Jack Barksdale - EPK
"Barksdale has insights and awareness far beyond people twice his age, and he’s able to put them into songs that touch listeners."
-- American Songwriter
"Barksdale's talent is rare. He shines with earnest, unjaded passion on a foundation of will and an ability to connect."
-- Premier Guitar
"Jack Barksdale is special. The songwriter from Fort Worth plays guitar, mandolin and four other instruments. And if all that weren't impressive enough, the preteen has already released a full-length live album that he recorded at Fort Worth's Niles City Sound. That's the same recording studio where Leon Bridges recorded his two Grammy-nominated albums."
Jack Barksdale is a 15 year old folk/americana singer/songwriter from Texas. Inspired by folk, rock and blues legends Jack started performing original music at the age of nine and has already shared the stage with Wynonna Judd, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Bruce Robison, John Fullbright and Hayes Carll.
Recently Jack launched a podcast focused on songwriters and songwriting called Jack Barksdale's Roots Revival Podcast.
Jack’s latest single “Gone" has garnered well over 700,000 streams on Spotify within weeks of release and has been added to Apple Music’s ‘Southern Craft’ playlist.
In March 2022 Jack released his first full length album "Death of a Hummingbird." In June 2019 Jack released a live album recorded at famed Niles City Sound in Fort Worth, TX and in September 2018, Jack released his debut EP, "Revival."
