“I wouldn’t say it’s happy, I wouldn’t say it’s sad… I’d say it’s conversational.”

“There are some styles I had just never given a shot before, like country,” laughs Jack. “I wondered ‘it’s one of the biggest genres in the world, but why is it so big?’ So I really dove in and started to appreciate why people relate to it. It became a personal challenge for me then… if I wanted to keep writing the same songs, I guess I could, but there’s no growth in that. I want to keep growing and surprising myself and others.”

His debut album, Sucker For Sunsets will be released on March 31 this year. “I wouldn’t say it’s happy, I wouldn’t say it’s sad… I’d say it’s conversational,” Jack rhapsodises on the record. 

“It’s about all those conversations I’ve had with myself, realisations I’ve accepted over the last two years working through the highs and lows of international long-distance, touring and understanding myself more in the process.”
