“Touching songs and a soulful husky voice lift him above the ordinary and into the realms of Nick Drake / Damien Rice”. (Classic Rock)Jack Savoretti takes a step nearer to realising his dream with the announcement that he will be supporting triple Brit nominee Corinne Bailey Rae on her UK tour. The tour kicks off in at Manchester Apollo on March 13th, visiting Newcastle, Leeds, Birmingham, Glasgow and Southampton before concluding at the Hammersmith Apollo on March 22ndJanuary has been a very good month for Jack Savoretti. His single ‘Dreamers’ walked straight onto the Radio 2 A List, TOTP2 invited him to perform on the show and critics put their heads above the parapet to praise him. Whilst comparisons to Nick Drake, Ray LaMontagne and Damien Rice are frequent, Jack is very much his own man who writes raw, honest songs which he performs with a soulful, husky voice. Live, accompanied by just his acoustic guitar, Jack brings to mind storytellers such as Suzanne Vega or Simon and Garfunkel and the audience can look forward to Jack performing a selection of songs from his debut album ‘Between The Minds’. Jack: “The last couple of weeks have been pretty surreal. Every day my manager is phoning me with good news – last week she told me about the Radio 2 playlist and that was pretty cool. Then two days later I received the call telling me that Corinne had invited me onto her tour. Corinne is an artist I respect, who has been writing and recording for many years and who has finally ’cracked it’ through hard work, great songs and a gorgeous voice. When you have worked hard towards a dream for quite a few years, and then that dream seems as though it might actually become a reality…well that is such an exciting feeling. I really am looking forward to being on the road and to sharing my songs with the audience – there is nothing better!”Mar 13 Manchester Apollo
