Raw, prosaic lyrics and layered harmonies set the scene for her pop/folk debut, with lead single ‘Nowhere’ narrating her leap of faith into music as she eschewed corporate claustrophobia to follow her passion.

A natural storyteller, Jack’s introspective lyrics resonate with listeners of every background, while her simple, acoustic arrangements compel. Recorded at the enchanting An Tobar Studios on the Isle of Mull, the fourth track to be released from her debut is 'Equalised'.

 “Wonderful debut” - Jim Gellatly, Amazing Radio

“A gorgeous addition to her repertoire and an inspiring, uplifting reminder to believe in yourself." - Suzanne Oswald, Tenement TV
