Unquestionably a pioneer of true Americana in Scandinavia, Jacques Labouchere’s an American-Swede, based in Gothenburg, whose diy work ethic combined with an impressive body of several hundred live international performances over the years, and release of 2 albums, set him apart from his indie contemporaries.
He is currently touring to support the release of his third album. Jacques has opened for acts such as Arlo Guthrie, Quilt, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Daniel Norgren, Withred Hand and shared the stage with Ken Stringfellow (Big Star) and Jose Gonzalez (Junip).
He has toured both solo and with a band in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Denmark,and also held 3 residencies in NY at Pianos, The Knitting Factory, and The Shrine in Harlem, and played 20+ shows in under a month on NY/Brooklyn alone and all of which he booked himself.
“…every aspect of Labouchere’s life is fair game. It’s a testament to his talent that he manages to make it all come together so seamlessly.” – The Daily News
