SIMPL3JACK / Press

“Backstage, preteen pop-punkers Simpl3Jack warmed up for the headlining slot by playing, appropriately, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Higher Ground” on bass and talking to girls. Later, onstage in front a remarkably enthusiastic crowd of more than 100, the sixth-graders blew the place up. Kids in Simpl3Jack T-shirts hugged the stage and sang along. Moms and dads applauded. And the kids were tighter than most under-rehearsed local acts. Who knew? (Nick Miller)”

“They are a Sacramento punk band that have played the Friday Night Concert in the Park Series a number of times, have already gathered a good sized following, and...they're not even in high school yet. SIMPL3JACK is Cole, Wyatt, and Ryan and none of them are over 13 years old. As you'll see, their answers reflect a simple and honest love of making music. For them, being in a band isn't about being a business or creating a product. It's about having fun!”

“What do you get when a thirteen year old boy falls asleep and dreams of a space odyssey searching for Bob Mould and Grant Hart from Hüsker Dü? You get a song dedicated to White Stripes drummer Meg White of course. If that makes any sense to you at all then you are going to love the oft-times quirky lyrics delivered in the classic hardcore punk style that SIMPL3JACK delivers. What else do you need to know? They are young teenagers; they are from Northern California; their lyrics aren’t going to inspire a revolution, a small uprising or win a Pulitzer, for that matter…but they are downright clever. Most of all though…these cats can play and they’re good. Really good. Sample a few tracks from their newest release (below) and, if you like these, then we recommend heading on over to iTunes and download the whole album for yourself.”
