JACK THE RADIO // EPK
Raleigh, North Carolina's rising indie-roots-rockers Jack the Radio craft the type of music to blast from your porch on early summer nights to help inspire the sweltering season to come. They’re North Mississippi Allstars, Tom Petty and the Avett Brothers smashed into one cosmic-radio-fighting-band. A wonderful blend of intuitive arrangement with meaningful lyrics that transport and move you, which has earned them spots on some of the south's biggest stages with acts including Hall & Oates, George Thorogood, Avett Brothers, and the Cold War Kids. It's also landed the band two signature collaboration beers with Mystery Brewing Co. and Trophy Brewing Co. When they're not on stage you can hear their tunes in film and television on such networks as HBO, USA, TV Land, Fox and Spike TV.

"One of the best NC bands around, period." - Fred Mills, Blurt Magazine
"Badlands is one of the finest big-time rock records to come from the area in recent years, an effort that seems poised for attention far beyond the band's previous local focus."
- Spencer Griffith, Independent Weekly
"If arena-sized crowds still seemed like a reachable goal for young bands playing straight-up rock music, Raleigh quintet Jack The Radio would be a prime candidate for moving up to the major leagues."
- David Menconni, N&O
"...acid-rock version of the Eagles" - Aiding & Abetting
"Think Spoon meets Springsteen at the mechanical bull championship. Their effortless genre-hopping between bluesy, Southern pop and hard-edged Americana has mass appeal written all over it, positioning them alongside stadium mainstays such as Mumford & Sons and Kings of Leon." - The Vinyl District
"Raleigh’s freshest blues/rock band" - SPCLGST, Oak City Hustle
"...Jack the Radio is exactly what the local music scene was missing." - Leila Hasemi, The Stagger
"Raleigh’s favorite sons, Jack the Radio, have a pretty solid track record when it comes to delivering solid roots-based alt- country and their latest, Badlands, is no exception. It’s a slow burn album that may take more than one listen to really sink in, but once it does it stays with you." - John B. Moore, Blurt Magazine
"...electric guitar swept country tones that are so robust they’re practically bursting out at the seams." - Erick Mertz,BearedMagazine.com
"Exhibiting southern indie sensibility in spades" - Bucket Full of Nails
