Glasswerk presents Samuel Jack

Please note this is an 18+ event

“I was raised by the sounds and the words of redemption song.”
Samuel Jack. A unique, intelligent and emotive storyteller with a rugged soulful vocal that commands the room. Raised on a diet of Blues, Motown, soul and roots music, Samuel was born in London, before moving to Johannesburg at the age of 12.

Now settled in Dorset, writing and recording in a caravan, Samuel is releasing his debut EP later in the year. The songs on the EP were refined on the battered piano in his local pub, often in front of the regulars in return for a tab; Samuel was literally singing for his supper.

“I’m a poor man, with a rich mind.”

Last year Samuel Jack had the privilege of opening The Avalon Stage at Glastonbury Festival and he’s been wowing audiences at a string of private clubs in Los Angeles & London.
This year Samuel has appeared at a number of Sofar Sounds shows as well as performing at the Innocent Unplugged and Larmer Tree Festivals. He has been championed by both BBC Introducing, Robert Elms and did a live session for BBC London in July.
Samuel has also had his music featured on a number of US TV shows, including most recently Nashville, Satisfaction, About A Boy and Grimm.
