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.

Debut EP Reason to Exist is a cathartic and hooky expression of the genre, awash with melody and introspection. Rampazzo’s songwriting is both grounded and moving, as the five songs take listeners through themes of insecurity, loss and nostalgia.

Catch According to Jack at Road to Bay Fest, alongside Neck Deep, Descendants and more on June 15th.
