When you experience Jack Remington for the first time you immediately see a seasoned old trouper who has been down all those roads that lead through the big city nightspots and the down-home country Honky Tonks. And along the way nearly fifty years of singing has given him a unique sound and perspective on the world. Jack is a Maverick Texas singer/songwriter who just don't fit anybody's mold. Jack was Americana back before there was an Americana genre. He is a musical chameleon that change voice and style to blend with his material that ranges through country, folk, blues, pop and gospel. Just when you think you have his measure, He'll do something completely unexpected.
Here is Jack, charging off after his dream at a time in life when others would opt for a rocking chair and a pitcher of tea. "I never grew up," he joke's. "It's arrested development."
Over the years Jack has played everything from embassies and elegant country clubs to Texas knife and gun honky-tonks. He has looked down gun barrels and dodged beer bottles. He has had nights when the audience wouldn't leave, stuffing Jack's guitar so full of money that it was muffled. He's sang in the Greenwich Village folk clubs back in the sixties and toured the Pacific with the U.S.O. back during the Viet-Nam war. Jack was signed as a songwriter with Seals and Crofts' Dawnbreaker Publishing in Hollywood in the seventies. Several of his songs were recorded by Nashville artists.
When mainstream country and pop ran off chasing the youth market they left a huge audience behind that doesn't relate to what's on mainstream radio today. These are the people who welcome Jack's originality.
