Biography

Jac Stone Biography

---
Jac Stone has had a very busy year. The young singer/songwriter has been working with Darren Middleton of Powderfinger fame & producer Yanto Browning, resulting in the completion of her debut EP - “Leave me here,” released in February 2011.

Featuring Middleton on electric guitar as well as production duties, the record also boasts one of Brisbane’s hardest working rhythm sections with Chris Pearson taking a break between Washington shows to play bass & Chris O’Neill finding time in between gigging for Asa Broomhall & Tara Simmons to lay down the drums. The shift in focus from solo acoustic guitar & voice to the bigger band sound has seen Jac grace the stage at the Splendour in the Grass festival, as well as landing her an opening slot at one of the Brisbane shows for Powderfinger’s farewell tour & a series of shows supporting the Audreys.

The newfound confidence and maturity in Jac’s songwriting and performance is also reflected in the recordings; while the delicate acoustic guitar & heartfelt vocal delivery of Jac’s early work is still prominent, the new band dynamic really helps bring her songs to life, with tracks such as “River” fast becoming a crowd favourite & “Dress Shop” showcasing the dynamic changes and lyrical storytelling that first brought Jac to attention while she was on the solo circuit.

With some high profile shows under her belt and increasing support, the second half of 2011 looks more & more exciting for this promising young singer/songwriter.
