Jack Korbel, based out of Ohio, is a musician-turned-writer-turned-musician who endeavors to capture a little literature in all his tunes. He names a broad base of influences: folklore and folk music from Ireland to Appalachia, the lives of saints and fools, and a fascination with the misfortunes of human history. Setting out regularly from his current home in Wichita, Kansas, Jack plays in pubs, cafes, private homes, and college and university campuses both West and East of the Mississippi. About his craft and style, Jack believes thoughtful music fosters thoughtful community.
