Jack Grace Band at Triumph Brewery in New Hope

Jack Grace is a singer, songwriter and guitarist hailing from Brooklyn, NY.  Simple enough, unless you happen to happen to work in the music business.  The entertainment world loves a label:  character actor, avant garde painter, fill-in-the-blank musician.  Jack writes for himself and plays for others.  Simple.

He’s been most recently known as a country musician, but that designation belies the myriad of influences that shape his sound.  It began with an obsession with the Beatles, and as a teenager, he wore out his Zeppelin records like so many of us.  Later, when he discovered Neil Young, he wore those discs out too.  His first band, Steak, had a Zappa-inspired sound, he was told, when he was barely aware of the iconic figure who couldn’t be bothered to stick to a single formula.  Fitting. Later, after discovering he had a baritone eerily reminiscent of the great Johnny Cash, he added some steel to the mix and suddenly everyone was calling him country.
