Innovative musician, Al LoJack, was born to create. His unique, diverse sound mingles with influences from a wide-range of artists that were prominent in shaping his raw, universe of possibilities. He credits the music of Jimmy Hendrix, The Allman Brothers, Motown, The Beatles, Jeff Beck, Bruno Mars, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Adele, U2, Green Day, Queen, and a host of other incredible artists for stirring his creative juices and igniting his own internal flame.
Born somewhere here on planet Earth and raised along the sandy coastlines of Miami Beach, LoJack was engulfed by the beauty of hard beach bodies, swaying palms, cool breezes, and hot muggy nights. This paradise backdrop continues to fuel his compositional themes; however, his music genuinely reflects the lives he’s lived every day. From guitar riffs and lyrics that roughen the soul like those heard in “Marshall,” a silent tribute to a favorite uncle; to a more conceptually weird yet relatable tune “Jack Daniels,” where a drink talks to you as a storm blows through your brain – LoJack’s an artist on the fringe.
There is, however, a lighter side to his intensity; a smooth flavor that listeners can feast on for some no-nonsense emotional boy-girl drama. “Bitch Girl,” “You Don’t Have To Go,” and “Another Man” are all worthy examples that showcase LoJack’s caustic sense of irony while remaining true to his bold, guitar-riff infused signature style.
Al LoJack’s music is like an intricate spectrum of light beams achieving their perfect point within a listener’s ever changing mood. Three clear examples of his cutting-edge compositional range are most evident in “Psycho Submarine,” “Lo Jack,” and “InsanaPop,” – these are mesmerizing and conceptually rich compositions that take the listener on a trip without ever leaving their favorite chair. When asked about these tunes LoJack says, “It’s unintentionally intentional,” and smiles a wicked smile.
With another album on the way, and in the midst of preparing for a new video and some limited tour dates, LoJack says he’s got his “love back” as he grips his favorite guitar.
