Jack Sledge


Jack Sledge is a New Orleans based singer/songwriter originally from Brooklyn, NY. Raised by an Oklahoman and a Texan, his pop suffused southern rock and Americana swings from a tender, crooning falsetto to a muscular, John Fogarty growl. Equally captivating belting anthems with a full band as he is telling of American mythology with an acoustic guitar, Sledge thrives in the space between self-examination and outright entertainment. After releasing five albums with three projects in two cities over six years, Sledge released his first solo EP in 2017. Alabama Snow is a collection of dreamy, acoustic pop songs named for the image of a white crepe myrtle losing its petals. His folk-inspired guitar playing and storytelling blend with his honeyed tenor to gift listeners the breezy shores of Dauphin Island, AL. Totaling four songs and just under ten minutes, Alabama Snow is as bittersweet and fleeting as the last days of summer. Sledge is set to release a live, electric EP this summer. Recorded live in just two days, Hardly Ruined reckons as much with the songwriter as with contemporary America. A genre blending exploration of alienation, survival, fate, and hope, Sledge’s songwriting is as electric as it is soulful.
