HOPELESS JACK (USA) – Low Down Dirty Roots & Roll
HOPELESS JACK – A raucous and raw element of rock & roll grounded in the roots of soul and blues. The two piece drums and guitar duo out of Reno Nevada delivers a unique and explosive sound. The bands high energy stage show paired with real and heartfelt lyrics pulls audiences out of apathetic cell phone staring and brings them along for the ride. Blistering slide guitar and danceable rhythms get people moving.
Out of a background of country, blues and self-taught madness Hopeless Jack takes the shattered, dirty and discarded emotions of this life and builds them up with worn out tools, song by song. Influenced by greats such as; Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Hillstomp, Johnny Cash, Gun Club and the Gories.
Originally performing as a one man band, Hopeless Jack’s Haunting vocals penetrate as Jack’s edgy lyrics tell a story of a damaged man searching through his brokenness for truth.

“I try to write songs that mean something, something believable, songs that are real. Passport stamps of love, loss and anger. I believe in Rock & Roll and that it saves people. When you hear the records, when you see me play, I want you to believe me. I am here to make believers.” – Hopeless Jack Beisel
