Noah Wilson A distinct voice, interesting chord progressions, and unobtrusively complex time changes. Smart pop songs that can be enjoyed by musicians and non-musicians alike. Favorite track: Thelonious Monk & John Coltrane.

about

Reviews:

“…a sunny escape, an oasis of happiness, a celebration of music so joyful that it’s impossible to resist to these infectious melodies.”
- POPNEWS (France)

“brimful of glorious harmonies…good Beatles-ish keyboards, McCartney-esque vocals and a feelgood sensibility.”
- Jackie Hayden, HOTPRESS (Ireland)

About Jack and The’:

Jack and the’ is a pop project led by Julien Lonchamp, a Frenchman in exile in Edinburgh. Vacation (a pop manifesto), Jack and the’s debut album, was written during Julien’s unfortunate PhD in food science in Dublin. Swapping research on lettuce and cabbage aromas for orchestration and sound engineering, he then proceeded to record the album, which was subsequently mixed by the crème de la crème of French pop: Orwell, Variety Lab and Cascadeur. Originally released in Thailand by the Smallroom Records, Vacation is now getting a UK release on Folkwit Records in June 2012.

The idea behind Vacation was to combine catchy melodies with elaborate orchestrations and song structures, creating a new sound, somewhere between pop, chamber music and jazz. Live-wise, the band performs as a quartet (vocals/guitar, flute, bass and drums) and is regularly accompanied by members of the Apostrophe Ensemble (clarinet, trombone, violin, cello). The band has extensively played in Ireland, Scotland and France, alongside the likes of the High Llamas, Orwell, Republic of Loose and Housse de Racket. Jack and the’ is also behind a series of concerts in Edinburgh named Pop Exchange, in which they invite another band from the pop sphere for a gig which culminates in an impromptu musical collaboration!
