From producing to being on stage Jack Red is not new to the music scene. His love for Chicago isn’t new either. Working with almost all of your favorite Chicagoans, home is definitely something he is proud of.

“Music definitely saved my life. The level of vulnerability that being creative brings is both intoxicating and enlightening.  Having music as an outlet offers a therapeutic form of expression instead of embracing the grim side of my city.”

We sat down with Jack & recorded an acoustic version of his song ‘Homegrown’ We shot it at the Hyde Park Hair Salon, home to many of Chicago’s favorite barbers. Attending Kenwood Academy located a few blocks away from the salon, it was only right to shoot in a place that was like home to Jack Red. Enjoy this intimate & emotional ode to Chicago: Homegrown.
