The best kept secret in music


"Stock is a prized commodity"

Jack Stock loves to make music and share it with his friends, as he did at The Hitching Rail in Asbury Park two weeks ago. Stock recently appeared at the Stone Pony, is no stranger to The Broadway Central Cafe in South Amboy, frequents the hub city of New Brunswick and can be seen on public access TV stations in Staten Island, New York City and Princeton, NJ. Quite frankly, he's one of the area's essential artisans. - Night and Day

"Jack Stock: The Man, The Enigma, The Rainman with Mojo"

Is he merely a carefree guitar-toting regular Joe, just another slightly eccentric musician proving his bones, or actually a purely original voice that is truly out of time?<br><br>Kicking off with the title cut "Light of the Moon," Stock's solid baritone and melodic but basic guitar quickly set the tone for this tale of love gone wrong, as angelic female backing vocals propel Jack's story in a great arrangement that floats this song up to the heavens like the opening door to Jack's world of passion and redemption.<br>Another crowd pleaser, the gently uplifting irony of "High Side" comes off as a great early morning or wee-hours ditty. You can't help but sing along with Jack as he croons his way towards Mecca:"If I'm gonna get screwed, I wanna be kissed!"<br>Jack Stock sings about livin' free and easy through the pain and glory and finding and losing love among the low and the mighty.<br>Sometimes he uses a sauntering jazz/pop style, like the Burrito Brothers and Vic Chestnutt mee the Tijuana Brass. Overall, though it's tempting to call him a folk/pop and lounge into his own hybrid that's led by acoustic guitar which always leaves you tapping or clapping along. His easygoing yet assertively masculine pipes carry the song "Old Times" for comfort's sake, reminding you how good old-fashioned crazy love can be.<br><br>The jaunty "Rebel Boys" glides and saunters with a breezy, blues/country hook that vamps it up "down in Dixie with Tammy Jean," as you lean in close to hear the vocal interplay between Jack and Sara on a track that just ambles through your ears like butter.<br>
Other highlights: the pop/Tex-mex-tinged "Booboo" and "My Heart She's On Fire" another Stock anthem where he sounds like a grittier Neil Diamond with Randy Newman's vision, because hey, Jack's lyrical world is real and to himself remains soul deep. Indeed. Sometimes the originals don't shout it from the rooftop and don't have to, because you'll recognize Jack Stock when you hear him. - Aquarian Weekly

"Jack Stock/Light of the Moon"

As amiable and down-to-earth aas anyoneyou're bound to meet at a local open mic. It's been said that there's no stage on which Jack Stock won't perform and no song request he won't attempt at least once. <br>That warmth, honesty, openness, enthusiasm and refreshing desire to simply "entertain" translates well in the studio, as Stock's Randy Newman-meets-John Hiatt-warm voice, dry wit and slightly warped world-skew combine with ace accompanists Antar Goodwin(bass), George Stock(drums), Chris Dubrock(trumpet), Shelly Mitchell(sax,flute) vocalist Sarah Lahely and producer Mike Grau on one of the most smooth, mature, listenable and fully realized local releases to be shrink-wrapped in ages. - Aquarian Weekly

"Putting a lot of Stock in Jack"

Lots of famous people come down on Thursdays. The Pope came down last week. It's true he's on his last legs and will probably, keel over at any second, but before he drops off he wanted to see Jack Stock. I really can't blame him. The Pope speaks seven languages but he doesn't play guitar. - NJ Coast News

"Jack Stock"

High energy, excitement, and fabulous original songs. The Resident Broadway Central Artist/Shore singer/songwriter is the most exciting thing to happen to Rock and Roll in some time. We are thrilled when Jack takes time off from his gigging in New York, and on the Jersey Shore to come light up the stage and TV-screens of Central New Jersey. - Cafe Improv, John Irving
