“He’s like that Cash kid, but good.”
— Jerry Lee Lewis
“It sounds like Cole Porter meets Gene Autry.” — NY Times
“One of the city’s most skilled and personable stars.” — Time Out NY
“The man slings more than a few sparks from his big, hollow-body Gibson….what sets his songs apart from the rest of the country or alt-country scene is his laugh-out-loud, absurdist wit.”
—New York Free Press
“If you don’t laugh and cry at the same time as Grace and his gracefully loose band navigate their way through such gems as ‘If You’re Gonna Raise a Drunk’ and ‘Morning Margaritas’, you better check your pulse. You might be disgracefully dead.” — James Reaney, London Free Press (Canada)
“He has been known to praise whiskey and large glasses of beer.” — New York Times
“A bona fide Country Rock Originator.” Kilkenny Advertiser (Ireland)
“…f***ing splendid…you can practically taste the whiskey dripping off the songs.”– Village Voice
“The man slings more than a few sparks from his big, hollow-body Gibson….what sets his songs apart from the rest of the country or alt-country scene is his laugh-out-loud, absurdist wit.” —New York Free Press
Jack’s form of experimental country art rock has been compared to everything from Frank Zappa to early Johnny Cash.
Five album releases and tracks featured in the films Super Troopers and Beer Fest have earned Jack a growing following and a steady hum of praise. His most recent release, Drinking Songs for Lovers, features some fine country numbers, but he added mariachi horns to give them a Latin flavor, inspired by his yearly pilgrimage to Tulum, Mexico, where he likes to write songs on the beach. His previous album was a bossa nova-influenced country concept album called The Martini Cowboy.
