With the release of his new album Take These Blues on iTunes, this seasoned musical performer’s works no longer rely solely on his incredible guitar talent as he now does on his growing song-writing capabilities. And while Jack’s guitar work remains an integral part of his sound, it is his continued growth with his songs released on this album and his multi-award winning 2012 release Better Place that has gained him critical recognition for his works.
Honest and earthy Take These Blues rolls from blistering rockin’ shuffles and powerhouse blues through to velvety melodies that emanate from the heart. Seasoned vocals and versatile guitar licks, Jack’s performances on these new works are laced with mesmerizing improvisation. Take These Blues is a testament to the commitment and longevity of this revered Australian songwriter.
