I LIKE IT BETTER HERE - MORE MUSIC FROM HOME
When Jack Tempchin, legendary songwriter for the Eagles, (Already Gone, Peaceful Easy Feeling), Johnny Rivers (Slow Dancing) and Glenn Frey (Smugglers Blues, You Belong To The City), first heard Swedish act Citizen K, he was so impressed by the vocal, instrumental and arranging skills, that he offered a new unreleased song, right there on the spot.
You Only Live Once is the opening track to I Like It Better Here – More Music From Home (the 2nd album to celebrate the joy and and magic of home), where Citizen K and two of his musical buddies are calling themselves the Smashing Tempchins, as a humble homage to one of their favorite songwriters.
Where the first volume had more of a westcoast-focus, this second volume has more of a americana/country/roots-feeling.....

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
