Biography

With their anthemic blend of Acoustic Rock, Frantic Jack are one the most exciting bands to come out of Ireland in recent years. With influences ranging from Matchbox20 to Dave Matthews Band, they have seamlessly molded their own unique sound and captured the attention of audiences across the country.

Frantic Jack consists of 5 musicians native to the Offaly/Kildare. Daragh Fitzgerald on vocals and guitar, Mark Kelly on lead guitar, Pauric Hurst on bass, James Kearney on keys and percussion and Mick Holton on drums.
The band’s debut album "Independence" received rave reviews from Hot Press amongst others and was tipped as one of the best Irish records of 2010. The album boasts two Top 20 singles in "Firefly" (which was also 2fm's single of the week) and "Free" as well as the bands first Top 10 single "Hold On"
To date Frantic Jack have played in some of the country’s biggest venues, and following performances in the Olympia Theatre, The RDS, Whelan’s and The Village their live shows have become known for being highly energetic, extremely tight and very entertaining. Along the way they have performed on the same card as the The Saw Doctors, Imelda May, Aslan and The Undertones and many more.
After a huge 6 week, 25 date Irish Tour in support of their debut album "Independence" during the summer of 2010, the band have now begun work on their follow up highly anticipated second album due for release during Autumn 2011. The album will be a more defined sound of the band and one which they hope to tour extensively at home and abroad.
