the new single
From the upcoming EP 'ESCAPE IN PROGRESS'
Calico Jack are a funk-pop group from London UK, drawing on the grooves of 70s funk & soul and the catchy melodies of modern indie rock and pop. The multi-instrumentalist trio create guitar-led, danceable funk with an ear for powerful vocal lines and grooving rhythms.
The trio of Will Lord (vocals, bass, keyboards), Kyle DM (guitars, synthesisers, production), and Luke Piper (drums, keyboards) released their first EP, Pirate Radio, in 2016. Taking a sharp turn into the direction of funk, their second EP followed in 2017, How To Feel Right, featuring the infectious single The Groove.
Known for their high-energy live shows, the group have gigged extensively to crowds across London, even playing from a bus roof to an audience of over 60,000 at the 2019 Student Climate Strike in Parliament Square.
After two successful UK tours in the summers of 2018 and 19, the group focused on writing and recording new material. Post-lockdown, new music is sure to be on the horizon...
When the world is safe...
We shall return to its stages.
