Acadie Truck is available as a pay whatever you want download on Bandcamp and on all the virtual streaming platforms

Acadie Truck, Saint-Jack's sophomore EP, looks at the segment of life where one's motor overheats. After fixing his broken heart on Birmingham, this time, he looks into injuries one carries throughout a lifetime, like depression (Madame), anxiety (Fuck off, l'anxiété) and alcohol abuse (Quincaillerie Blues). Somewhere between americana and punk, with a folk rock intention, Saint-Jack is as funny as he is tragic, while getting rid of any filters possible to deliver these songs. 

Fronted by JE Sheehy, an overachieving veteran of New-Brunswick's music scene, Saint-Jack is his personal outlet. Since the launch of his debut EP last November, he played everywhere from Ottawa to Petite-Vallée, with stops in Halifax and Montreal, in coffee shops, bars, pubs, basements and theaters, including a songwriting residency in Gaspésie. 

Acadie Truck opens up a new chapter for Saint-Jack, as a way to change gears, before driving into 2018. With shows booked in 2018 on Canada's east coast, he's also finishing up writing his debut album. To be continued, in sadness, but also with a little bit of fun.
