Born and raised in the Chicago region, Jack developed an interest in music early on and took up saxophone in grade school. Guitar came a few years afterward and he took it with him to college (IU Bloomington). He has since created a lot of varied music (indie rock to metal core), spent a summer street performing in Asheville, NC, won a scholarship to attend the North Mississippi Hill Country guitar seminar in Holly Springs, MS, and has jammed with a lot of people (notably Jason Ricci and DuWayne Burnside).
His musical inspirations and interests are broad and deep, but at his core is American roots. Blues, folk, soul, rock, gospel, etc…
Finger picking, sliding, and shouting, a passionate performer
