...with the 1970s-tinged guitar pop of Jack of Speed. The latter, in particular, would seem ripe with promise, combining dusky melodies, blistering funk solos and Thin Lizzy-esqe riffola... - The Metro


Jack of Speed are currently working on their first EP



Jack of Speed are a four piece rock band based in Dublin. Originally formed by school friends Mike Sleeman and Rhys Waters, they soon recruited another long time friend, Alastair Cross, on lead guitar and not long afterwards his classmate, Dan Stuart, on drums.

With a combination of a driving rhythm section accompanied by crunching guitars and catchy melodies Jack of Speed have been constantly striving to refine their sound by writing as many songs as possible. Each member of the band has their own unique influences ranging from the well known sounds of Radiohead and Queens of the Stone Age, old school favorites such as Led Zepplin and the Beatles, to more obscure acts such as Minotaur Schock and Explosions in the Sky.

Over the last few years the band have spent their time playing sporadic gigs in well known venues such as Whelans, the Sugar Club and Eamonn Dorans to name a few. The rest of the time was spent jamming, working on home recordings and trying to decide on a name!

Now in their mid twenties with their college years behind them, the band are looking to make an impact on the Irish music scene. With studio time booked and a new found sense of ambition (despite a recent spate of unfortunate injuries), they are looking forward to giving it all they can to promote themselves in the coming year.
