    HANDSOME JACK TO RELEASE THEIR NEW LP “EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT” OCTOBER 19, 2018 VIA ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECCORDS

    Hailing from Lockport NY, Handsome Jack plays a powerful and emotional fusion of boogie soul rock n roll that has earned the admiration of fellow rock travelers such as Chris Robinson (CRB, Black Crowes), Zachary Gabbard (Buffalo Killers), and Ben McLeod of All Them Witches, who produced their new record.

    On Everything’s Gonna Be Alright the trio digs deeper into its soulful influences, brilliantly bringing back to life the classic sounds of Chicago, Memphis and Muscle Shoals, all rolled into one timeless record of American rock music for a new generation.

    Handsome Jack is Jamison Passuite (guitar/vocals), Joey Verdonselli (bass/vocals), and Bennie Hayes (drums/vocals).

    Handsome Jack’s new album “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” will be available October 19th on Limited Edition Vinyl, CD, digital and streaming formats via Alive Naturalsound Records.

    2014 Press Release for Handsome Jack’s Do What Comes Naturally album

    Some people call it a vibe and some people call it a groove. We call it boogie soul. It’s the sound of Handsome Jack on their new album Do What Comes Naturally. Produced by Zachary Gabbard of the Buffalo Killers and featuring Bob Nave (of the legendary Lemon Pipers) on Hammond organ, among others, the music of this album seamlessly flows through deep, dark mid-tempo boogies, smoky upbeat burners and soulful feel-good rockers all with a natural ease.

    Handsome Jack hails from Buffalo, NY and began as a blues garage-rock band. After high school they moved out of the garage and developed their sound into a natural soulful boogie that remains rooted in raw blues. They’ve shared the stage with The Sheepdogs, Blue Cheer, Gov’t Mule, J. Geils, The Hold Steady and Robert Randolph to name a few.

    Handsome Jack’s Do What Comes Naturally will be available October 7, 2014 on CD, digital and limited edition colored vinyl through Alive Naturalsound Records.

  • REVIEWS

    • “This record is probably more fun than the first Black Crowes record—which from an influence/aesthetics standpoint, it oddly evokes—and were it to bear a Harvest Records imprint and a 1970 copyright date, no one would bat an eye. Which must mean it’s really good. – Dave DiMartino / ROLLING STONE
    • “This record rules. It’s an album for people who want stanky, swampy, dirty boogie. This one’s a keeper; trust us. You want standout tracks? Try all of ‘em.” – PERFORMER MAGAZINE
    • “Handsome Jack are mining a tradition, and Do What Comes Naturally digs solid ore from a deep vein…. a celebration of laid-back but serious partying, and it'll make a fine soundtrack for your next celebration of the boogie. – ALL MUSIC
    • “No pretense, no skinny pants, no Swatches to be seen. This is your dad’s rock and roll. And your dad was cooler than you.” - GLORIOUS NOISE
    • “Buffalo boogie band recalls greasy '70s stoner stuff — Allman Brothers et al. — on debut album.” - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL
    • “The music of this album seamlessly flows through deep dark mid-tempo boogies, smoky upbeat burners and soulful feel-good rockers all with a natural ease… damn catchy.” - GLIDE MAGAZINE
    • “… wonderful album.” - THE EVIL ENGINEER
    • “… a mix of Kings of Leon, Canned Heat and The Buffalo Killers, there's also an appreciated amount of grime too. The Creedence Clearwater Revival sort of grime. Do What Comes Naturally hits with blues fused rock and roll that truly grips you.” – THWART
    • “Produced by Zachary Gabbard of Buffalo Killers, Handsome Jack has captured a truly authentic Southern soul style that is equally as smoky as it is reeling and ready to boogie.” - A JOURNAL OF MUSICAL THINGS
    • “Handsome Jack’s ‘Do What Comes Naturally’ is elevated garage rock from a garage in which we’d all be lucky to hang.” - THE HORN
