Only Son

Only Son is the music of NYC-based songwriter Jack Dishel.

His third LP as Only Son (self-titled) was co-produced by Jonathan Bates of Big Black Delta and released in October 2017. Many of the songs from the album are featured in episodes of :DRYVRS, a comedy web-series that Jack wrote, directed and stars in.

His previous album, "Searchlight", features a duet written and sung with Regina Spektor and guest appearances by Kishi Bashi, members of The Strokes and Little Joy.

In the years following the 2006 release of his debut album, "The Drop To The Top", Dishel toured the world opening for fellow NYC songwriters Regina Spektor and Adam Green, sang on their albums and also lent his voice to records by Kimya Dawson and Nickel Eye. In addition, he sang and played guitar as a touring member of Little Joy.

Before creating Only Son, Dishel released two albums under the name Stipplicon and was lead guitarist for The Moldy Peaches.
