Suddenly I was thrown into this fast paced scene of incredibly talented people – I wanted to make the most of it, I didn’t want to be left behind”. Jacks thoughtful, melodic and beautiful folk songs ensured he wasn’t. He has spent the last 3 years writing and touring, playing some of Australia’s best known venues with some of Australia’s best loved artists (Tim Freedman, Shayne Nicholson and Lovers Electric) along the way, and all the while honing his craft. 2009 has already been the biggest year yet for this exciting young troubadour having just inked a deal with exclusive Sydney based indie label “Gigpiglet Recordings” (also home to ex Machine Gun Fellatio front man Pinky Beecroft and his band The White Russians and critically acclaimed Australian born Indonesian based singer/songwriter Athron). Wasting no time Jack is currently putting the finishing touches on a record scheduled for release through Gigpiglet / Inertia Distribution in October. Combine this with a solid schedule of tours booked and running into the new year and recent achievements including gaining video airplay on Channel V for independently released track “Good Old Town” and being selected by the Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA) to showcase an original track at their inaugural international songwriters convention “Song Summit” and its fair to say that things are looking up for Jack.
In Typical country fashion he is taking it all in his stride: “At this stage I just want to play my songs for people and be able to pay my rent you know? Anything more than that is a massive bonus.” www.jackcarty.com For all enquiries please contact Gareth Stuckey: e: firstname.lastname@example.org p: (02) 9698 9292 / 0413523190 w: www.gigpiglet.com.au Read more on Last.fm.
