What They Are Saying About Jack
“He’s simplistic yet tasty in his delivery and that alone is worth the price of admission”
- Metronome Magazine, New England’s premier music newspaper since 1985
“Shanahan’s boundary-blurring style has been built over the years by simply listening to all styles of music, then absorbing what he liked into his own mix…someone willing to make the leaps from old-timey sounds to thoroughly contemporary settings without so much as a flinch of self-doubt. What happened was a boppy, pleasant ride of a disc. Even in their most sparse arrangements, Shanahan’s songs sound big and catchy.”
- Scott McLennan, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
“…deserves wide spread airplay on “The Rivers” of the World”
- Worcester Phoenix
