Right the Stars’ Rich Jacques talks Wilco, traumatic childhood experiences, and teaching Zeppelin to Ben Affleck (yes, you read correctly)

Right the Stars is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/producer Rich Jacques, and although you may have already heard the band’s music in movies or on television (The Breakup, One Tree Hill), their self-titled debut doesn’t come out until June 15th. Before it does, The Rock and Roll Report is here to prep you on all things Right the Stars, as seen through the eyes of Rich Jacques himself.

Q: Rich, thanks for taking the time to discuss the new record. What was the inspiration behind the name of this project, “Right the Stars”?

A: I had been contemplating names for the project and then I heard Wilco’s “Jesus etc.” on the radio. There’s a line in that song, “You were right about the stars” [and] I got inspired by that and then edited it to Right the Stars.
