With the saltwater of the Far South Coast of NSW and the crystal clear water of the Snowy Mountains running through his veins, Jack Biilmann has been surrounded by inspiration his whole life. After five years of constant touring, six single releases and two full length albums, Biilmann has a rapidly growing reputation as one of the countries most talented singer/songwriter/guitarists.
As a guitarist Biilmann is a force to be reckoned with and has caught the eye of world renowned guitar brands Gibson & Cole Clark guitars resulting in official player partnerships. Whether it be intricate acoustic finger style and percussion, clockwork like finger picking or lightning fast blues/rock licks, Jack will stop you in your tracks. Biilmann is a true story teller and the way he delivers his songs vocally leaves no doubt in any listeners mind. From whispering to sending waves of vocal power which has got him comparisons to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon.
The last four years has seen Biilmann play over a two hundred live shows/festivals per year while sharing the stage with some of the country’s biggest artists including Hot Dub Time Machine, DJ Tigerlily, Tash Sultana, Citizen Kay, Ian Moss, Sarah Mcleod (The Superjesus), Mat Mchugh (The Beautiful Girls), Jay Whalley ( Frenzal Rhomb), Bootleg Rascal, Abbe May and Kim Churchill, as well as performing as part of the ACT’s 2015 showcase at BIGSOUND, Australia’s national music industry conference.
In January 2016 Biilmann released a touching tribute track “Forever Unbeaten*” dedicated to fallen cricketer Phillip Hughes which was internationally acclaimed and written about by media outlets such as The Daily Telegraph, Fox Sports News & The Herald Sun and received press as far as India, Pakistan & England to name a few. After spending the majority of 2016 locked away in the studio with highly sought after producer Matt Barnes & world renowned mastering engineer Tony “Jack The Bear” Mantz (Xavier Rudd, John Butler Trio , Silverchair) Biilmann’s second solo STREAMS album was released on February 23rd, 2017 with a great deal of hype attached with it. The record charted at #3 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts and #14 on the Australian Independent Record Labels Association album charts plus glowing reviews around the country.
