Hailing from Haarlem, Berry ‘Jack’ Krikken and Sebastiaan ‘Weatherman’ Weerman are Jack and the Weatherman. Two friends in music on a mission to send their sun-soaked folky pop songs into the world. Inspirated by the music of Jason Mraz, The Lumineers and the vocal harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel. The songs of Jack and the Weatherman combine elements of pop, folk and reggae, with positive and profound lyrics. In their songs they celebrate the beautiful aspects of life, while acknowledging the fragility of its beauty. It’s music for both the heart and the head.
They quickly become one of the most active live bands of the Netherlands, but stay out of the limelight of the music industry. Without any support by a label or management they score hit after hit on Spotify, with millions of streams from across the world. They tour extensively all over Europe, with shows in Finland, the UK, Germany, France and Switzerland. They raise the roof wherever they perform.
Finally their eagerly anticipated debut album is ready for release: The Lucky Ones. Because that’s what they are, those two friends from Haarlem who found each other by odd chance. Two guys who realise how extraordinary life is, and who write songs about it. Cheerful songs on first listen, but with a deeper layer for those willing to listen. And every day more and more people are willing to listen to the ir songs. They’re ready for take off, they’re the lucky ones: Jack and the Weatherman.
