Powered by a steady musical diet of old time country legends and modern day guitar bands, Ben Blakeney is the skilful master and commander of Perth ex-pats Jack On Fire.

Powered by a steady musical diet of old time country legends and modern day guitar bands, Ben Blakeney is the skilful master and commander of Perth ex-pats Jack On Fire. The core of the band have a rich history, with Blakeney, Samantha Wass (acoustic guitar/keys/accordian) and Dave Thikerttle-Watts (bass) having played together in eight piece West coast dreamy popsters, Institut Polaire. Jack On Fire is completed by Wass' old friend George Hyde, a fellow country music aficionado, and superb guitarist. Hyde's style perfectly compliments Blakeney's intensity.Hyde's school time chum Ross Goodale on drums, and the latest addition, Melbourne native Kelly Lane adding extra richness to the band on violin. After steady gigging in Perth, Jack On Fire relocated to Melbourne in early 2008, where their reputation as a dynamic live force spread quickly. Their collection of songs are brilliantly crafted and fiercely executed.

Traversing swamp-rock, bluegrass and country noir, they possess a truly unique sound. Passionate and driven, Jack On Fire have recorded an album called Stranger Cain, which can be found at their gigs and from their myspace page, http://myspace.com/jackonfireband "With their inspirations being the Gun Club with some Nick Cave thrown in the mix they have done what any good band is able to do and transcend their influences to present a unique sound that can only be described as their own." Marc Edwards, Xpress "They literally fill the stage and fill the room with a rambunctious set of rich, deep textured melodies heavily based on guitar filled alt country tunes." Boo Meister, Inpress "Running along the same hot-blooded vein of WA bred and battered produce as the Kill Devil Hills and the Drones, Jack on Fire possess that violent desperation only found in the harsh dry heat of a frontier chapel" Steph Kretowicz, The Wire "Ben Blakeney, beard-clad and bluesed-up, has that great rock aesthetic that tops off the act and does it justice. The six-piece melange additions like crankin’ violin so well it’s impossible not to move with them." Laura Glitsos, Xpress Read more on Last.fm.
