Having cut his teeth in his teens trading licks with such luminaries as Paul Jones and The Blues Band, more recently with Tony Joe White and receiving accolades from Martin Simpson who marvelled, ‘At last! A brilliant young guitarist coming through’

Jack is no stranger to blues and folk. On his latest album, he fuses both with country, rock and pop with a voice that has been described as sounding ‘older and more careworn than his tender years should allow’ (Acoustic Magazine).   Jack is an artist not to be missed.
