About Jack

Classically trained violinist specialising in electric violin live effects. Classical virtuosity meets cutting edge audio technology.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I’ve been playing the violin for over 20 years and am a graduate of the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. I’ve played with over 100 artists in the UK and overseas. My two biggest passions in life are playing the violin and audio production. My knowledge of music technology allows me to put together unique sets with complex audio processing on my violin. This lets me create the sounds of rock guitars, dubstep synthesisers and much more all out of one instrument. All meticulously pre-programmed into Ableton Live to do exactly what I want in every part of every song!

Jack performed as an electric violinist at my recent party and he went above and beyond to provide some fantastic, upbeat entertainment for myself and my guests to enjoy! He was friendly and approachable when messaging prior to the event, helping me to feel relaxed about the whole booking process. Jack performed a mix of crowd-pleasers that my guests and I really enjoyed! He clearly knew which songs would work best and he really provided the party atmosphere that I had hoped for for my celebrations. I highly recommend Jack and I will definitely book him again for any future parties/events!

I've known Jack many years and booked him to play at a lot of events over those years. From playing in my backing band and support slots at my shows to providing entertainment at events I promote for venues in Stoke and Manchester. Whenever jack plays he gets the attention of the room and stands out on any bill. He has always been a reliable and dependable player as well as a great talent.
