Bright and energetic a kaleidoscope; complex percussion supports strong melodies, trombone riffs interplay with multi-layered orchestration and a remarkable voice reminiscent of early Bowie shimmers over the top. It’s not Pop, It’s not Rock. Its Jack Found.
Jack has developed a unique style, “I’ve been working to develop a distinctive sound, something a little different, a sound that people will recognize as me, even if they don’t like it they will definitely know it’s me” A classical training, a period as a leading youth jazz musician, and the skills of a multi instrumentalist give a strong sonic depth and musical width to his songs. Influences there are so many; Beck, Of Montreal, Bjork, The Flaming Lips and Bowie,
The result sits somewhere in the hallowed ground of Davie Byrne (Talking Heads), Depeche Mode, Franz Ferdinand and Jarvis Cocker, remarkable company for a twenty year old.
Jack and his band now based in London bring together an array of fabulous talent from the North of England, Wales (Jack and big brother Tom), Italy and the East End. All trained musicians, they play tight, they entertain, they have choice moves. You will smile, you will sing and you will dance.
Reviews for Sundown his first single paint the picture: “With nods to the more colourful side of Britpop its refreshing.” “It’s very “Something For The Weekend,” in stereo, a beaming chorus and husky vocals… Oh so slightly Super Fury animals.” “It’s one of those songs… You listen to it once in the morning on your way to work and catch yourself humming it, hands in the sink as you wash the dishes, Tuesday week, 8 o’clock pm”.
Jack is currently recording a series of new songs for release throughout 2018; tours, festivals and hopefully an album will accompany them.
