BBC2 Young Folk Award Semi-Finalist 2016
Acoustic singer songwriter from Holmfirth, England. Jack was a semi-finalist in the BBC2 Young Folk Award 2016 and has played at festivals all over the UK since. Coming from a musical family, Jack began playing classical guitar at an early age and soon moved into the realms of songwriting in his teens.
During his first year of university, Jack took up singing and this furthered his ability to write his own songs and develop his songwriting techniques. Through his time at university Jack wrote numerous songs and was able to record and perform them as part of his course. After graduating with a first class degree and moving to London, Jack has been performing as a solo singer/guitarist at festivals and shows all over the UK and spent lots of time developing his sound and songwriting. He now has a well rounded and balanced sound which combines his Folk roots with clever guitar techniques and extra orchestration. His most notable performance yet was opening the Main Stage at Carnival 56, Camperdown park in 2017.
