There is a long tradition of the bohemian laborer that works during the day to support his family, then comes home at night to write songs, and often those songs are about his struggle.
Root Jack sings songs of that same struggle. Joy and exhaustion, satisfaction and disappointment, poor choices and the consequences of them.
Roots-rock, steeped in Truth.
Root Jack's "In The Pines" is the debut full-length produced and recorded by Jon Burbank (My Life in Black and White, ICANLICKANYSOB, Runaway Boys).
After 5 years of playing all over the PAC NW with bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, The White Buffalo, and even Pat Travers, and on festivals with Shovels and Rope, Sasspirilla, and Dr Lonnie Smith, Root Jack has proven they belong on the big stages, but can rock a small bar with the same enthusiasm.
If Cream had been listening to the Carter Family, instead of Robert Johnson, it might have come off like this. Kris Stuart singer and guitarist, Kevin Cowan bass player and drummer Chris Hutton are a tight, 70's rock inspired roots-music band.
