New Band To Burn One To (Morning Buzz): Root Jack

Today's Morning Buzz edition of "New Band To Burn One To" features Root Jack.


























Bio:

Common to the American life is the story of an un-educated man needing to support a family.

When the man is in Appalachia, he might mine coal, and if it is Mississippi, he might have picked cotton. In the North-West, those men might cut down trees.

Root Jack comes from those same Pacific NW woods, and sings of that universal desire to do right, but sometimes choosing wrong, often framed by mill town’s and logging camps.

There is a long tradition of the bohemian laborer that works during the day to support his family, then comes home at night to write songs, and often those songs are about his struggle.

Root Jack sings songs of that same struggle. Joy and exhaustion, satisfaction and disappointment, poor choices and the consequences of them.

Roots-rock, steeped in Truth.

Root Jack's "In The Pines" is the debut full-length produced and recorded by Jon Burbank (My Life in Black and White, ICANLICKANYSOB, Runaway Boys).

If Cream had been listening to the Carter Family, instead of Robert Johnson, it might have come off like this. Kris Stuart (former of Moonshine Hangover), Kevin Cowan (former of Lewi Longmire Band, Dylan-Thomas Vance) and drummer Chris Hutton (former of Lewi Longmire Band, Wooden Nickle) are a tight, 70's rock inspired roots-music band.






I was a bit hesitant when I first got the submission from this band as the first statement from band member Kris Stuart states "Let me start by saying I in no way think we are stoner metal". Well, they in no way are Stoner, but they do have a nice retro boogie groove with a nice mix of Americana country. I always liked bands like the Jayhawks and Whiskeytown because they were twangy but still rocked out. The tune "All I Need" has a very slow killer riff and needs to be heard. I must admit I couldn't stop listening to these guys. Great vocals, and great melodies that got stuck in my head and couldn't get out. Root Jack is the perfect morning buzz. Check them out. The band has currently finished some West Coast dates supporting Radio Moscow.
