Jack's latest release is "Day For Night", an 11 song collection of wonderful original songs recorded with some of Portland's finest musicians.


This is Jack's 2007 release "The Man That Love Forgot"

11 new songs from songwriter/singer Jack McMahon's true-life inspired reservoir of heartfelt heartache and joy. Rocking, swinging, folking, funking, crooning, storytelling, and Bucking (RIP) at it's New Jersey meets West Coast via Memphis best. A stylistic journey of thoughtfully reflective reckless abandon.

Featuring Jack McMahon (acoustic guitar, mandolin, keyboard, tamborine, lead and backing vocals) and long-time production partner Ron Stephens (electric & acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar, dobro (almost), programming, backing vocals) and the Friends of Jack All-Stars (in no particular order): Tom Grant (piano), Sandin Wilson (fretless bass), Cedrick Wright (drums), Rich Gooch (bass), Lex Browning (fiddle), Dover Weinberg (keyboards), Gary Ogan (drums), Larue Todd (bass), Jeff Woodcock (bass), Mark Spangler (guitar) and MVP Dave Kirby (drums & lunch).

Recorded on Thursdays from May 2006 to December 2007 at Short Attention Span Theater, Toutle, WA. Engineered, edited, aligned, tweaked, poked, prodded, and reassembled in a semblance of balance by Pastor Ron Stephens. Additional recording at Cozy Dog Recording and Beefneck Studios. Tom Grant & Lex Browning recorded in their respective homes. Tamborine respectfully recorded in Rudy's basement. Masterfully mastered by Ryan Foster at Freq Mastering.*
