The Jackstones are Andy Machin, guitar and vocals, Rick Lorenzini, Keyboard, Guitar and vocals, Kevin Walker, drums, and Bjorn DeBoer bass. Bridging the gap between the new country of this decade and the classic rock and blues, The Jackstones create powerful music with compelling artistry and inspiring lyrical content.
Self-described as New Country Arena Rock, the band and songwriters Lorenzini and Machin, take the listener through the highs and misfortunes of nearly everyman on What Brings You Here, the first CD from The Jackstones. From the compelling opening riff of "Breaking Me Down", to the lamented goodbye played out in "Next Time You Amaze Me", The Jackstones paint a rather blurry, yet magnificent, picture of what its like to be forlorned, lost and loved all in this millennium, all at the same moment.
"She Dyed It Red" the first single and video from the band, immediately takes you to that point in ones' life where no is not only the best answer, but the only answer that makes sense. Our heroines role in stark black and white suddenly becomes a vibrant red array of color, and she never looks back.
Love Badly, the follow up to the IMA award winning debut was released in July of 2018 to critical acclaim. A 12 song CD The Jackstones' Love Badly rips forward at full speed, allowing their rock-influenced approach to country to expand and gain momentum of its own on this record, which sees the band refusing to back down from their now trademark daring persona.
