Jack Rose first rose to prominence with the drone/noise/folk unit, Pelt. Pelt can be counted among the early influential new music underground bands such as UN, No Neck Blues Band, Charalambides, Tower Recordings and Six Organs of Admittance. Along with the influences of John Fahey and Robbie Basho, Rose also incorporated North Indian classical, early American blues, bluegrass and minimalism into his singular style.

Luck in the Valley, came right as Rose's influence was just beginning to take flight, but was sadly his last album before his unexpected death in December of 2009. Still, his music and influence, much like his person, bold, hearty, and rooted in traditional American music continues to be a source of reference for guitarists and musicians carrying traditional American music into modern times.

“It’s a big, bold work, just the way Rose was a big, bold guy-- confident, honest, and forthright.” - Pitchfork
