SIGNING STORY: THE JACKS
It seems like we’re constantly being told that rock is dead. That’s what they want you to believe. But, as is usually the case, the truth is very different. Music doesn’t die. It disappears from the spotlight and into the underground for a while. But as Neil Young so eloquently said, “Hey hey, My my, Rock & roll can never die.”
Take The Jacks, a group from Los Angeles who recently signed with Edgeout Music (under the Universal Music Group umbrella) and just released their self-titled debut EP in June. The band was formed just over two years agoby school pals Scott Stone (bass) and Thomas Hunter (lead guitar). Lead singer Jonny Stanback joined when the pair heard him singing at an acoustic open mic, with drummer Josh Roossin the last to become a Jack.
