Handsome Jack

Some people call it a vibe and some people call it a groove. We call it boogie soul. It’s the sound of HANDSOME JACK on their new album “Do What Comes Naturally”.

Produced by Zachary Gabbard of the BUFFALO KILLERS and featuring Bob Nave (of the legendary Lemon Pipers) on hammond organ, among others, the music of this album seamlessly flows through deep dark mid-tempo boogies, smoky upbeat burners, and soulful feel-good rockers all with a natural ease.… Read the rest

The Struts

Think Queen meets Slade and your probably thinking of The Struts. They have a lot of Slades sense of fun with a dash of Queens pomposity. This is their latest song Body Talk.
