Renowned for his rugged soulful vocals and emotive lyricism, London born Samuel Jack spent his formative years in Johannesburg, with his film director Father. His unique and undeniably catchy sound oozes with the rich fabric of his colourful and nomadic upbringing.

Raised on Blues, Motown, soul and roots music, Jack aims to produce something with indisputable honesty and authenticity. “As always with my songs, I just want them to be 100% honest, open and vulnerable in some respects. No bars held”. It’s his candidness that allows audiences to connect on a more meaningful level and has ultimately been resonating with people across the globe.

His broad musical palette and sheer talent is evident in his highly anticipated album which is due early 2020. The album narrates the struggles with inner demons, the turbulence of family and relationships, the desire and want for something or someone and how music helps to build bridges and establish new relationships. There’s anthems, there’s ballads and there’s some heavy hitters. Jack expresses, “I listen to all sorts of music, but there is something about Blues, about Soul, about Gospel that just gets into my veins. The history of it all, the hurt, the pain, the joy, the sex. And when those emotions are delivered by a voice that really means it, I just feel like there can’t be a better way to express yourself”.

Following the release of the anthemic track ‘Feels Like Summer’, Jack is dropping the blazing new song ‘Fighting Fires’. Burning with passion in his voice, bold melodies and dramatic arrangements, Jack once again impresses listeners with his profound vocal tone. Inspired by frustration the single is infused with hip hop, pop and rock, a powerful song about escapism, overcoming and the drive to thrive. Everyone experiences their own obstacles in the journey of life, how you choose to navigate them determines the outcome. Jack shares, “I was growing more and more frustrated with the situation I found myself in, I felt like I had a million people to please and I was going under - but rather than let it kill me, the crux of the song is really that, I wouldn’t let it. Sometimes you just gotta dig deep to overcome”.

Jack has been making waves having garnered widespread recognition for his recent releases. He has played a plethora of international festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Larmer Tree Festival, as well as sharing stages with the likes of Passenger, Jack Savoretti and Jake Isaac.
