Six of the Best



Much of what Jack Avalon has seen of the world amounts to fleeting glimpses captured from the window of a tour bus. Early in Jack's career, former Eagles member Joe Walsh recruited the young musician from his antipodean homeland while touring Australia. Stemming from his work as guitarist and backup vocalist, Jack eventually found himself in the company of such seasoned players as Skunk Baxter of Steely Dan, Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and the late John Entwhistle of The Who. These 70's rockers became his mentors as they toured Japan and the US, gifting Jack with tidbits of equipment, questionable advice and shining examples of what not to wear.

Inspired by what he had learned from his travels, Jack soon left his home in Sydney, Australia for life in the fast lane. What he inevitably found was that it helped to have wheels. An enormous wood-paneled station wagon named 'Bertha' had four, and that was at least enough to get things rolling. In the space of five years Jack played in famous rock venues like The Troubadour and Milwaukee's Shank Hall. He toured the festival circuit, appeared on ER and sang backup on numerous studio sessions. He performed on LA's KROQ and the Mark and Brian Show on KLOS.

A talented multi-instrumentalist, Jack’s tuneful toolbox features heavily on his Stingish timbre, but also holds everything from the time-honored strains of the PRS to the offbeat reverberation of his degerpipe. He has also been known to incorporate the mandolin, piano, and yes, the talk box. What doesn’t Jack play? Not much. Fans are inclined to remember the “echoes”of Pink Floyd and the punk stylings of the Police as Jack works his way around stylized 70 s covers and truly original sounding originals.

The last six months have seen Jack back in the recording studio recording a new album, “Six Of The Best”, named after the English tradition of disciplining errant schoolboys with six smarts raps across the rump with a cane. This new mini-album features six covers from some of Jack’s favorite artists – the titans of classic British rock.

Jack has also dabbled extensively in the black art of filmmaking, and has produced, edited, and scored many commercials and independent film projects through his production company, Third House Productions.
