JACK BERRY Biography
Nashville-based alt/blues rocker, Jack Berry, premieres his first single, “The Bull,” via Consequence of Sound from his forthcoming LP, Mean Machine, set for a Spring 2016 release. Berry’s gritty rock sound has garnered acclaim from Blues Rock Review (Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2013, #2 album of 2013) and The Deli Magazine (Top Ten Nashville Artists to Watch, 2015). His song, “Kiss Like,” will also be featured on the sixth season premiere of the Showtime series, Shameless.
Originally from Reno, Nevada, Berry created his first album for a school project while studying in Los
Angeles. After performing along the West Coast in a duo, Berry decided that he was meant for a career
in music and relocated to Nashville. After several months of sleeping on a couch and working to catch
the attention of the local press, Berry’s “ample supply of good hooks and riffs” (Nashville Scene)
eventually gained the praise of critics throughout Nashville and beyond, earning him spots at well-
known festivals, including North by Northeast in Toronto, New York City’s CMJ Music Marathon and
SXSW’s Red Gorilla Festival.
Since then, Berry has logged dozens of shows from Nashville to New York City. He most recently
appeared at No Country For New Nashville’s December showcase in 2015 and earned the runner-up
spot in Hard Rock Rising’s Battle of the Bands. Mean Machine is poised to serve as Jack Berry’s
breakthrough record, so be sure to stay tuned to the Reno-native’s every move!
