The Visionary.
The Transformer.
The Trailblazer.

“I bring something about, binding it to a particular action.”
“My promise is one of positive transformation.”

First love.

Don Jack interacted creatively with the world pretty much from the get-go. He composed his first song at six years of age and at nine, Don conducted his school’s orchestra, leading them to a national music award.
After this early foray into leading folks to victory with creativity, Don went on to hit some important creative highlights in the UK music scene: as vocalist/drummer for the band Floodlight, the rock band Marco Polo, and in Candy, experiencing his first chart success with Burt Bacharach’s Please Stay. If you’re a fan of WetWetWet then Don is one of the people to thank – look for his name on their records.

Don is still making use of the insights he learned from the music business, in that industry and in others. And let’s face it – he has too much energy to be confined to composing for TV and video, though naturally he does that too. Don has written the book, lyrics and music for Loch Ness – The Magic, Monster Musical. He still fronts the Carnevale Radio Big Band at corporate events, and he has directed and performed in Vegas-style floorshows. Don’s most recent studio project, new country duo JIMNI is typically streamed 2000 times every week.

For art’s sake.

You’d think with his musical talents and his ability to apply creative thinking to business needs, Don would be all created-out. Surely he must hang up his drum sticks and his strategic thinking cap and just watch Neil Oliver documentaries or something.
You’d think wrong. Don Jack is an artist as well.

At age 11, Don won the Brooke Bond Art Prize. He has since exhibited paintings and sculptures around the world.  He likes to organise art as well, and curates the popular culture exhibition titles in the Museum of Movie Magic, Scotland. He’s very good at that – wherever the exhibitions appear internationally, museum visitor numbers shoot through the roof.
