison Road

Jenny Chisolm met Ryan Simmons at Baylor University in Waco, TX. They began writing songs together and not long after the group started booking shows. Ryan played acoustic guitar and Jenny sang. It became apparent that they needed a full band, so they enlisted a couple of friends: Jay Henderson on drums, and a friend from church, Ryan Gregg, on lead guitar. Thus was born The Jenny Chisolm Band.

In 2002, Ryan and Jenny were married, and they moved to Dallas to become a full-time band. Eventually they changed their name to "Addison Road." It was named after a sound tech who had a baby named Addison. They liked the name Addison and put Road at the end of it for no real reason. Jenny just didn't want to be the moniker that the band went by anymore.

The band's line-up has shifted from time to time, but Jenny and Ryan are still at the core. in 2010 the band held a YouTube competition to fill an opening on drums! After many tryouts, the band invited Richard Scott into Addison Road! Pretty cool way to join an established Christian group!

Big Break: Addison Road got their big break when MercyMe invited them to join the Rock 'n Road Worship show.  At the time, Jenny was very pregnant and the band usually only did one song each night of the tour - but still made a big impact and they continue to gain momentum!
