More about Jack Savoretti
Jack Savoretti is thankful. “This is the first time I’ve made an album with a clear understanding of what I want it to sound like. Previously I’ve thrown it to the wind: show up in the studio with a song and let’s see what happens… This time there was a real discipline to the whole process. We stayed true to it.”
His fourth album Written In Scars (2015) reached the Top Ten a full year after its release, a performance of Catapult on The Graham Norton Show, well, catapulting the record into the upper reaches of the charts, pushing it to sales of some 150,000. “The luckiest thing that ever happened to me is not having a hit,” Savoretti declares, “because it’s never constrained me into having to repeat it.” Rather, he’s both liberated and propelled – which is what happened immediately after the slow-burn success of Written In Scars. Savoretti wrote, recorded and toured Sleep No More (2016) straight away. “That kept us on the road again, three to four years. We stopped a year ago – then we got offered this John Legend European support tour. That was an experience we couldn’t say no to. “It was a very bonding time,” he continues.

“Music is such a powerful way to convey my thoughts and ideas; it’s like a journal, a true snapshot of my life.” – Ava Della Pietra
