"...ahead of the breezy, rhythmic pop wave that now includes Jason Mraz and, of course, John Mayer..." - Dallas Morning News In 1988, Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce, the "Jack O" and "Pierce" who make up the seminal acoustic duo, Jackopierce, were playing cover songs in a dingy club with a crummy PA in their hometown of Dallas, Texas. In a moment of young-musician desperation, they whipped up a tune on the spot called "Three of Us In A Boat" to elongate their set. That became a signature track for a decade-long career wherein the two-piece sold 500,000 records over six albums (two for major label A&M) and toured three continents, nine countries, and 44 states. After a five-year breakup, in 2002 the duo reconvened as Jackopierce. Today Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce have a renewed creative vigor, mutual respect, and deep gratitude for their Jackopierce heritage. These good vibes shine through on JP's euphoric new album, Everywhere All The Time, out August 28. JP's latest, Everywhere All The Time, is a charmingly elegant modern pop-rock record with big hooks and a crisp production aesthetic. It's the most emotionally accessible album of the band's career; it's both warmly playful and vulnerably sincere.
