Jack Savoretti

Jack Savoretti is currently recording his much-anticipated third album. As of yet untitled and due for 2011 release, this record sees Jack teaming up once again with celebrated producer/ songwriter Steve Booker. Not since co-writing songs for Jack’s debut, Between The Minds, have the pair worked together. In the meantime it’s fair to say, if not a little of an understatement, that both have kept themselves very busy. Steve Booker has received accolade after accolade, most notably for his co-write of Duffy’s worldwide hit Mercy. Jack on the other hand went from being one of 6 artists to watch on Jo Whiley’s Inside Track to achieving Radio 2’s Record of the Week. He also released his second album Harder Than Easy. Unfortunately, only a US release made the cut as Jack departed from his Record Label briefly after. However, even without touring, the album nevertheless received impressive support from US TV Networks, featuring prominently on Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill and Greek. While Jack’s song writing has always surpassed expectation, this new collection of songs sees an artist coming of age. Perhaps extensive touring through the UK and Europe sharing stages with Corinne Bailey Rae and Gavin De Graw provided him the perfect environment in which to flourish, otherwise known as that age old finishing school for artists, the road. Or maybe time spent during the Harder Than Easy sessions at Jackson Browne’s studio with musicians the calibre of Larry Taylor (Canned Heat) proved an invaluable source of inspiration. No one can say really, but this album will shine a light on a talent stepping out of the shadows and he will leave you wanting more.
