Brand new Jackslacks EP 'Other Side' available on iTunes 4/25/2014.


"'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.
