    Jook Bourke
Genre: Blues, Acoustic
Region: Southeast US

   Description     Biography     Influences   
Contemporary Acoustic blues with a bit of humor, a bit of pain and a lot of life experience.

Jook’s songs are built on the blues tradition with modern influences. It features smooth soulful vocals, full of subtleties and rich textures that can pull you into the songs.

The fingerpicking style guitar and bottleneck style of slide blend with the lyrics and melodies to create a rich full sound that belies the fact that the tracks are mostly a single guitar and vocal. The songs on are a modern evolution of roots blues music blended with elements of jazz, country and folk music.

earBuzz Review:
Jook Bourke's album "Just a Minute" moves into a vocal area that is in line more with pop than his blues based 'Redhead. .' record. The title-track has a Philly R&B groove to it - with acoustic drum kit, strings, and signature acoustic guitar that seems to paint most of his music. Bourke's vocals here have the opportunity to caress phrases and show off his gentle vibrato and phrasing well. Bourke still blueses the listener with "Area Code 212" with harmonica, guitar, and drum support. The song has a deeper production value and reverb chamber on vocals is intact. Bourke sings, 'i sold my car for a couple years of subway fare. .there's more hours in a day in New York. .this city, she has style'. Bourke launches into honky-tonk blues with "Hot Pepper Sauce", his tribute to the bottled-spicy-liquid. Jook sings, 'i like it hot, hot pepper sauce is the cure for anything that's bland, but never rub your eyes if you get it on your hands, cause it'll burn you'. Practical advice with grooving guitar, harp, and rhythm. Bottle-neck blues survives on the record in "Sometimes I just Need to Feel this Way". Bourke explains that he doesn't need help - his depression is welcome and necessary. Lucky for us those 'feelings' work into music that shines dark and personal.
