With the Gallagher brothers still at loggerheads on their will they won’t they reunion shows, it’s thrilling when a new act channels the spirit of Britpop’s golden era yet isn’t afraid to include references to the more contemporary singer songwriters such as Jake Bugg/Jack Garrett/Kate Tempest et al within his music. Jack Perrett is one such new voice, youthful, bold, confident and unashamedly populist in his outlook and his songwriting.
Jack’s debut EP ‘What You Saying?’ gathered critical support across the UK as well as gaining plays in American and Australia. A side ‘Me And You’ was featured on ITV1’s This Morning television programme, whilst well known arbiter of all things cool and Welsh, Dave Owens included another of the EP tracks, ‘Drunk And Stoned’ in his Wales Online ‘Top 100 welsh songs of 2016’ playlist. Jack capped off a successful 2016 when he was voted into the Final 6 of Project: Aloft Star. In the final Jack performed in front music industry professionals including BBC Radio DJ’s Huw Stephens and Sian Anderson and Spector frontman Fred Macpherson.
Accompanied by his band, Jack has performed cities all over the UK including London, Cardiff, and Manchester alongside bands such as Judas, Vida and The Sherlocks. Performing at festivals such as Beano on the sea in Hastings, which involved iconic Britpop bands Cast, Reef and Echobelly. With the backing of promoters This Feeling, Jack is looking to go on a UK tour to kick start off what will be a very exciting 2018.
