Pandora & Her Box


To open a jar and let the dangers within take on the world, to open a box and unleash sickness and our modern days of opening a can of worms. We never know the trouble we bring when we open something new but it can give us hope that secrets can be opened without judgment so the world can heal from the sickness of hate.

Jacksonville FL band Pandora & Her Box (PaHBox) founded by Guitarist & Lady of secrets Jessica Pandora (Red Bank NJ) January 2018. Jessica brought in Lead Vocalist Salem Priest (Fort Lauderdale FL) only days after creating the idea of PaHBox. They met each other at a audition for a completely different band and quickly found that both had strong writing chemistry and Salem has now become the voice of PaHBox. Through the first couple years there has been many lineup changes in search of the sound. The band has been through tragedy during this time as well. Jessica and Salem have worked together on and off and on again as PaHBox since it’s inception to come to the conclusion that together the music flows like an open music box with theIr hearts passion and It’s anger. Drummer Chris Moore (Columbia SC) and Jessica met on a Suicide Prevention walk in Jacksonville FL November 2019 and he was brought in to PaHBox as the new drummer . Bassist Tyler Wright aka Blondie (Houston TX) joined the band in June 2020 As the newest member to this crazy & loving family.

Pandora & Her Box’s name comes from Jessica’s decision to open the box about who she is to friends and family. She has always felt that you can’t hide your secrets and be truly happy at the same time. The masks you see at the shows are masks of stigma. No one should have to hide who they are behind a mask in fear of stigma. PaHBox‘s mission is to fight stigmas that hurt people, to show love and expel hatred, to show the world they don’t have to hide and to live a positive and happy life. We stand up for Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness. There is no reason any one should live a life in pain from others.
Pandora & Her Box - the box opens, the music begins and the secrets hold no regrets. You are Free!
