Bio

Jack R. Reilly lives in-between things. Ironic and earnest. Joyful and melancholy. Past, present and future. Lots of thought but no conclusions. Conclusions require a confidence or certainty about things that skirts too close to dishonesty and Jack R. Reilly is, above all, honest. The tension of being between things is important. Jack R. Reilly very much lives right now- as opposed to a musical project rooted in a more historical aesthetic, but he stands slightly removed from life and culture, observing as much as participating. Jack R. Reilly is solitary, even when surrounded. We want to know what Jack R. Reilly is looking for. Jack R. Reilly is on a quest and journey as much inwardly as anywhere else.

there's a real old school indie vibe running through the veins of this track - digging it so much!

It’s somehow both warm and chilly at the same time – the delicate guitar work and vocals crackling with Jack’s characteristic emotion.
