Jack Savoretti – Single release – August 6th

Jack Savoretti - Single release - August 6th

Half Italian & half English, Jack Savoretti travelled across Europe as a young boy with his parents and discovered music.

Haunting lyrics and spellbinding delivery have rapidly become the 23 year old’s trademark and his poetic musical storytelling have led to comparisons with songwriters such as Nick Drake and Damien Rice and on this, the fourth single from Jack’s debut album ‘Between The Minds’, Jack continues his musical narrative.

As a teenager, the only thing that interested him was poetry. “I was writing all the time, it was the thing to do, sit under a tree with a notebook, go somewhere else in your head. I was in the clouds.” When his mother gave him a guitar and suggested he try putting some of his words to music he was “surprised how much more people listen to you when you are singing than if you read a poem,” he admits. “After that, I couldn’t stop, it was constant writing, every day, it became almost a form of conversation, the way I interact with the world.”

The release of his album ‘Between The Minds’ earned Jack glowing praise from across the board with comparisons to Nick Drake & Damien Rice (Classic Rock Magazine), Ray LaMontagne (Word Magazine, Independent) and John Martyn and Van Morrison (Rock n Reel) yet Jack’s distinctive storytelling and husky voice ensured that he was able to take his place in its own right alongside these respected artists. His standing was further endorsed when Q awarded the album 4 stars and declared that Jack “stands out from the current glut of soft-lad singer-songwriters” and Mojo placed Jack at number 2 in their playlist saying “folk troubadour Savoretti has a voice to warm romantic hearts but he also has enough edge to maintain interest beyond the norm”.

With the release of his first two singles ‘Without’ and ‘Dreamers’ Jack received unprecedented level of play on Radio 2 and the station’s support continued when the album was made ‘Album Of The Week’ and the title track was subsequently playlisted. Having previously supported Corinne Bailey Rae, Jack maintained his live presence with a string of British headline dates and a series of in-store performances. Jack was also invited by Chris Martin to perform, alongside Dominic Miller and Robbie McIntosh, at a celebration of Martin guitars at London’s Hard Rock Café in May.

In June Jack is supporting Shawn Colvin on her UK tour and in July Jack will be performing at The Del Sonno Music Festival in the Tuscan village of Bagni di Lucca organized by Andy Davies, the producer of Jonathan Ross’ Radio 2 show.
