Jack Garratt is a name on the rise, yet you knew that already. The R&B crooner has released several singles, the most recent with Gallant where the duo gave Janet Jackson‘s “I Get Lonely” a soulful makeover. Now, following an explosive introduction, Jack Garratt continues to blow up expectations by letting the music do all the talking for him. His hard work and persistence has paid off, as Jack is unveiling not one, but two tracks that are totally worth your ear’s digestion. “Far Cry” and the demo cut, “Boy You Should Know Better” are two electrified cuts that help prove that Jack Garratt is one of the leading voices coming out of the UK.
Phase has already outpaced most of the competition as one of the fastest selling British debut albums of the year, while Jack’s live performances pull on heartstrings from Glasgow to Bournemouth. With his biggest run in the UK happening later this winter (see the tour dates below) — Jack Garrett has added another jewel in his growing crown of awesomeness. Rather to confound than become a one-note, one-trick pony — “Far Cry” and “Boy You Should Know Better” are two songs that follows Jack’s own formula, which makes the music sound fresh, exciting and invigorating.
Listen to the one-man-band, Jack Garratt and his two releases, “Far Cry” and “Boy You Should Know Better” in the spaces below. Let his well-conceived music fill in the gaps in your earholes.
