This Friday evening, Jack and his co-isolators present an exclusive acoustic session to be premiered through Tŷ Pawb’s Facebook page from 7.30pm.
“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 Found, originally from Llangollen, North Wales, has developed a unique musical style – “I’ve been working to develop a distinctive sound, something a little different, a sound that people will recognise as me, even if they don’t like it they will definitely know it’s me.”
He takes influence from a wide range of artists and musical genres; Beck, Of Montreal, Bjork, The Flaming Lips and Bowie to name just a few. The result sits somewhere in the hallowed ground of Davie Byrne (Talking Heads), Depeche Mode, Franz Ferdinand and Jarvis Cocker.
After receiving classical training at Chethams School of Music, Manchester, Jack moved to London aged 18 to pursue his musical ambitions and form a band, and over the past few years they have played at countless gigs and festivals in the UK and overseas; Boomtown Fair, Kendal Calling, Wrexham’s FOCUS Wales, a tour of the UAE, Mercat de Música Viva de Vic in Catalonia, supporting Gallops at Tŷ Pawb and Dub Pistols at the Llangollen Fringe being just some of the highlights.
Following the outbreak of Covid-19, Jack left London and returned home to Llangollen. Along with his older brother and drummer Tom Found and Tom’s partner, vocalist Jade Rowswell, Jack has been producing live sessions and recordings for the likes of Jägermeister and Benumu from his shed-studio and bedroom in the trees.
Jack was also asked to put together a video and write some music for ‘Feed Your Community’ – an amazing initiative that’s donated over 20,000 meals to the NHS, homeless, children and key workers throughout the coronavirus crisis.
The exclusive acoustic session will be premiered through Tŷ Pawb’s Facebook page from 7.30pm on Friday.LATEST INFO ON COVID-19
