Jack Jones (AU) - Bird's Basement
After more than a decade in America, Jack Jones returns to Australia and for the first time, he will be playing Southern Sons' self-titled debut album in its entirety.
Jack was still a teenager when he found fame in Southern Sons. Their ARIA-nominated self-titled album went double platinum and hit number five on the ARIA charts. They went on to become one of the most loved Australian bands of the '90s, with hits such as 'Heart In Danger', 'Hold Me In Your Arms', 'You Were There', 'Always And Ever', 'Waiting For That Train', 'Lead Me To Water' and 'The World Is Mine'
Jack Jones relocated to the US and went on to record an album with INXS's Garry Gary Beers (2000's Mudhead), and released the acclaimed solo album, The Evolution of Irwin Thomas, in 2002. Jack returned to the Top 10 in 2017 with California Dreaming, a collaboration with Rick Price.
Jack is one of Australia's most accomplished and in-demand guitarist. He has played and toured with John Farnham, Dweezil Zappa, Tina Arena, Daniel Bedingfield and Richard Marx.
He has been a member of the Electric Mary and She Said Yes (with Bachelor Girl's Tania Doko). Jack also has his own Signature Series Shabat Guitar.
"I'm proud of everything I've done," Jack says, "but Southern Sons is where it all started for me, so I am very excited about this show. I am very fond of these songs - [guitarist] Phil Buckle is a masterful songwriter, and the band was a great time in my life."
