Jack Slade; born Mark Allan Jensen, has had a life long relationship with music and lyrics. He began writing melodies and songs at the early age of 7. Without  a solid family foundation and having been born into extreme poverty , Jack did not begin to hone his gift until he joined the Army at age 17 and ,soon after, began to teach himself how to play the guitar, and soon after that, he began to pour out his soul in lyrics. 

Thousands of miles later, hundreds of songs written, and decades past; Jack Slade now lives near the Twin Cities and can be heard, almost daily,  performing his songs in the virtual world of Second Life where he has gathered a following of fans from all over the globe. Whether singing before hundreds or dozens; the always raw, always real voice of Jack Slade will leave you spellbound.
