Be ready to shout, sing, and shed a tear. Jared Deck presents Bully Pulpit – full of gospel shouts, country storytelling, and soulful crooning.
Deck’s eponymous debut album received praise from American Songwriter Magazine and Rolling Stone Country. In 2016, his blue-collar anthem, “The American Dream,” was awarded winner of the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest.
His album, Bully Pulpit, offers a dichotic soundtrack to Deck’s diverse working background. Produced by Grammy-nominee Wes Sharon (John Fullbright, Parker Millsap), it features performances by members of Flying Burrito Brothers, Turnpike Troubadours, and Heart.
For a man who’s been on both sides of the pulpit, outsourced by a corporation, defeated in an election, and fired from church, the album title rings true. Bully Pulpit harmonizes Deck’s country storytelling with his gospel upbringing and blue-collar authenticity.
