4 Star Review

 

A terrific Americana album... Listening to Bear Bones is certainly a fulfilling experience. What’s immediately  striking are Cade’s vocals, which are exemplary. When you combine that with songs really standing out, you’re onto a winner, especially when the musicianship is very, very good... ...make no mistake, Cade has created a stellar album.

Americana UK - Mike Elliott


Jack Cade will never be accused of having a golden throat. Imagine Kris Kristofferson in a heated argument with Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, and Johnny Cash. If it helps, or just for fun, picture the gigantic yellow bear head that graces the cover of his second solo album, ‘Bear Bones,’ as the singer of the songs within. Once you get it, though, you’ll be glad you stuck around, because ‘Bear Bones’ is one captivating listen...

...‘Bare Bones’ is not so much a departure for Cade as it is an evolution. He’s learned to channel the dark and acoustic tones of his earlier work into a more accessible sound, yet it remains raw and powerful. By making many of these songs rock-based and hook-heavy (and the songs stay with you long after the album’s over), Cade has guaranteed his music will reach a wider audience without compromise – every artist’s ultimate dream.

Folk and Tumble - Gerry McNally

 

Bear Bones’ has a great alt-country sound that mixes good rocking tunes with laid back poignant melodic Americana. Cade has a voice that sounds like the illegitimate offspring of Johnny Cash and Tom Waits, and his strong personal lyrics show empathy with everyday feelings and situations. While sounding deceptively bleak at times, the record delivers an upbeat message of hope and encouragement. Such is the quality and depth of the songwriting and music on this record it could be described as Cade’s very own ‘Nebraska’.

A Thoughtful and Visionary Look at Life, Love and the American Way...

RnR Magazine - Neil McLeod

 

Delivered in vocals that sound like they belong to a grizzled veteran bar singer who has just gargled with whiskey and broken glass before taking to the stage in a Nashville tavern, the voice actually hails from North Kent and has stopped of in Reading en route to his current home in Brighton. Cade uses his real-life English experiences of economic decline and unemployment and marries it to the various musical tropes of mythic Americana, full tales of hard-won victories over life’s injustices, redemption, salvation and hope, in the tradition of Cash, Dylan and Waits,

...Cade is niet uit op vernietiging, maar kiest voor de schoonheid van de muziek. In ‘Dust’ zit de zanger in de eigen huiskamer en observeert kleine gebeurtenissen. It’s nothing more than dust. De luisteraar vindt schoonheid in een nummer van Cade. Trok Cade in vroegere jaren de fan naar zijn onderwerpen, naar zijn persoonlijke frustraties, op Bear Bones is er ook de rust, mag er genoten worden van de muziek.

Whisperin' and Hollerin' - Martin Raybould

 

Cade’s gravelly baritone would be well suited to songs of raw-edged nihilism yet these ten new tunes present a man on the side of those who are more sinned against than sinning. Despite sounding like whiskey and cigarettes form the basis of his diet, he errs more towards tender than tough.

Robs Raw Music - Rob Hurley

 

I love an album that's diverse and Bear Bones delivers on diversity,sometimes you think you're walking down a street full of bars,the next you're in a spaghetti western then you're transported to your porch on a rocking chair just chilling with a beer and the sound of nature.

I've had the album on a continuous listen since receiving it a few weeks back and every listen just gets better and better.you discover something different,something new and something unique.

Fatea - Mike Davies

 

...he kicks off with the midtempo Kristofferson-ish 'He Lies On His Side' (thereby prompting the lyric "he don't know which way to turn"), subsequently channelling Cash for his delivery of Dust, echoing John Stewart on the anthemically muscular 'Who Will Be The First To Fall' and Springsteen /Warren Zevon with 'She Got Something To Say.

The latter's one of the heavier, more muscular and rockier numbers, an approach only revisited on album closer, Stripped (from whence the album title comes), otherwise this is more acoustic and ballad focused, highspots coming with the dobro-shaped 'When You Come Running' and the simple fiddle-waltzing strum of 'Four Letter Word, another echo of Cash in its cowboy campfire tones.

Shakedown Reviews

RnR Magazine - Peter Tomkins - 'Shakedown' - 5 Stars

A melting point of jazz, country and soul like taking a walk down Bourbon Street, drinking in the sounds from all the bars and juke joints.

Penny Black Music - Steve Kinrade

 

'Shakedown' is a great introduction to the Everyday Sinners, and Cade’s distinctive voice in particular. It is a collection of thought-provoking well crafted songs, superb musicianship, and energy a plenty. But on further, deeper listening, it unveils itself as something of a protest record with astute social commentary, all wrapped up in some damn fine tunes. So it works on both levels, aiming for a shakedown that contemporary society, the world over, desperately needs. Guys, you have a new fan

Folk And Tumble - Gerry McNally

 

Like Woody Guthrie before him, Jack Cade pulls no punches in his social commentary of current events.

Utilising their various talents, they’ve delivered a full-blown album of guitar driven passionate country rock music that combined with Cade’s gravel edged voice gives the listener a truly unique experience.

Folking.com - Mike Wistow

 

The style is vibrant, by turn driving drums, what was recently described to me as the down-and-dirty sound of a dobro, the rhythm guitar of protest songs, almost barroom keyboards and Cade’s vocal – Cash/Kristofferson meets Slipknot. You can’t help but enjoy this music.

Adobe and Teardrops - Rachel Cholst

 

The songs borrow heavily from protest music of the 19th century, linking the struggles of our great-great-grandparents against the Industrial Revolution (and capitalism as we know it) to the fight against austerity measures today.

No Depression - Rachel Cholst

 

The Everyday Sinners proudly marches in a long and distinguished lineage of British protest music that combine celebration with hard truth. The chug-a-lug of the bass and nimble rhythm guitars throw back to American roadhouses and gospel churches, but the lyrics are staunch reminders to hurl yourself against corruption.

Real Roots Cafe - Jaks Schuit - NL

 

Is het folk? Is het rockabilly? Is het country? De muziek Van The Everyday Sinneres leidt tot deze vragen. De liedjes van het gezelschap uit Brighton zijn moeilijk in een hokje te plaatsen. Het beste antwoord is het product The Everyday Sinners een mix te noemen van folk, rockabilly en country. Voeg daar een lik swampblues aan toe en de muziek van album Shakedown is voldoende geëtiketteerd.

Roots Time - Jaks Schuit - BE

 

In de reeds verschenen recensies van “Shakedown” wordt her en der verwezen naar de vergelijkbare sound van Tom Waits, vermengd met de baritonstem die we vooral kennen van Johnny Cash. Wij zijn het daar niet helemaal mee eens, want wij willen eerder een eigenheid toeschrijven aan de muziek van ‘The Everyday Sinners’, een geluid dat wat ons betreft zeer herkenbaar en ook uniek lijkt te zijn.

Murder of  Crows Reviews

Jack Cade makes a virtue of a voice so raw that it almost makes Johnny Cash seem operatic and Dylan the voice of an angel
 
AmericanaUK.com

R2 Magazine - Jeremey Searle

 

The musical accompaniment is minimal, allowing Cade's voice to fill the ether in a manner that recalls American masters of the murder ballad like Cahalen Morrison and Eli West. But rather than simply re-creating an American style Cade's  subjects and music are absolutely English.

Fatea Magazine - Tony Wilding

 

12 songs often staring into dark abyss of loss, death, possession, depression, murder and drugs...rise from the depths in the knowledge that each song is in reality a diverse lesson on life's challenges, compassion resting at the heart of the recording, showing example of better times ahead.

Americana UK - Michael Farley


If distinct is what you are after then Jack Cade has it in spades. From the moment he opens his mouth on the opening track "Yella Green Grass" you realise that convention is out of the window. Songs are delivered in a deep growly drawl with Cade making a virtue of a voice so raw that it almost makes Johnny Cash seem operatic and Dylan the voice of an angel

Give It A Spin

 

Jack Cade is like a ballsy raid of larynx fire! 

Where good is fragile and weeps in gospel existence, bad howls and redemption sparkles in countrypolitan territories. Chemistry of the greatest folklore beasts, are in the genes of his creations.

This Fiery Road Reviews

'Rebel' Rod Ames at From Under
The Basement 

 

Take about two cups of Johnny Cash add a dash or two of Tom Waits, and a smidgen of the psychobilly or punk roots that began molding him years ago, and you have Jack Cade.

I love this album for so many reasons. It’s honky-tonk or is it? It’s country, or is it? It’s blues, or is it? It continuously keeps the listener guessing. I on the other hand, after hearing the first track, the title cut, “This Fiery Road”, decided not to categorize, but instead, simply enjoy this extremely unique brand of whatever it is.

Amazon.co.uk - Paul Ireland

 

“A strong debut! By Paul Ireland This review is from: This Fiery Road (MP3 Download) The highest complement I can pay this album, is that it is one that I have been playing almost constantly since I have bought it. And the simple reason is because the strengths of "This fiery road.." lie in well crafted simple songs. All are beautifully arranged and produced, with Cade's band the The Everyday Sinners turning in a masterful performance. There is much to be celebrated here, the hooks on tracks such as Hotter than the Sun will be bouncing around your gray matter sooner rather than later. A particular favourite of mine; The Room could quite comfortably sit on albums by artists such as Lucinda Williams or Paul Currei. Think Eileen Rose sung by Tom Waits and you are on the right lines. Cade has by no means a voice as strong as Waits, but he has some great tunes! All in all, a very enjoyable album.”

'I saw an excellent church sermon recently... well, I didn't know it was going to be a sermon, nor that the venue was going to be a church, until I got there. A man stood on the stage and sang the Truth for half an hour in blazing baritone to ponderous, melancholy guitar. The congregation of teenage indie kids were transfixed, partly by fear. The man was Jack Cade.' by Luke Paulo 2013
