  Lomax was a member of Dee and the DynamitesThe Undertakers, The Lomax Alliance, Heavy Jelly and Badger. He worked with The Tea Bags, George Harrison, Eric ClaptonJeff BeckLeon Russell and Nicky Hopkins.

     In January 1962, Jackie Lomax left Dee and the Dynamites to join the Merseybeat band, The Undertakers. They followed The Beatles' route through local venues before setting out for Hamburg, Germany, and securing a recording contract. They released four singles. After leaving Apple, Lomax joined a band called Heavy Jelly and they released a single on Head Records.

    He joined Badger, a progressive rock band originally formed by ex-Yes keyboard player Tony Kaye, and turned them into a R&B and soul band he had used on his solo albums. The band became a vehicle for Lomax's songs and singing but was short-lived, releasing only one album "White Lady". Lomax crossed the Atlantic to resume his solo career and Capitol Records signed him in 1975. He released two Capitol albums, "Livin' for Lovin' " and "Did You Ever Have That Feeling ?" before leaving the label in 1977.
