You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard Jack Garrett‘s name mentioned on the music scene by now…
The 24-year-old Brit from Buckinghamshire has literally burst onto the scene recently being named by the BBC as its ‘Sound of 2016’ as well as being given the BRIT Awards Critic Choice awards – people just can’t get enough of him!
But that’s the thing, I had heard his name but not actually heard any of his music considering I don’t listen to the radio much these days.
I did hear he’d done a live lounge but I was yet to check it out until this weekend when I saw someone post a link of Twitter and I finally decided to get but act together and have a listen… and boy I wasn’t too disappointed.
Jack did a cover of his singer ‘Worry’ earlier in the month (above), and as well as being an awesome song, the singer also has the kind of passion that gets you excited and makes you really believe what he’s singing. As well as that, he also is a beast on the guitar, giving one of the best guitar solos I’ve ever heard in the live lounge.
As well as his single, Jack also did a cover of music’s other man-of-the-moment, Mr Craig David, with his tune ‘7 days’, which he mashed up with Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Senorita’ – I mean can it GET any better?
I don’t know why it took me so long to listen to Jack. I guess because I sometime don’t like just jumping on a bandwagon. But it this case I have to admit, the critics were right – you don’t want to miss out on this talent!
Hope you enjoy!
I’ve posted a few remixes on the blog before, however I’ve decided to come up with a new feature.
Basically, I’ll post you my favourite remix of the week every Wednesday to keep you going until the weekend!
This week I’ve picked this Benny Benassi remix of Florence + The Machine’s ‘Shake it Out’. The first time I heard this version, I instantly loved it.
I mean, this was a tune already, but this remix just takes it to new levels. It really makes me want Flo to come back too – where has she disappeared to>
