Jack Keyes released his amazing track, ”Ferdinand” with sensual intonations that slide on guitar riffs and tumults of soft percussions. Ferdinand feels like a lost entry in the Great American Songbook; it feels worn in, refined, and nostalgic. ”Ferdinand” defies gravity, ignoring time. Distilling folk-sounding curls touch hearts with this delicate song. Jack Keyes reveals the poetry of tender beauty. The singing voice is a piece of art, it’s pure and rich, and the performance is very professional, which shows how talented and skillful he is.

Jack’s musicality is soft-spoken but edgy. His aesthetic is informed by classical guitar, pop, the beat poet tradition, and the inspiration of artists such as The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Nick Drake, and Elliott Smith, among others. Also, hugely impactful to his songwriting and humanity have been his experiences as a 10 th grade writing teacher in Nashville, Tennessee.
