Jack and The Weatherman
Hailing from Haarlem (The Netherlands), Berry ‘Jack’ Krikken and Sebastiaan ‘Weatherman’ Weerman are Jack and the Weatherman. Two friends and their band on a mission to send their sun-soaked songs into the world. The songs of Jack and the Weatherman combine elements of pop, folk, reggae and hiphop with positive and profound lyrics. They celebrate the beautiful aspects of life in their music, while acknowledging the fragility of its beauty. It is music for both the heart and the head and during their dynamic live show they will probably make you appreciate life more. Berry and Sebastiaan were friends in high school. Their paths in life went separate ways after graduation; Berry traveled the world, writing down his experiences and thoughts as lyrics. Sebastiaan became a musician and learned to play various instruments. It was an odd chance that they met again, years later. It quickly became clear they would be partners in music when Sebastiaan got out his guitar and started playing The Dynamo Of Volition by Jason Mraz and Berry joined him by singing the lyrics of the song. Together, they are Jack and the Weatherman: Berry Krikken is Jack, (‘krik’ means jack in Dutch), and Sebastiaan Weerman is the Weatherman (‘Weerman’ translates to weatherman). Their they’re on a big adventure with lots of fun, music, sold out shows and new friends both in their native The Netherlands and abroad. Without any support by a label or management they write and release three EP’s: Something Positive (2014), Homewards (2015) and Some Kind of Purpose (2016), before releasing their full length debut album The Lucky Ones (2018).
