It was years in the making, but the original power-house ROCK a cappella group has bundled their live energy onto CD. Nowhere else outside of a concert can you hear their signature tune, led by the master of the funkaaaaaaaaae scream, Austin Willacy. Other originals that have been in the Jacks' repertoire for years but never before on CD are "Thread" and Deke Sharon original "We Fly." Amazing recent originals include a quartet from Garth Kravits (the amazing "Bam!," "Dive into You" co-written with Austin, and "I Want It All" and the lovingly beautiful "Still By My Side," both co-written with Deke), and offerings from bass Bert Bacco ("Breath") and VP-guru Wes Carroll ("Change"). Half the songs feature Kevin Fudge, who temporarily filled Austin's shoes.
About the Artist
The original Jacks met each other while singing in a cappella groups at their various colleges on the East Coast. They all moved to San Francisco to form the House Jacks in September 1991. Since then, there have been several membership changes, culminating in the tight ensemble showcased and loved today around the world.
The House Jacks have released two independent recordings, NAKED NOISE and FUNKWICH, both of which continue to receive rave reviews and international airplay. In 1999, they signed a recording contract with Staccato Records (Artelier Media) of Germany and released their third album, NAKED FUNK, a compilation of songs from their first two albums.
The House Jacks have appeared with James Brown, Ray Charles, Jon Secada, LL Cool J, the Neville Brothers, President Bill Clinton, Crosby Stills and Nash, the Pointer Sisters, the Temptations, The Gap Band, Tower of Power, Starship, Run-DMC, and many others.
