Singer-songwriter and musician Jack Tipper was born on a military base in North Yorkshire in 1978. He was first introduced to music by his father, a professional singer. For five years Jack worked alongside his father touring clubs and pubs across the UK.
Jack formed his first band at seventeen, performing original material. Over the years he crossed Australia and Europe in a variety of bands and as a solo artist.
Jack’s influences and experiences developed his style into a folk/blues based catalogue of material and in 2011 jack formed the band Far North District performing his own original songs across the South West of England. Playing a string of gigs and festivals, the band rapidly became a fixture on radio. Jack’s style is likened to a mix of country rock, folk and blues. His songs are about his life experiences and what is going on around him. As he himself says, ‘I just write what I feel, know and see’
In 2017 Jack came together with Tarma Lynn to form “The Peace Keeping Missiles
