Jack’s Basket Room

Jack’s Basket Room is an Americana band from Helsinki, Finland. Some say that Jack’s Basket Rooms debut album “Welcome To”, that was released in late 2017, takes you to a journey which begins from a dusty bar in Tennessee and continues through the Caribbean nights straight into the Mexican cemetery, “Caribbean-Blues”. Be that as it may Jack’s Basket Rooms influences lean heavily into American roots music and you can find tones of Alt-Country, Blues, Folk, Pop and Rock & Roll from their music. The Band was formed in 2015 and has now 6-8 members. On the beginning of 2018 JBR is going to studio to record some new material. Near future plans include doing lots off shows and releasing new music. So stay tuned.

GOT A MESSAGE FROM THE MASTERING ENGINEER – 10.8.2017

Debut album is being mastered and the message from the mastering engineer put a smile on our faces.

“I have downloaded your files. I have NEVER listened to a client’s work in its entirety prior to working on it simply because I’m too busy. But this time around, I listened to the first song and thought: “Wow, this is great”, then the next one, then the third one and so on and before I knew it I was listening to the full album front to back at once. Great album. Loving the singer and her amazing voice. Will make sure to give you some great sounding masters.”
