Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m Samuel Jack, a singer-songwriter raised in London/Johannesburg, and when I’m not on the road I’ll likely be in South West UK ☺️

How did you get into music?

I fell in love with music at an early age thanks to my parents’ love of blues, soul, and Motown but didn’t really think about songwriting my own until my mid-late teens. It was around that time I taught myself how to play piano and sang my first note.
How would you describe your musical style?
A soulful lashing of pop.

What can you tell us about your latest single, “Feels Like Summer”?

Feels like summer was such a fun song to write. I wanted to write happy. That’s not always the easiest thing to do lemme tell ya, but this one is full of nostalgia and it reminisces about the good old times. I just hope it makes people smile and feel good like it does me.

What can audiences expect from your upcoming album?

Honesty. There are some heavy hitters in there, ballads, anthems. I’ve been working towards this for the past couple of years, songs I’ve written along the way, through my journey so far. And I’m hoping it marks the beginning of loads more to come.
What’s it like having your music features in big shows like “Shameless” and “Nashville”?
It’s awesome, and always a bit weird when you hear your voice on the tele. More coming shortly 🙂

Do you have any live shows coming up? What’s the experience like for those that see you live?

I do. London St Pancras old church on July 11th. Then I have some more European dates in Autumn. I’ve really developed my live show over the last couple years, I run with either a stripped acoustic lineup or full band, either way, audiences can expect to see a man that’s singing like he means it.

What advice would you have for aspiring singers/songwriters?

Be yourself. And to never let anyone tell you to forgo your dreams for ‘a proper job’. Work hard, learn the craft, collaborate lots and stay focused.

What’s your life like outside of music?

To be honest, life is music. It’s one and the same. Right now it’s hard to find a balance between career and personal life, but when I have a bit of spare time you can find me cooking and drinking all the wine ☺️
