Legendary songwriter, JACK TEMPCHIN, is set to release his 13th studio album, More of Less, via Blue Élan Records on June 14, 2024. Tempchin collaborates with producer Jeff Larson after connecting at an America concert last year. Over the last 50 years, Jack has written for the Eagles, George Jones and Emmylou Harris along with so many more.  Some of the hit songs Jack has penned include; “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Slow Dancing,” “The One You Love,” “Already Gone,” “Someone That You Used to Know,” “White Shoes” and who can forget, “You Belong To The City” and “Smuggler’s Blues” from the Miami Vice TV soundtrack. His illustrious body of work was honored with his induction into The Songwriters Hall of Fame in June 2019.

The inception of More of Less spans over the past few years, with its title track taking root during the tumultuous period of the 2020 shutdown. Reflecting on this time, Tempchin recounts finding solace in the simple pleasures of life, spending countless hours by the beach, serenading the sea with melodies known only to him. “We were all isolated and I started going to the beach, all day every day, sitting on the cliff overlooking the ocean playing music that no one else could hear,” explains Tempchin. “A lot of the busy complications of life fell away and were replaced by simpler more beautiful things, like the music and the sea and the sky.  I got happier and wrote this song to remind myself that More of Less can be a wonderful way to go.”

Tempchin is also venturing into the realm of cinema with an exclusive one-night-only premiere screening of Tempchin’s captivating movie, Midnight Jack The Movie will take place in Los Angeles on June 20th at Laemmle Royal Cinema in Westwood. Described as “...a voyage through the realms of dreams and memories with a pleasure hungry seeker of the truth,” the film is a combination of comedy, philosophy and music and has folks raving. Having sold out several pre-release screenings in Tempchin’s hometown of San Diego, the film has already received an IndieFEST Film Award.
