Storytelling

After Jack is a musical celebration of togetherness. With expressive songwriting, captivating vocals and a unique take on traditional mountain music, the trio combines a modern sensibility with distinctly old-time energy to mix bluegrass, gospel, and folk elements. Combine your most beloved musical memories with a foot-stomping string band, top it off with harmonies that spring straight from the soul of the mountains, and you’ve got After Jack. Rachel, Emily and Mary met while working together as performers in a professional theatre company. While forming the band, they realized they were blending three unique musical perspectives. Though often labeled “Americana”, their sound, ability to reach the heart of the audience, and the incredible joy that they bring to the stage cannot be adequately captured by one word. After Jack’s first full-length album is set for an April 2014 release on Traviana Records. The album’s title, “Echo,” is a notion that describes the influences of people and place on this collection of songs. The band’s songwriting combines stories to be shared and experiences that can only be lived. It’s also an invitation, to all who encounter it, to share those moments. With an ambitious touring schedule, the trio can be heard at major festivals on the East Coast, and will compete with 11 other bands at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. “If I was to name my boys over, I’d name all of them Jack. I never knowed a Jack but what was lucky.” - Sam Harmon, Tennessee storyteller, 1939
