Special Interview: Terence Jack

Terence Jack speaks exclusively to theaussieword.com!

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?

For grade 7-band class we all had to pick an instrument and my parents had an old classical guitar sitting around the house. I picked it11159531_10150520763874975_1004067807552007832_n up and never put it down. I’ve been playing in bands ever since then. I was in a ska band, rock, funk-ish and bounced around a lot.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?

I’ve dealt a lot with death in my life and it made me realize how short we actually have in our lives. I just didn’t want to spend time on things that I didn’t care about. My aim is to channel the art through me from whatever and wherever that comes from.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?

As an artist some of my goals are playing Red Rocks, The Gorge Amphitheatre but on a musical level is to express everything the way I hear it in my mind.

You tell me! I don’t really know but I think that just persistence, & hard work are good to count on.

What has been your biggest career highlight so far?

I’ve toured Canada twice this year, this time with a full band. Playing across the country is a wonderfully grueling experience. Cutting through the Rockies with my band-mates has been truly great. We’re hitting the east coast here in about 2-weeks and that’s going to be a career landmark for sure. Continue reading Special Interview: Terence Jack
