Jack McMahon is a rare treasure.
a day when adolescent enthusiasm is too often confused with musicianship, Jack
McMahon stands out as an artist of integrity. From his formative years in New York's
Greenwich Village, through his early professional experiences opening for Bruce
Springsteen and Steely Dan, Jack McMahon has always given music priority over
image and antics.
with a wonderfully warm, resonant voice, Jack was the preferred demo singer of
Gerry Goffin (of Goffin-King fame), and several other New York songwriters. In
the early '70s Jack began writing his own songs and recorded them for Columbia
Records. After his contract with Columbia Records expired, Jack came to the
Northwest. Since that time he has continued to thrill audiences, not only with
his great voice, but with precise guitar playing and finely crafted songs as
well. That's why Oregonian music critic John Wendeborn called Jack "...one
of the best on the west coast...", and why The Cowboy Angels recorded
Jack's song "When The Rain Came Down".
