Hopeless Jack / Bio

The two piece drums and guitar duo out of Reno NV delivers a unique and explosive sound. The bands high energy stage show paired with real and heartfelt lyrics pulls audiences out of apathetic cell phone staring and brings them along for the ride. Blistering slide guitar and danceable rhythms get people moving.

Hopeless Jack takes the shattered, dirty and discarded emotions of this life and builds them up with worn out tools, song by song. Hopeless Jack draws his sound from the greats such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Seasick Steve, Scott H. Biram, Johnny Cash, Junior Kimbrough, Gun Club, The Dirt Bombs and The Gories.

“I try to write songs that mean something, something believable, songs that are real. Passport stamps of love, loss and anger. I believe in Rock & Roll and that it saves people. When you hear the records, when you see me play, I want you to believe me. I am here to make believers.” - Hopeless Jack Beisel
