Hello there! I’m Jack Daffin, and I’m a multi-instrumentalist, composer and music producer/mix engineer from the South West of England! I have a deep love for all styles of music and the way that they can influence the internal dialogue of the listener, and I’ve forever been infatuated with finding ways of bringing this effect out with creative instrumentation, imaginative textures and inventive song structures. No matter where you go, there will always be enchanting new music to follow, and always something new to learn!
