Hey, Jack here, Bassist for The Loved and Lost.
joining in 2012 I was the final member to join the band of musicians soon to write songs together under the name The Loved and Lost.
After befriending Jordan Quinn in our first year of college studying Music, I was later introduced to Dan Fletcher and Sam Ward who, alongside Jordan and myself, began writing songs that later featured in our Demo EP - Into A Dream.

In my own time I work as a Sound Engineer at a multitude of venues and festivals and just like all the band members, I'm an avid gamer, enjoying games series like  Final Fantasy, Burnout, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo and Battlefield.

My musical influences come from a variety of bands; Billy Talent, Feeder, Papa Roach, Rise Against, Yellowcard, Chiodos, Biffy Clyro, Nothing More.

Along with many other established artists I also have a love of local music and I am active in the local music scene of Hereford and Worcester, my home town. In my own words - Local music is still some of the best music. You have no expectation for them to be any good. So when they are, they're really good!
