Bio

Raised in Kiama, NSW, before making the pilgrimage to Sydney, Jack has been carving out a unique niche in the scene for a few years now. The strength and consistency of his work has earned him the prized support slots of some huge international headline shows, including Gavin DeGraw (USA), Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate/Jack's Mannequin, USA), Into It. Over It. (USA) and Tiny Ruins (NZ). Jack has also found himself in good company locally, playing alongside praised Aus acts including Rat!Hammock, Bec Sandridge and Slowly Slowly, and on the revered Yours and Owls Festival line-up. 2018 saw Jack release his EP Pursuing Balance with very positive reception, earning triple j spins and drawing crowds to both his local and interstate shows. Prepare for the heartbreak and the healing.

This builds and hits like some lessons learned. The type of track that hits after the Boy gets the cute Girl and the credits roll on you left sitting there with your heart strings pulled out.
