Jack Pine (Ottawa Singer/Songwriter/Producer Gareth Auden-Hole) grew up with his head in the city and his heart in the northern wild. Enthralled with music, from a very young age he fed his ears a steady diet of Toms [Waits, Yorke, Petty] and just about anything else he could get his hands on. It was not until adulthood that he began writing music of his own, and years later still before he took the name of a tree. By then he'd finished a degree, hitchhiked across his Canadian homeland, played in a handful of bands, and studied music production in Victoria, Ottawa, and London. It wasn’t until 2011 before work finally began on what would become a self-titled debut album as Jack Pine and The Fire, a rollicking alternative folk/country sound that breathes new life into the traditional American folk music that Jack had grown to love. His unique rhythmic mandolin style play counter beats to the rhythm of acoustic guitars.
