Jack performs regularly (with a plethora of bands and outfits) throughout Edinburgh, the U.K, and has already began to spread across Europe.

Jack is endorsed by Faith Guitars, CovenantCables and Vein-Tap Pedals.

The Cultural Workers

Jack regularly performs alongside fellow singer / songwriter Calum Baird under the stage name, 'The Cultural Workers', playing acoustic cover favourites, as well as Calum's original material which comes with a Dylan-esque vibe. Regulars at Whistlebinkies will know Calum and Jack, but the duo often travel further afield, including being invited back to play the BBC Bandstand again in 2017.
