Bio

Jack Davies is a 19-year-old songwriter based in Fremantle. The young folksinger weaves suburban Australiana and intimate stories into thundering folk rock ballads. After years of busking and performing solo, he recruited a few friends to form The Bush Chooks, an electrified take on his former folk tales. Just a year after forming, Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks were nominated for three WAM awards and won Nannup Music Festival’s prestigious Emerging Artist Award. Debut single "Vegemite Sandwich" and follow-up release "Rosemary Mushrooms" are intimate, witty and dang near delicious tracks – think poetry penned from the backseat of a Troopy. Watch out for their Debut EP to be released May 2019.

I was thinking to myself today, wondering who of the modern Australian songwritings writing gentle, folk inspired songs have what it takes to be remembered in the long term and I reckon Jack might be one of them. His songs cut straight to the core and put you in a time and place you didn't know you were missing.

Jack's a special one. He and his coop spin a web of verbiage that you don't mind getting tangled up in.

it starts all slow and meandering then as it gets going, as the beer melts and everyone gets involved it becomes such a rollicking good time.
