In composing for his budding guitar trio, native Londoner Jack Gillen draws influence from the likes of Nick Drake, Wes Montgomery, Jimi Hendrix and Frederic Chopin (as well as modern guitar heroes like Julian Lage and John Scofield), guided by a deeply introspective leaning and focus on emotional potency to create a cohesive musical whole. Years of collaboration with bassist Phil Donnelly and drummer Darren Beckett (Aaron Parks, Madeleine Peyroux, Kurt Rosenwinkel) have forged an unquestionable musical chemistry, which brings an exciting energy and spontaneity to this idiosyncratic yet accessible music which can go between sensitive ballads, hard grooves and cathartic rocking out, all with Gillen's distinctive songwriter-esque approach to composing. The debut album ‘No Home But Here’ is set to be released Autumn 2024.
