Recording new Jackslacks EP 'Other Side' with lots of great players! Look for the new release sometime this spring 2014...


"'Don't Mind Me'...I like the melody in the guitar to start things off. The singer has a really soothing tone to his voice, and the background vocals are really harmonious. The drum pattern is really groovy, and I like the way the tambourine is used throughout the instrumental section. The bassist really knows how to invigorate the harmonic structure with nice rhythmic accents. I like the lyrics to this song. The vocalist really has an uplifting demeanor in his singing. The instrumentals were balanced real well, and I thought the audio quality was perfectly mastered and mixed. This artist sound like the Beach Boys mixed with a Midwestern Polka band! It's a unique style that really shows the musicianship and life behind the artists. I enjoyed the various moods throughout the song too".

Q: Your music reminds me a great deal of both NRBQ and Travis and Shook. Are they any influences of yours?
A: Yes, I'm a big NRBQ fan. Had the opportunity to open for them in Ann Arbor, MI back in the day.
