Bio

Busker, rambler, egg scrambler... Jack Davies is widely regarded for his witty lyricism and powerful storytelling. After joining forces with his merry band of bush chooks, the group's thundering folk-rock ballads quickly garnered acclaim across the country. Recently, they took home the WAM award for best folk act, a SOTY award for best country song, and an NLMA award for WA's best live act. Now, after having the world flipped upside down, hard fried, the chooks gleefully return to the WA stage with more energy than ever.

This has my vote as a replacement for the national anthem. Quick witted and clever prose with that lingering banjo and harmonica, Jack is a next gen bush balladeer and i'm in awe.
