Hailing from Lockport NY, Handsome Jack plays a fusion of boogie soul rock n roll that has earned the admiration of fellow rock travelers such as Chris Robinson and Neal Casal (CRB, Black Crowes), Zachary Gabbard (Buffalo Killers), and Ben McLeod (All Them Witches) among many others.
Today Glide is excited to premiere the band’s video for “Got You Where I Want You,” a clear standout on the new album. It’s fitting that the setting and narrative of the video are that of a revivalist preacher church ceremony in a tent, complete with poisonous snakes. The big-hearted rock and roll anthem is loaded with soulful vocals and brassy flourishes to make it a swaggering Southern groover. In a time when so many people are susceptible to misinformation and drinking the Kool-Aid, the song feels especially relevant. The song and video culminate when the band shows up – with frontman Jamison Passuite looking like a rock and roll Jesus – and blows the lids off these brainwashed revelers.
