Handsome Jack Drops their New EP 'Everything's Gonna Be Alright' Today

Here's what critics have already been saying about Handsome Jack's Everything's Gonna Be Alright:

[9/10 stars] "Great stuff." - Henry Yates, CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

"Handsome Jack sounds like the band that just moved in next door from 1971. The retro-minded trio returns with 'City Girls,' a countrified bit of rock 'n' roll that could have crawled from FM radio in its dawning moments, slithered right out of your speakers and into your record collection. With zero pretention and 100 percent dedication Handsome Jack has built a loyal following with its no frills live shows and songs that speak to the heart of everyone." - Jedd Beaudoin - POPMATTERS

"Handsome Jack's versatility is impressive. With their tight harmonies, and willingness to experiment with tone and beat, they transcend the limitations of a power trio, creating a surprisingly complete album. It rocks in a familiar way but by focusing on songs rather than jams, Handsome Jack have created a genuinely interesting album." - Steven Ovadia, NO DEPRESSION

"Soulful Lockport rockers Handsome Jack new video 'Keep On' is some glorious old school rock'n'roll tomfoolery, with a little cheap Elvis, zonked out Monkees, and Dukes Of Hazzard disregard for the law, DNA gene-spliced onto the jam's seriously dank guitar riffs, bluesy swagger, sweet southern harmonies, and Jamison Passuite's hard living and gritty lead vocals. It's fun and trashy but soulful as hell." - Cliff Parks, BUFFA BLOG

"Sometimes all you really need when you're down about a failing relationship is a straightforward heartbreak song. 'Got It Bad' by Handsome Jack, which we have the pleasure of premiering today, is just that sort of remedy. It's yearning instrumentals and from-the-heart lyrics are all about the bittersweet feeling of being in a dysfunctional relationship and turning a blind eye because as they say, you've just 'got it bad.' - Matt Matasci, MXDWN

"Handsome Jack deliver blues rock with a whole lot of boogie. Their music is powerful and emotional but above all; they bring it with attitude." - BLACK BULL BLUES

"Guitarist Jamison Passuite summons up John Fogerty with his rich and resonant vocal on opening track 'Keep On"; other places he echoes Southern rock and Stax soul. Throw in some Delta blues and the rest of this sure-footed, grooving album doesn't stray far from the inspirational well." - The Barman, I-94 BAR

"... slow burning, hazy retro-garage rock" - Cory Perla, THE PUBLIC

"... make us think more of Muscle Shoals circa 1969 than New York in 2018, and that's just fine by us." - Polly Glass, LOUDER SOUND
