"Fit for windows down and burning down the interstate" -Enrique Olmos (Local Spins)
Americana rock band Jack Droppers & the Best Intentions (Grand Rapids, MI) are set to independently release their third record "Dad Rock" on June 18, 2021. The album title holds a double meaning that stems from the birth of Droppers’ first child and apt comparisons to Springsteen and Petty. Through its eleven songs, this record shows many signs of heartland rock while also demonstrating a modern indie roots rock sound that draws comparisons to Dawes, Delta Spirit, and Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit.

There will be plenty of pandemic-inspired records released in 2021, and though this album engages the universally felt restlessness and despair, it also expresses the reality of hope just beneath the surface.
