Album Review

Jackopierce's 1994 major-label debut Bringing on the Weather is the group's first foray into a full-band, acoustic rock sound, and it is their best collection of songs. Produced by T Bone Burnett (Sam Phillips, Elvis Costello, and O Brother, Where Art Thou), Bringing on the Weather adds percussion and bass, as well as chamberlain, mandolin, and violin, to the previously acoustic guitar duo with surprising results. The songs are the most unified and complex in the group's career. Standout tracks include "Jacob," "Capable Girl," and "Anderson's Luck." Bringing on the Weather reached an artists height that Jackopierce was unable to top before their breakup. Early or long-time fans may prefer the acoustic sounds the duo made while a local Texas college act, but this album is the best introduction to the group and their most accessible album.

Customer Reviews

Great College Album

Everything I can remember about good acoustic and vocal blends during my college days, I listened to this album every morning while getting ready for school, Late Shift and Anderson's Luck were my favorites, but all in all a great album.

My College years explained:

This is probably one of the best bands for just taking an album and listening to it cover to cover.. Before their breakup I was able to see them live. They were actually an opening act for someone and they drew more attention then the headliner. Great band.. Great experience..

One of the three to buy

One of the three JackOPierce albums to buy, although I rank the self-titled album and Woman as Salvation slightly above it because they have some of the stronger songs, this album might be the most complete and connected of the three as a whole. Forces, Weather, Iron john, Anderson's Luck, and Witch in the Old Man are all fantastic songs. And I agree with the other reviewers who said this is a great college album - JackOPierce is all about the nostalgia of college for me. Good times.


Formed: 1988 in Dallas, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

One of the hardest-touring bands of the '90s, Jackopierce slipped under the mainstream's radar to earn a widespread following on college campuses with their pleasant acoustic folk-pop. Guitarists/singers Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce founded the duo in 1988, while both were attending Southern Methodist University in Dallas as theater majors. Honing a charmingly simple, low-key sound centered around vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars, the two developed a strong local following around the Dallas area....
