"He's a great songwriter. He paints pictures with simple words. He’s just really good at it."
Jack Tempchin is perhaps best known for his five multi-platinum Eagles songs, two of which are on the RIAA Certified Best-Selling Album of the 20th Century, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975. Jack’s "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone" (co-written with Rob Strandlund), are also featured in the recent History of the Eagles documentary by Alex Gibney. Other cuts are on Hell Freezes Over and Long Road Out Of Eden.
During the Eagles 14-year "vacation," Jack Tempchin took the Don Henley seat next to Glenn Frey, as well as co-wrote radio hits for Glenn Frey's solo career, including "Smuggler's Blues" and "You Belong to The City" from the Miami Vice TV soundtrack. Other Tempchin tunes have been covered and/or sung by George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits, Glen Campbell, Chris Hillman, Jackson Browne, Dwight Yoakam, Linda Ronstadt, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, Tanya Tucker, Randy Meisner, Tom Rush, Kate Wolf, Richie Havens, Dave Edmunds, Vince Gill and My Morning Jacket. Tempchin also had a Top 10 hit with rocker Johnny Rivers: “Slow Dancing Swayin’ To The Music."
For 2018, Jack continues his PEACEFUL EASY FEELING 45th Anniversary Tour with a new album: Peaceful Easy Feeling – The Songs Of Jack Tempchin, out now on Blue Elan Records. Jack pays tribute to partner and pal Glenn Frey with his own version of a dozen popular tracks they wrote together. It features special guest vocalists Rita Coolidge, Janiva Magness, Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen. Learn more about Jack Tempchin at www. PeacefulEasyFeeling.com
