Root Jack

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.
