Be ready to shout, sing, and shed a tear. Jared Deck presents his new album, 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 new 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.
