Biography

From Americana to Prog, no genre is off limits in Cincinnati quartet Jack Burton Overdrive’s (JBO) quest to combine unique storytelling and driving, idiosyncratic instrumentation into a singular blend described as “distinctive and diverse” (CityBeat) and “expansive and gutsy.” (WVXU)

JBO’s first album “Tarbell Street” has been ensconced in Reverbnation’s local indie genre” Top Five” for 3 years, yielding a featured spot on NPR’s “Car Talk” with the song Service Light and frequent rotation on Northside’s Radio Artifact with Rarified Air.

The newest effort from JBO, “Happy to Be Here,”was recorded in 2018 with Ben Cochran of Soap Floats and reflects a more ambitious undertaking, expanding their instrumentation and thematic topic matter to address modern relationships - be they healthy, toxic, imaginary or esoteric.

Whether exploring conflicting media reports over a vanished British spy, the bitter rants of an unreliable narrator to his former muse, or the mystery of a missing blanket, Happy to Be Here addresses cognitive and emotional space in a way only a band with a dog for a logo could pull together.
