AMERICANA BAND JD & THE STRAIGHT SHOT’S
ALL-ACOUSTIC ALBUM

“GOOD LUCK AND GOOD NIGHT” IS OUT NOW

LOS ANGELES, CA – Americana band JD & The Straight Shot released its vibrant sixth studio album Good Luck And Good Night on September 15th. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Jim Dolan, guitarist Marc Copely (B.B. King, Rosanne Cash), bassist Byron House (Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton), violinist/fiddler Erin Slaver (Martina McBride, Rod Stewart) and drummer/percussionist Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow, Levon Helm, Saturday Night Live band), the dynamic group’s all-acoustic record was produced and mixed by Copely (Toby Lightman, Owen Danoff, Upright Man) and engineered by Chuck Ainley (Mark Knopfler, George Strait, Lee Ann Womack) at Soundstage Studios in Nashville.

Influenced by artists such as The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and The Beatles along with traditional Irish folk music and classical music, Good Luck And Good Night delivers a huge sound steeped in the quiet fire of American roots music and the swagger of rock n’ roll.

Music Matters Magazine raves “the album captures true folk essence with each track,” Mother Church Pew praises, “Good Luck And Good Night is acoustically cinematic and has a tasty morsel for every kind of musical palate” and The Daily Country enthuses that the album “finds the band expanding their lyricism and refining their sound into what is their best outing yet.”

The sparkling title track featuring a child chorus crescendo, is a thoughtful commentary on the divisive state of news reporting today and Billboard says lead single, “Run For Me,” “channels the thrills of horseracing and an Irish folk-meets-country soundscape.” “Moonlight” entrances with soaring melodies, while the banjo-and-fiddle-driven burner “Ballad Of Jacob Marley” re-tells the tale of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Story about greed and the ability to change. The beauty of Maya Angelou’s words shines in the contemplative “Never Alone” based on her poem “Alone,” the gospel-infused, foot-stomping “Redemption Train” sings of salvation, the melancholy, moving “Tonight” touches on the terrors of domestic abuse and the graceful ballad “I Know, You Know, I Know” addresses the secret passions of love that cannot be.

Good Luck And Good Night boasts two memorable covers including a rousing rendition of the Three Dog Night classic “Shambala” chock full of vocal harmonies, and in homage to friend Glenn Frey, a sweepingly stunning cover of the Eagles’ “It’s Your World Now.”

In addition to The Doobie Brothers and Chicago, JD & The Straight Shot has toured with luminaries like the Eagles, Keith Urban, Don Henley, Dixie Chicks, Jewel, Joe Walsh, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and more. South Florida Insider gushes, “JD & The Straight Shot’s wonderful harmonies make the melodies even sweeter” and their live show is “everything a music lover could want and more.”
