Jack On Fire are an outfit powered by a steady musical diet of old time country legends and modern day guitar bands. Traversing swamp-rock and country noir, they possess a truly unique sound.

After steady gigging in Perth, Jack On Fire relocated to Melbourne in early 2008, where their reputation as a dynamic live force spread quickly. Their collection of songs are brilliantly crafted and fiercely executed.

“Running along the same hot-blooded vein of WA bred and battered produce as the Kill Devil Hills and the Drones, Jack on Fire possess that violent desperation only found in the harsh dry heat of a frontier chapel” Steph Kretowicz, Mess & Noise
