Saving Abel Bio

Saving Abel is an American rock band formed by Jared Weeks and Jason Null in 2004. The band's name references the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Null came up with the name saying “I googled the story of Cain and Abel and found a line about ‘there was no Saving Abel,’ which just jumped out at me.” However despite the name, they're not a Christian band.

Jared Weeks and Jason Null formed the band in their small hometown of Corinth, Mississippi in 2004. Weeks was playing guitar at his best friend’s house, when Null, who was in a rival local group walked in to rehearse with his band. Within days of that meeting, Null and Weeks were writing songs for the future Saving Abel band. In early 2005, the pair’s songs caught the ear of noted producer Skidd Mills (ZZ Top, Saliva, and Robert Cray), who took the band into his 747 Studios in Memphis.

Saving Abel gradually came together with guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor, and drummer Blake Dixon. Weeks would toss Saving Abel demos onto the stage whenever bigger bands played in town. Weeks remembers: “ I used to work at a hospital. I’d have to be there at 4:30 in the morning drawing blood. I’d wake people up and stick a needle in their arm. I’d be walking around the hospital, singing ‘Addicted’ in my head, writing down the lyrics on patients’ clipboards and doctor script pads.

Saving Abel released their self-titled, major label debut album on March 11, 2008. The album features the single "Addicted" which peaked at #2 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart. As of November 2008 Saving Abel's self-titled album has sold over 222,858 copies and peaked at #53 on the Billboard 200. The album itself was entirely made on FL Studio.
