'From Both Sides' - Album released July, 2007 on iTunes, Emusic and TheOrchard. All tracks are available for streaming and have been aired across Australia/New Zealand.
'Can Almost Taste the Rain' - EP for Australian Drought Relief - currently in production. EP includes 2 brand new songs plus 3 uplifting tracks from 'From Both Sides'.



Originally from North Carolina, this renegade Southern gentleman arrived upon Aussie shores with but a notebook full of killer tunes and humble, heartrending lyrics aimed at the 'every-man' inside us all. Shopping around for just the right mix and sound, Jac soon attracted the attention of some of Australia’s most noted rock icons. These include: Mark Evans (AC/DC), Russell Morris, David Moyse (Air Supply), The Angels (John and Rick Brewster, Buzz Bidstrup and Chris Bailey), Rose Tattoo (Paul DeMarco and Rob Riley), Gwyn Ashton (BB King, Mick Fleetwood) and UKs Paul Wetton (Robert Plant Band) and are the International Legends featured with Jac on the album.
With a world-class seven-piece band logging more than 125 years' experience between them, finesse, maturity and passion are the silver bullets in vocally-driven, gut-wrenching power ballads like ‘Fire Burns’ and ‘Exhale’ (written for survivors of the World Trade Centre); while the heart-thumpin’, ass-kickin’, skirt-liftin’ classic backbeat of songs like ‘Dirty Mean and Nasty’, ‘Til We Run Outta Highway’ and ‘Good Bad Girl’ leave no doubt who it is brandishing the smokin’ gun of this truly unique rock & roll genre. Country too wears a brand new hat in Jac’s classy, hard driving, songs like ‘Down and Dirty’, ‘I Want Love’ and ‘Cut to the Chase’ – timeless reflections amidst all the spit and polish of this exceptional act successfully straddling ‘Both Sides’ of the fence.
Though each song was written to stand on its own, the journey of the album is epic – as rare indeed are the times we stumble across an album that is all guts and no filler. And regardless of whether Jac plays unplugged or full-bore, you’ll wanna dance; you’ll wanna listen; you'll want lots more.
If it’s been awhile since last you were ‘wow-ed’ … you’re about to be!
