Jack Debuts at FAR WEST PREMIERE SHOWCASE ON 10/23
"Although forever branded as the guy who wrote 'Peaceful Easy Feeling', veteran songwriter songwriter Jack Tempchin has a massive songbook by now, as heard at the Maverick Saloon on Wednesday.
(Mr. Tempchin) has maintained his creative discipline and renewed his songwriting fervor with an ambitious project he calls "Song a Day", with the results posted on humble video demos posted on You Tube at: http://www.songadayjournal.com
In a way, those few ink-still-wet tunes heard on Wednesday- "Lovers Like Us" and songs about religious warring and a witty ditty about collecting women named Amy were high points, proof of ongoing artistic vitality." -JOSEF WOODARD Santa Barbara News Press

Clearly, songwriting is his life's direction.
"I tried quitting," he says. "It seemed like a good idea, but I'm giving up on that."
Many songwriters are unsung heroes. Many write award-winning lyrics, but remain in the shadows. However, hitmaker Jack Tempchin doesn't fall into any of these categtories. Tempchin, a vessel for sun-soaked messages and slow, mellow rhythms, manages to stay in the forefront, a lyricist with a passion for performing. With hits like "Peaceful, Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone," he blazed a trail for easy-listening country rock and has been penning timeless, sterling tunes ever since...
Jack Tempchin remembers buying his first harmonica at Ozzie’s Music in San Diego at the height of Bob Dylan’s influence as a performer and songwriter. Along with other influences, Jack found himself writing his own songs, including several that have become standards in popular music during the 1970s and 80s...
