Two worlds collide on April 14 as Jack Daniel’s brings a piece of its home to yours when Tennessee comes to town. A special one-off Jack Rocks event will see the cream of Nashville’s musical talent hook up with stars of London’s homegrown rap scene.
Flying over from The Music City are drummer Dominic Billet, usually found touring with singer-songwriters, country singers and folk artists; East Nashville singer-songwriter Joe Pisapia, best known as a member of US indie rockers Guster; and Nashville-dwelling bassists Owen Biddle, a former member of hip hop crew The Roots.
Whether born there or drawn there, the three musicians represent the real Nashville. The city embraces its thriving country music roots but nourishes bands and artists across all genres, just as Mr. Jack did himself a little drive down the road in Lynchburg, Tennessee, when he set up the The Silver Cornet Band in 1892. Since the music has remained in Jack Daniel’s DNA.
Welcoming them to the UK stage is rapper Wretch 32, who rose from the grime scene and release latest album ‘Growing Over Life’ this year. Joining him as support will be fellow north London rapper K Zorro, whose work blends hip hop with contemporary rock, indie and electronic dance music.
Takign place in north London’s iconic small venue Nambucca, the event will see the four artists collaborating on a unique mash-up as stars of two mind-boggingly different scenes smash through the boundaries and combine forces to make something truly special and unique. We don’t know exactly what will happen – but we do know it’s going to be an unforgettable experience.
