Chicago piano man Lucas Jack recently moved to San Antonio, and we can thank him for that. More Billy than Elton, he shares with both a penchant for well-crafted melodies and solid playing. But his singing is what sets him apart — a smooth tenor further enhanced by Mack Damon’s spotless production. This is a near-perfect pop album filled with top-notch original songs from a guy you need to follow. Catch Jack live every Wednesday at The Angry Elephant, every second Thursday at Hooligans, and random Tuesdays at 502 Bar. And screw cover songs — make sure you ask him to play his own material.
