A New Release From: Jack Berry
Jack Berry is a sweet abomination of an artist. Combining elements of hip hop and surf rock plus a healthy dose of auto-tune, his new tune Private Show is a catchy, well textured, guitar driven stomper. It's his first release and we hear there's more to come.
Jack Berry is the moniker of Dunedin based musician Damin McCabe. Damin broke onto the scene earlier this year after winning OUSA’s battle of the bands competition playing live interpretations of his recorded tunes with his ‘Jack Berry Band’. They’ve gigged hard (I implore you to see them live) and rose to prominence amongst the student crowd as an energetic and damn boppy live act.
Private Show was written by Damin and recorded and produced with his drummer Nick Alexander in their bedroom studio. For a city renowned for the grittier, post-punk sound of the the Flying Nun heydays of the 90s, Private Show is an intriguing yet welcomed release. Damin references the internet’s wave of laptop producers as inspiration for his tunes.
So treat your ears and let Jack Berry take you on a errr, Private Show, if you know what I mean...
