The first full-length recording by the Los Angeles writer and actor.
I can't compare Jack Grapes to anyone, nor find an underlying influence at work. He seems to have absorbed the best of them all and used what he likes to forge his own unmistakable style. Jack Grapes is a writer who can spin magic from everyday English, and who will keep your eyes glued to the very last line.
Grapes writes poems that operate somewhere in the middle ground between pop culture and philosophy.
