Los Angeles, May 24, 2019 — We’ve worked with the NHL during the playoff season and we’re thrilled our music can be a part of enhancing the upcoming games, events and highlighting all of the best moments that have happened so far” comment THE JACKS. Check out the promo, here.
Earlier this year, they were tapped to perform at the NFL pre-Super Bowl and NHL Winter Classic events. For the remainder of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs, The Jacks’ music has been chosen to be heard during the games’ broadcasts, highlight reels, and commercial bumpers.
Jonny Stanback (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tom Hunter (lead guitar, vocals), Scott Stone (bass guitar, vocals), Josh Roossin (drums/percussion) – release their self-titled debut EP June 28 on EDGEOUT Records/UMe, the label is spearheaded by veteran music executive Tony Guanci who signed an exclusive global deal for the new label with UMG. The first single, “Walk Away,” is available now all digital retail outlets. A lyric video for the song is streaming now on the band’s official YouTube page.
“We are not a rock band, we are a rock n’ roll band.” THE JACKS stand by that claim, thanks to a heavy influence from the British Invasion of the ‘60s and ‘70s mixed with Southern Rock. To blend those influences seamlessly, the band joined forces with legendary producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Maroon 5, Blackberry Smoke) and mixer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Hozier) at Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Sound Recorders.
The mix of songs on the EP is fitting since THE JACKS got their name from a fan telling them that they were “jacks of all trades” when it came to playing different styles and blending their songs with those of their idols at their early concerts, and each of these tracks shows off a different side of the ensemble. From the hard-edged rockers to the more melodic numbers, you can hear how the band members have poured their hearts into each of the songs.
