Jack Hyphen was born out of the split of Herefordshire Indie/Rock Band Point Zero, who Jack was the front man of.
After a musical hiatus, acoustic singles such as ‘Not Aligned’ showcased the singer songwriter’s vocal and lyrical prowess, but Jack Hyphen was always destined for a much larger sound, thus transforming from a solo effort into a 4-piece alternative pop/rock outfit in mid 2019.
Combining aspects of indie pop and alternative rock, Jack and his band delivered an atmospheric, punchy and occasionally ethereal sound on his debut EP – Stops / Changes. (Released November 2019)
After recording “I Wanna Know (For Once)” at Abbey Road Studios, just 2 months before the pandemic hit, Jack released this song amidst the first lockdown, along with a music video shot around Manchester / Salford.
As for most musicians, lockdown left the reality of surviving as full time performer, and funding the recording planned, look almost impossible. After taking time away from that aspect, Jack had some very valuable time with Friends in Croatia. Upon return, and faced with 2 weeks isolation, he decided he would write and record a new EP.
This is could be shaping up as a new direction for Jack Hyphen, as the return of performing full, “normal”, gigs still may be some distance away.
