Synopsis

Album Description
The Jack Stafford Foundation is the child of Jack Stafford who fronts the band, sings, writes the songs, manages the band, and designs the clothes, website, tour posters and album artwork. Originally from England, he has lived in Holland for the past 5 years. He first came to fame in England at the age of 18 fronting the pop-punk band ?Menagerie?, alongside bands like Miss Black America and Dawn Parade, helping to start the scene in Bury St. Edmunds that BBC?s John Peel called the new Seattle. At 21, disillusioned with the music business, he left England to travel, taking in America and Cuba, before settling in Amsterdam. He began performing again as a solo singer/songwriter in 2002, before slowly building a band around the new songs he created ? working with some of the best musicians Holland has to offer. The other members of The Foundation are Julien Kummer [keyboards], Jordy Boone [guitar], Paul Willemsen [guitar], Marc Driessen [bass] and Emanuel Wiemans [drums] ? all are Dutch. The single was recorded at the renowned Studio 150 in January (the day after Paul Weller recorded his latest album there). The sound has been described as Electrock: an 80s-influenced infusion, incorporating heavily processed guitars with electronic drums, strings sounds and samples. It?s the first single from their debut album Exes, which will be released at the end of the year.
