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.

The toast of the West at the moment, Jack Davies and his band of bush chooks continue to impress with some wilting folk storytelling.

Jack Davies, one of Australia’s best modern storytellers is at it again with more tales of little life made to feel perfectly specific to every listener. How does he do it?

i wouldn't usually give 4 mins to a telemarketer but this is different. it's poised and poetic beauty.
