His achievements include co-writing fun.’s Grammy award-winning song “We Are Young” and Grammy-nominated album “Some Nights,” and he received a Golden Globe nomination for his collaboration with Taylor Swift on her song “Sweeter Than Fiction.” Jack has also worked with Sara Bareilles, co-writing her Grammy-nominated hit “Brave,” and Canadian indie icons Tegan and Sara. Jack is set to release the debut album for new project Bleachers later this spring.
Wild Cub
Wild Cub formed in early 2012 when songwriter/composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock stripped down a small Nashville row house to build a custom studio. In this space, and together with friend and drummer/producer Dabney Morris, they would record and eventually form a five-piece band around their debut albumYouth. The album saw a remastered wide release – including two bonus tracks, “Blacktide” and “Lies,” the latter produced by Jim Eno (Spoon) – through Mom+Pop on January 21, 2014. Wild Cub has performed rising single “Thunder Clatter” onLate Night with Jimmy Fallon and will make their Conan debut on April 10th, and has appeared on the pages of The New York Times, Billboard, Alternative Press, and MAGNET, among others. Following a January/February US headlining tour that saw multiple sold-out shows, Wild Cub’s busy 2014 will continue with dates supporting American Authors and then Vampire Weekend this spring and additional summer festivals.
