– PopMatters

“With a charming, wistful folk sound and a strong lyrical presence, Greg Jacquin and his band can expect an awful lot of critical acclaim when their new album.”
– The 405

“Greg Jacquin brings unconditional love.”
– Substream Magazine

“Hudson Valley is quite an impressive return to the ‘arena’ for Greg Jacquin and his band’s anticipated full length, due in 2019, will undoubtedly prove to be one of the year’s most compelling indie releases.”
– No Depression

Today, New York-based, indie folk, singer songwriter Greg Jacquin shares his new albumClocks Slow Down, out now on all DSPs. Earbuddy exclusively streamed the record in advance, stating “Recorded at Woody’s House in Croton, New York, the album is a sometimes somber meditation on pain, suffering, and self-discovery. Add a little politics and humor, and you have yourself an album.” Jacquin has announced East Coast tour dates in support of the album, and will be celebrating the release tonight with a performance at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1 at 6pm. See below for all his upcoming dates. Clocks Slow Down is out now on all streaming platforms.

Greg Jacquin and bandmates Paul Griffin (piano, keys, vocals), Rich Berta (guitar, vocals), Peter Wilson (drums) and Lalit Loomba (bass) recorded Clocks Slow Down, a beautiful collection of eleven original songs. The album is a sprawling statement of sadness and hopelessness, pain and suffering, rebuilding and self-discovery, with a dash of politics and humor, too. This time around, Jacquin enlisted another impressive crew of musicians for the album, including Andrew Bordeaux on violin and guitar, Jim Keyes and organ and electric piano and Sarah Browne on vocals. The album was recorded by Fred Gillen Jr. (Pete Seeger) at Woody’s House in Croton, NY, and mastered by Scott Hull (John Zorn, Snarky Puppy, Loudon Wainwright III, Uncle Tupelo, Edie Brickell, Ani DiFranco) at Masterdisk. The album art is by Ian Felice (The Felice Brothers).

All songs were written by Jacquin, eliciting collaboration with a variety of artists and bandmates. “Store Policy” and “Time Again” saw Lalit Loomba & Jacquin team up in their writing process, “Coffee” was written by Greg Jannacone and Jacquin, “Too Hungry For Dinner” and “Highways & Hotels” was written by Paul Griffin.

BIO

From singing and playing guitar as a little kid through writing his songs with his best friend and cousin in the 80s up to the present moment, Jacquin has been contributing to the rich music scene in New York’s Hudson Valley. Drawing on his own life experiences, the natural world, and politics, Jacquin is still out there pouring his heart and soul into every song he releases. His EP Hudson River was released to rave reviews in February 2018.
