"Americana Singer Jackson Melnick Prepares To Release Debut Album"

Colorado native Jackson Melnick is getting ready to release his debut album Notes From Slate River, ’01 out digitally March 15 via Highwall Records. Physical copies will be available April 1.

Melnick grew up spending time out west, going on to live on a cattle ranch during his college years. The mountainous landscape works itself into Melnick’s songs, which, at times, have a small-town vibe.

Melnick teamed up with award-winning producer and engineer Brian Charles to create the record. The album also stars several of Melnick’s Nashville-based friends. The album features eight original tracks and a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Snowin’ on Raton.”

“Whenever possible I ask questions… While I wouldn’t go so far as to say these songs contain profound truth, these songs did come out of a quietude or desperate honesty and offered me a vision,” says the Americana singer. “But actually applying that vision to the life I live, that remains a humbling experience.”

Melnick is planning a tour for the summer in promotion of his new album. Dates have not been announced yet. - American Songwriter Magazine

Bio

Jack Gwydion (ne Jackson Gwydion Melnick) lives to sense the beating heart of poetry and has long admired musicians with small-town sincerity and big-world humanity. Gwydion promotes a generosity of spirit that speaks to the timeless mysteries of the heart.

Gwydion's debut LP At the Foot of Heart's Mystery (Out October 30, 2017) is being put out by Boulder, CO based Tipperary Record Co., and brings together some of the country’s finest young bluegrass and Americana musicians. He already made a splash with his self-released version of the record, which garnered praise from American Songwriter Magazine, "the mountainous landscape works itself into [his] songs". 

Gwydion writes, "My songs have to do with the cultivation of the heart. There is always a revelation—not so much an answer, but the absolution of a need for one, a deepening of commitment to the heart."

Now touring nationally with his five pieced band, Jack Gwydion is a name destined to remain in the Americana lexicon.
