The 23 year old singer/songwriter/guitarist born in Manchester but living in Stockport is part of the ever growing but effervescent Manchester music scene. The self taught guitarist also following in his songwriter dad's footsteps.
"Music has certainly helped me to get through some very difficult periods in my life". With already a debut EP “Lubo” under his sleeves, standout track "Merry-Go-Round' having repeated plays on BBC Introducing. "Lubo" includes some songs that are littered with claustrophobic and often painful asides about 'rejection and loss' alongside melodies so catchy you will be cussing their very existence as you drift off to sleep. Jack cites The Last Shadow Puppets, Arctic Monkeys, Chris Issak and Catfish and the Bottlemen as influences that have helped shape and inspire his music today.
His debut single 'Don't Wait Up' (Feb 2019) being described as 'what you see is what you get’ nature, the playful track circulates around a difficult subject of letting go. Recorded by Joel Patchett (The Orielles) and mixed and mastered by Jim Spencer (Johnny Marr, The Charlatans). "There’s a subtle nudge towards the indie movement through his inspiring vocal lines".

New release 'Mexican Scar' features his best production yet. Carrying that same wistfully melodic quality. "This song title was inspired by something my parents used to say. I cut myself quite severely in Mexico when I was child, and still to this day I have the scar. So my parents have always called it my "Mexican Scar". I thought it would be a great title for a song".
Jack will be back in the studio recording his new single. You can catch Jack B Dawson playing with his band at The Night and Day Cafe on 7th May and an acoustic set for 'The Made In Manchester Festival' on the 23rd May.
