http://www.jacksavoretti.com/ With his husky voice, a head full of catchy tunes and a story to tell, Jack Savoretti would seem to have everything it takes. Yet, just one year ago - with two albums already to his name, a raft of rave reviews, and a legion of fans from five years of solid gigging - Jack was about to pack it all in. Having left his former label and management, he had become thoroughly disillusioned with the music biz at the age of 27.

Jack Savoretti (born 10 October 1983) is an Italian English solo acoustic singer who began playing guitar at 16. He was brought up in London before moving to Lugano, a Swiss town near the Italian border. Moving around Europe as a child he wound up at The American School In Switzerland where he picked up an accent he describes as "transatlantic mutt".
Burn Magazine has compared his songwriting to that of Simon & Garfunkel, London's Daily Telegraph describes his guitar playing as having a "primal magic about it,' and some music industry insiders are already buzzing around calling him the new Bob Dylan.
