—John McCall, Too Much Love
Stephen Jacques is a Vocalist, Guitarist & Lyricist of 70+ Songs, and Nationally recognized Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist, and Recording Engineer Alan Weatherhead (The Cardigans, Cracker, Sparklehorse) collaborate on this exceptional body of work. Alt-rock, Americana, and folksy rock, these recordings are a manifestation of material that Stephen gathered throughout his multifaceted professional life as an engineer, custom builder, actor, and TV host. His real-life experiences reveal their truths in a delicate, dreamy, oftentimes humorous fashion. With a worldwide fan base, one day Stephen may be on a California radio station tour, the next day a London radio station premieres his album. A Rising Star In America's Indie-Rock Arena, the Band's much awaited 9th Release “Charmed to Death” hits June 2020!
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.”
