Australian multi-style cellist

William Jack is a multi-style cellist and songwriter from South Australia. He is best known for incorporating his jazz guitar background into an unconventional style of cello playing, with a passion for breaking boundaries between genres and cultures. His music transitions seamlessly from virtuosic folk & bluegrass compositions, to non-Western sound worlds.

Since his classical studies in Vienna, William has forged his own cello pathway, touring Europe, Australia and the UK extensively. He has recently performed his solo compositions from his debut album ‘This Old Cello Box’ on BBC Introducing and Radio 3. William was selected to perform as a ‘New Folk’ songwriter at the 2023 Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. He has been fortunate to work with numerous world-renowned artists, including Tom Rosenthal, Joseph Lawrence, Fryars, Hari & Sukmani and Laure Chan. William is passionate about redefining the possibilities of the cello and bringing the instrument into new territories.

William is currently touring Scotland surrounding 2 performances at the 2024 Edinburgh Fringe. His sophomore album will be released in the coming months.
