A rising star in the Alt-Rock scene, frontman Stephen Jacques & legendary indie producers Alan Weatherhead and John Morand, collaborate on this prolific body of work. A manifestation of material Stephen gathered throughout his career as engineer, custom builder, and actor. Over 300 Radio Stations play “Submission Admission” — cited by many DJ's as a ‘little masterpiece.’ His 10th Release “Send Them Love” hits the street in the Fall of 2022!
Alan Weatherhead is well known throughout the world for his hundreds of songs and has weathered the music industry storms (as his last name would literally suggest). The Wisconsin native produced and performed on many of the great alternative rock songs heard on the radio over the past 20 years. As the European guitarist for Sparklehorse, he also performed on and produced many Cracker records, and toured with Hotel Lights among numerous other bands.
“This is far from a novice recording nor the product of precocious youth … a mature and thoughtful work of performance art and eludes easy classification.”
“Voted #7 of Top 30 New Albums of 2019: “Submission Admission”
“Another stunning full-bodied album — a supreme addition to an already sterling discography.”
“Commitment, sincerity, honesty, and energy are supplied by such ambitions. Stephen just thinks we can get there.”
“With the interplay of strings and guitars the song takes on a hypnotic quality somewhere between ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and the dream-pop of Mercury Rev.”
“This is top shelf musical art and an undoubted standout on an already exemplary effort.”
