Jack O’Neill and Cary Pierce, the “Jack O” and “Pierce” who make up the seminal duo Jackopierce, celebrate 25 years of making music that has amassed a loyal following of millions of fans across the country with the release of Live 25 on April 29th on Be Music & Entertainment. The 17-track album, which was recorded during their 25th anniversary show for a crowd of 2,100 people at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas, Texas, is a culmination of a dream come true for the duo. Returning to where it all began to play at one of the most beautiful venues the state has to offer. Live 25 includes fan favorites like “Vineyard,” “Three Of Us In A Boat,” “I Gotta Know,” and “Promise of Summer.”

To toast the duo’s roots, reconciliation, and reinvigoration, Jackopierce closes Live 25 with a brand new song entitled “This Is Our Time” that tells the story verbatim. The song showcases the band’s signature elegant modern pop-rock sound with a great hook and crisp production.

“We wrote this song together on one of our many trips to Nashville where our management, record label and publisher are all located. We're older and dare I say "wiser." We have a new sense of gratitude for each other, the gift of music, and especially our fans that have stuck with us all these year,” said Pierce. “The tag at the end of the chorus says "the stars aligned, this is our time, and we're gonna take it." That's how we feel. We've been given more than second or third chances. We have an incredible fan base that supports what we do, a new record deal and an incredible team of folks behind us in Nashville.”

Jackopierce formed in 1988 playing shows around their hometown of Dallas. The duo steadily made a name for themselves, in particular with the track “Vineyard,” which became a signature track for the band. They released ten studio albums (two for major label A&M), toured three continents, nine countries, and 44 states (often for sold-out crowds), and along the way accumulated millions of loyal fans. Over the years they have shared the stage with artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Alanis Morissette, among others. After a five-year breakup in 1997 the duo reconvened in 2002 as Jackopierce for a sold-out run of shows in TX. Today Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce have a renewed creative vigor, mutual respect, and deep gratitude for their Jackopierce heritage and continue to make music that fans love and newcomers continue to discover. These good vibes shine through on their 25th anniversary live album Live 25.
Salim Nourallah
Salim Nourallah
If a Beatle was left in the desert at age 3 and raised in El Paso, Texas, you’d have Salim Nourallah…He is a North Texas music scene fixture. After gaining initial acclaim with the Denton-based Nourallah Brothers Salim has gone on to release several solo albums and produce a fine list of many others (including the Old 97s, Rhett Miller, Deathray Davies & the Damnwells). His solo debut Polaroid (2004) was met with reviews like this one: “discovering a singer-songwriter who can stop time is rare, but Salim Nourallah is such a find…” (Rolling Stone). Beautiful Noise followed in 2006 to more critical acclaim and he swept the Dallas Observer music awards with Best Album/Best Song and Best Producer. Salim has gone on to win 5 consecutive Observer Awards for Best Producer. His 6th solo cd, Skeleton Closet, was released in August 2015. Skeleton Closet garnered more favorable press like "It’s this masterful balance of the said and the unsaid, the hook and the unexpected kicker that set Salim Nourallah. Skeleton Closet is like a good novel, full of implications and shadowy contradictions and complexities. ”
