We are Headband Jack and we began playing together in the spring of 2011 playing a modern and original blend of roots, folk, hillbilly blues and swamp rock styles.  We are launching this Kickstarter project to help us finish our first album, Big Dipper.

Big Dipper was recorded at Edie Road Studios in rural New York State by Grammy Award nominated engineer, Marc Fuller. The album ranges from harmony rich, storytelling folk ballads owing to our origin as an acoustic duo, to whiskey fueled roadhouse anthems. Also venturing into progressive folk, with a healthy dose of honkytonk rock, Big Dipper has been self-produced up to this point.

We need your help to pay for mixing, mastering, printing and in exchange, we are making some wonderful merchandise to deliver to you along with our record.  We appreciate you viewing our project, even if it's just to check us out.  We'd like to thank you and everyone else who has helped us along the way.

Love,

Headband Jack (Zack, Abigail, Mark, Bryan, Heather, Colin, Judson)
