When Carl Barât began working on the follow-up to his self-titled 2010 solo debut, he realized he needed the collaborative spirit of a band for this set of songs.
After posting an ad on Facebook seeking potential members that drew thousands of interested musicians, he settled on the lineup of guitarist Billy Tessio, bassist Adam Claxton, and drummer Jay Bone. Dubbed the Jackals, Barât and the band went into the studio with the Bronx's Joby J. Ford as producer. The results, Let It Reign, arrived in 2015. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
