Rambling YearsEdit

2003-2007 When Jack turned eighteen he dropped out of high school, said goodbye to his family and friends, picked up his guitar and hitched hike across the United States. When Jack arrived at North Dakota he dropped his last name Riley, and exchanged it with Fate. Jack got a time slot for local bars and cafes, he performed for over six months until he left North Dakota. While jumping and playing from state to state Jack feverishly wrote countless protest songs and other power songs. It wasn't until Jack reached Mississippi when he started to get recognized as a powerful musician with something to say.

Protest and PeaceEdit

"2007-current In Mississippi Jack was found by Dante Teathers a small time music producer. Teather's was organizing a peace rally and asked Fate if he would like to join, he did. Fate performed at the South Mississippi Peace Festival in late 2007 in front of 10,000 people. After his performance the crowd went wild with cheers of excitement and eventually calling him out a second time. The local media and eventually the national media dubbed him as The Voice of the Generation, "Poster boy of peace".

With his name out, Jack headed countless festivals including, "California Gay Rights March", "New Mexico Peace Rally", "Colorado Loves Peace", "New Port Music Festival", "New York: Green Festival" and countless other rallies. Jack has performed for little or no money, the 95% of the ticket sales goes to the cause of the festival. Jack has only been interviewed once because of his distaste of the media. In the interview he was asked "how he was helping to stop the war", he reportedly said " I'm not".

Jack has been touring for over two years straight and has not released an album yet. He has just recently released his first single "Ballad Of JFK". When asked why he says "I have hundreds of songs I want to record but I am not worry about that, I'm happy touring and performing for the cause of peace, not for the cause of an album. Don't get me wrong I'll record soon but it ain't time yet."

The time was right; in early November of 2008 Jack Fate recorded and released his debut self titled album " JACK FATE ". The album featured many powerful thought provoking songs that are written with such poetic adroitness that is is often called " Poetry Music."
