Mack’s setlist also incorporates some contemporary folk and rock, interpreting artists such as Springsteen, ACDC, Red Hot Chillis, Chet Faker, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and more.
From 'The Extended Session with Fraser Mack' by Sarah Cates, The Hook, October 2017. His originals have a maturity that belie his youth. The lyrics are written from the heart, sung with passion, and played with supremacy from his acoustic guitar. Mack uses his whole guitar. The neck, the body, the strings.
The entire instrument is exploited. It is his percussion that creates the melody, and makes the performance. It’s guitar gymnastics...
