Preview: Jack Savoretti at O2 Guildhall, Southampton


Jack Savoretti‘s music can be a little hard to define, but always holds a rich core, and a blend of every place he has visited. Having been brought up in London, with an Italian father, and many of his years spent moving around Europe, it’s no wonder that his voice can bring a wealthy of worldly mystery into form.

Savoretti proudly stepped forward onto the music scene once more with 2015’s Written in Scars. His fifth album, it offered everything from Mumford & Sons style quick-strumming through deep, treacle-thick numbers. His songs each have a unique quality while still blending into sublime listenability. 2016’s offering, Sleep No More, is currently available to stream on Apple Music, with physical and digital release soon to follow on the 28th October.

The first taste of Sleep No More which listeners may have sampled is ‘When We Were Lovers’. A pop-rock anthem with a strong folk heart, it will appeal to fans of the likes of Bastille. Meanwhile, smoky and powerful vocals keep him as an undeniable contemporary to Paolo Nutini or George Ezra. It’s sit back and listen music, just as much as it is belt-out-in-a-crowd music. He promises to put on quite a show.

Savorretti will be visiting the likes of London’s Eventim Apollo and Glasgow’s O2 Academy during his tour, stopping at O2 Guildhall, Southampton on the 6th November.
