Jack Ward is an experienced production manager and backline technician with a demonstrated history of working in the music industry.


Known throughout the industry as a go to guy for any successful event or tour, Jack Ward is the founder and CEO of the Jack Ward Company, a multi-skilled production company, based in London, England. 


Jack comes from a family with a long history in the music industry. His mother was a costume designer for several international rock stars, including Greg Lake, and his father works for Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. 

 

Jack received a guitar from his parents on his fourth birthday and thus began his journey with the instrument. He was in several bands while attending secondary school and at the age of fourteen, he organised his first gig at a local music venue, with a line-up that showcased his talented peers. The show caught the attention of local promoter Jeff Ham which led to a four-year apprenticeship in producing and promoting intimate events, that featured acts such as, Cliff Moore, The Jives, Chris Jagger, So Watt (Featuring Jamie Roberts of Mungo Jerry), and Geno Washington, to name but a few.


He has since recorded with the likes of Dylan Burns (The Bodyrockers), Oscar Stewart Blandamer (Paul Young and the Q-Tips, Tom Jones), Sam Sharawi (Take That, K Koke) Ashley Kingsley (Beverley Knight, Chris Rea), Aaron Liddard (Amy Winehouse), and George McClean (All Stars). As well as collaborating creatively on projects with Dee Harlow (Mick Taylor’s Blues Band), Two Choices, Levon Silva (Six D) and Nay Nay. 

 

Jack’s career in production and touring began as a production assistant and backline technician, progressing through various live events and tours with groups such as, The Christians, The 335, Graham Parker, Doctor and the Medics, Levi Roots, Spandau Ballet, Keywest, The Wanted, Lawson, Steve Harley, Ali Campbell, Martin Fry, and Alex Bowler of Ted McKenna's band 'McKenna's Gold'. 


As production manager for some of the most prestigious concert tours and events, Jack is responsible for all operational aspects of the production, from sound and lighting, to worldwide strategy and transportation.


Mr. Ward is a big fan of studying psychology and personal development and in 2014, he certified as a practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotism.


With a diversified set of skills, the Jack Ward led Jack Ward Company continues to be a premier Production Company offering services in the music and entertainment industry.

"Jack was a great addition to our backline team when he worked for us. He understood the paradox of 'being there but not there'​ during the show and coped with the spontaneity of it all perfectly. His father has taught him well! I can highly recommend him to you."
