Jack Licitra is a piano/hammond organ driven singer/songwriter. His cd ”Everybody's Music” made the 2013 highlights list Sunday Morning Breakfast on WFUV. He has performed with some of the best musicians in the world such as Levon Helm, Jimmy Vivino and
Bakithi Kumalo as well as opening shows for legends such as Richie Havens, Buckwheat Zydeco, Pinetop Perkins and even playing for then Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Jack has spent everyday of his life, since the age of 14, writing or thinking about writing songs. The first song he wrote was a tribute to his father when he had cancer. After losing him, Jack gained a songwriting partner from the other side. He believes in using experience and creativity to express a feeling, tell a story or create a healing for the listener. Songwriting is a powerful connection to your voice and purpose.
The first Tuesday of the month we have a free songwriters meeting called “Bring it to the table.” It is held at True North Community Church in Bohemia. Sign up starts at 8PM. Everybody is welcome to play a song, and then the group discusses it.
Jack has produced CDs for many other artists including Robert Bruey, Taylor Alonso, Sydney Swinson and Skip Bement. He calls his grounded approach to production Design Development. It is a process oriented approach that starts at songwriting all the way to graphic design and career planning. It is efficient and balances budget with quality and goals.
Jack has played keyboards and accordions on close to a hundred releases. His creativity and experience in the studio help him get great results for other artists. As the famous saying goes, “simplify, then and add lightness.” It’s always about supporting the song and the artist.
