Jack Fister is a rocknroll country-blues guitar picker currently based in Austin, Texas. He began writing songs to record in 2016, honing the craft in St. Louis, Missouri while playing in local garage punk bands. Traveling to and from the Western Coast and the Southwestern United States by DIY rocknroll tours, busking, hitchhiking, and a freight train ride through Utah and Wyoming further inspired his own music. His style draws from blues legends like Lightnin’ Hopkins and Leadbelly, as well as country greats like Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams Sr., Willie Nelson. His honky-tonk band, Jack Fister’s Wildlife, draws also on country-rock bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and western-swing bands like Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys Since moving to Texas, he released his single “Funeral House Blues” followed by his self-penned full length album “Sweet Riverside Farm Mojo Heart” in August of 2022, recorded at SweetHeart Studios in Elgin, TX.
