Jackie Lomax, signed to Apple Records as a songwriter and artist, has passed away in the Wirral, Merseyside after a short illness.

From the Apple released album "Is This What You Want?":

"Jackie Lomax is a singer of energy and passion. His roots are in R&B and in the best tradition of blue-eyed soul (even if his eyes are green). There’s a toughness to his vocal style and a sensitive side too; his songs speak of loss and longing, love and life. Is this what you want? What more can there be?"
