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.

HEY this reminds me of that time I went to collect the eggs from my grandad's chooks and when I had them all in my hands i tripped and fell over and the eggs all smashed! And my knees were bleeding but my grandad just said - "what have you done to my eggs!". A lovely song that stole my heart, thank you.

Finding myself becoming a bigger fan of Jack Davies and friends with every new song I hear. Well spun and intimate stories from Jack. He's got a similar knack for storytelling as Peter Bibby with a less misanthropic worldview.
