Song of the Month

B L A C K  S W A N  L A N E – beneath the dead leaves

(click play below to hear)

Helloooooo! (As my Italian friend Alessandro would say )
As Fall approaches, this song seemed appropriate.
This is a track that was unfinished and cut off of our seventh release,
Under My Fallen Sky. I’ve remixed it, added a few more guitars to the middle and end and gave the beginning a cleaner start. John Kolbeck and I even created a 1:30 acoustic version that was going on the last album, but was consequently cut because it just didn’t fit well with the other tracks. 
Apologies for being away for a while, but I’ve had my share of health issues and injuries again. One day I will learn how to take proper care of myself! I’ve also tentatively decided that we have one more album in us, so I’ve also been quite busy in the studio creating new music. 
This track is dedicated to all of my friends who have messaged me tackling life issues, depression and deep loss. It’s hard to properly write everyone back daily, but please know I truly empathize with your life’s daily struggles. Hopefully, this track will give you all a brief smile… j xx

Jack this song is beautiful…. I remember the video on youtube and was hoping it would be on the new one… hopefully it will make the next one. You and John keep writing from the heart… it is felt by all of us who love you guys!! BSL puts out music you can feel and relate too in a very deeply emotional way. Thanks for giving us all the gift of your music and talent…. and friendship 🙂 Best wishes for 2012 <3


Keep these articles cmiong as they’ve opened many new doors for me.

This song is hauntingly brilliant – almost addictive. This simply must feature on a future BSL project…or else!

Francesca Barreh

As usual, Fabulous….. Love you Kind Heart…


As a BSL fan, this new material is nothing short of expected, as you simply do not disappoint; can’t wait for a new recording! I live on a steady diet of BSL and get quite hungry without it, so keep it coming…
Thanks and get well soon!

p.s. any chance Mark Burgess will lend his vocals to your new project?


Sorry to hear you’ve lost a friend. It is hard to take and causes all these questions, such as are asked in the song, which is really besutiful.

Lynn Burns

this new song remains in the graceful spirit of Black Swan Lane… (maybe even stronger than “Dust” or “Stranger”)
How can we be disappointed, one moment ?
We’ve not finished to smile in 2017 below the musical sun of Jack and his acolyts…


You never disappoint. This is fantastic.
