My name is Jed MacLean. I am based out of South Austin, TX. My style is heavily piano-driven rock/americana/blues with soulful harmonies and a horn section. My influences range from Miles Davis and Bud Powell, to Ray Charles and Sam Cooke, to the Rolling Stones and Zeppelin, to James Booker, Professor Longhair and Dr. John. The list goes on and on. The closest thing to which I can compare this project is a modern take on the Joe Cocker/Leon Russell band from Mad Dogs and Englishmen and, so I've been recently been told, with a hint of a Tori Amos vibe on some songs.
