WA born and bred Lightnin Jack has been indulging in his love of blues music since he was knee high to a grasshopper. Growing up on a solid diet of southern rock and true blue home bred Aussie bands in a home where music and instruments were a major part of every day life. Being heavily influenced by artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lead Belly, Hound Dog Taylor and his own Father, Jack began exploring his love for music, having been taught guitar by Ori Rossi who has mentored artists by the likes of John Butler and IOTA. Recording and performing by the age of 12 Lightnin Jack has now been touring Australia for 10 years developing his trademark raw, husky, bluesy sound, incorporating old and new with his foot percussion, multiple guitars and one of a kind voice to create his trademark Lightnin Jack sound. Throughout his musical career Jack has supported and performed on stage with acts such as The Angels, Ash Grunwald and Blue Shaddy, as well as playing at multiple festivals such as Byron Bay Blues Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Bridgetown Blues Festival and Airlie Beach Music Festival doing his solo work and playing guitar in other outfits. Having just come from supporting Tony Joe White on his West coast tour Jack has just released his third studio album ‘South West Sessions’ Lightnin Jack has made his way around the country sharing his music far and wide forming his reputation as a genuine travelling man.
