Pay the Girl is an alternative rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio. The band is led by singer/songwriter Jason Phelps. Phelps got his start playing original music in the Cincinnati acoustic coffeehouse circuit, where he played as a solo artist for years. Eventually, Phelps hooked up with rock guitarist Mark Cooper as the music began to grow beyond him. Together with Cooper, they write the core of Pay The Girl's output. But their signature sound is only completed with the help of Drew Phillips on bass, Dave Harris on guitar and Greg Braun on drums.
