Biography

“One of Hull’s most innovative artists…” Dom Smith, Soundsphere Magazine

 

Described as “one of Hull’s most innovative artists…” Yorkshire born singer-songwriter Jack Parker has been captivating audiences all across the region. Taking influence from John Newman, Passenger and his local folk scene, Jack combines his rustic, singer-songwriter style with powerful, emotion driven lyrics.

 

Drawing from his own experiences of life and love, Jack recorded his first album ‘Love Like Her’ in 2015 whilst at school. ‘It really was touch and go’ Jack recalls, ‘at one point the computer I was recording with completely fell to bits!’ Despite the challenges faced, the album later made its appearance on BBC Radio Humberside. After being spotted by organisers, Jack was then invited to perform overseas at Costa Del Folk Festival in Spain. He is due to return to the festival in Portugal this October.

 

Using live recording technology, Jack takes his show to the next level. Playing guitar and keyboard on stage he accompanies his down-to-earth, acoustic style with large and dramatic electronic sounds, reminiscent of acts Ed Sheeran and Gavin James.

 

Jack’s latest EP ‘Wild’ is a burst of fun, excitement and style, with emotional undertones that gently pull on the heart strings. Featuring his own dog ‘Loki’ on the front cover, Jack’s latest EP ‘Wild’ is out 21st May.
