Singer songwriter and master keyboardist/pianist Jack Spann has worked with some big names in the music business, most notably David Bowie whom Spann spent time with working on what ultimately became Bowie’s Blackstar release. Aside from a sought-after musician in the studio and on stage, Spann has also logged time performing on Broadway including Hank Williams’ Lost Highway and War Horse, and performed at SXSW and Milwaukee’s Summer Fest.

Spann’s original songs are soaked in blues, country and rock that are simultaneously thought provoking yet wildly entertaining. Known for his impossibly fast hands on the keyboard, Spann is a storytelling songsmith with a warm vocal tone that perfectly balances out the ferocious piano playing reminiscent of Fats Waller, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis.
