Blues Rock review gives the new album "Mean Machine" a 9/10 Nashville-based alt/blues rocker, Jack Berry, premieres his sophomore album to wide approval. "An intoxicating blend of rock and blues." (Consequence of Sound) Berry’s gritty rock has garnered acclaim from Blues Rock Review (Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2013, #2 album of 2013) and The Deli Magazine (Top Ten Nashville Artists to Watch, 2015) as well as being featured in showcases by American Songwriter Magazine, No Country for New Nashville and Lightning 100's artist of the week. Originally from Reno, Nevada, Berry created his first album for a school project while studying in Los Angeles. After performing along the West Coast in a duo, Berry decided that he was meant for a career in music and relocated to Nashville. After several months of sleeping on a couch and working to catch the attention of the local press, Berry’s “ample supply of good hooks and riffs” (Nashville Scene) eventually gained the praise of critics throughout Nashville and beyond, earning him spots at well- known festivals, including CMA Fest, North by Northeast in Toronto, New York City’s CMJ Music Marathon and SXSW’s Red Gorilla Festival. Since then, Berry has logged dozens of shows from Nashville to New York City. He most recently appeared and won at Hard Rock Rising’s Battle of the Bands. Mean Machine is poised to serve as Jack Berry’s breakthrough record and its first single 'The Bull' has already played as 102.9's Buzzcut of the Week. (The Buzz)
