Jaco aged 18, grew up in Tallaght, ('unfortunately' his own words). He began his journey into music upon taking up the Bass guitar at 14 after discovering a jazz record, namely Jaco Pastorious' 'Self Titled' album. From that moment on, Jaco fell in love with the instrument and everything about jazz. Some of his other big inspirations include the session musicians; Carole Kay and Tony Levin. Another influence of Jaco's would be Mick Karn. who encouraged Jaco to pick up the fretless bass in 2022. Jaco has gone on to incooperate Karn's virtuosic technique and unique sound into his own style of playing.
