In an age of genre-fluidity and artists taking influence from a dexterous array of musical backgrounds, According to Jack’s minimalist approach makes for a refreshing listen.

The solo project of Northern Italy native Giacomo Rampazzo, According To Jack is a frank and accessible nod to 90’s West Coast punk.

Rampazzo was raised on the formative sparks of skate punk coming out of California before the turn of the millennium, and it’s clear to see in his delivery; intimate, infectious and heartfelt.

“Reason To Exist” is According to Jack’s latest effort, a cathartic and hooky expression of a genre that takes many forms, but one that celebrates the simple, the heart and the soul of punk music.
