'Little' Jack M began playing guitar when he was 18.
Initially, his foremost influence was George Harrison who's contribution to the guitar, as far as Jack is concerned, is still far too underrated and overlooked.
Obviously, Jack's first influence was The Beatles. However, without the Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, The White Stripes and The Black Keys, 'Little' Jack may have never picked up a guitar. This exploration of raw, stripped back, heavy blues led to an exploration of further blues such as Son House and Junior Kimbrough. All in all, Jack lists his all time greatest influences as being those above plus Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Albert King, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac (particularly The Peter Green Years.
Jack's contributions to Bone Broke Kings songs is immediately identifiable, particularly his use of the slide technique, widely influenced by Duane Allman and Ry Cooder.
Outside of music, Jack is an avid watcher of sport, especially if it can be combined with a pint or two in the local.
