Hailing from Portland, OR by way of Olympia, WA, Jack Habegger’s Celebrity Telethon takes a uniquely northwestern approach to alternative country. The band has made a name for themselves with wobbly synths, twangy harmonies, and Habegger’s plainspoken songwriting. He has assembled a stable of veteran players for the outfit that each contribute singularly to a band that is both comfortable and eccentric. Bandcamp chose their January 2021 EP “Oy Vey!” as a “New and Notable” release, featuring it on their homepage and describing it as a “sweet slice of introspective, homespun country-folk.”
