Raised on a diet of Blues, Motown, soul and roots music, Samuel Jack was born in London but spent
much of his childhood bouncing between Clapham, Johannesburg and the Netherlands as his parents moved around for work. With such a nomadic childhood it’s perhaps not surprising that Samuel, after leaving home at 16, currently lives, writes and records his unique style of contemporary soul in a caravan on the outskirts of a small village in Somerset
His authentic sound and intimate songwriting, which is often compared to the likes of Sam Smith, Hozier and Sam Cooke, has captivated audiences both at home and across the pond in America. His music has been supported by, amongst others, BBC Introducing/ BBC Radio 2, Graham Norton and KRCW Los Angeles. Samuel’s music has also been featured on a number of TV series, including most recently Nashville, Satisfaction, About A Boy, Grimm and Bull. This past year the singer-songwriter embarked on an extensive tour through the UK, with a performance at Glastonbury as highlight. The tour has recently been extended and will continue in the coming months.
In the coming months Samuel Jack will be releasing several singles, followed by his debut EP. The first singles Let It All Out and Mama Don’t Know Better are now available.
