[SOUNDS OF 2016] #2 - Jack Garratt

After a relentless 2014, Jack came into 2015 with a wave of optimism behind him - andcombine that with a trip to the highly rated SXSW Festival in Austin, TX - he's been riding high all year, with NME, Radio 1 and Radio X all playing his tracks, almost religiously. During high summer he released "Weathered", which got him some more love, but this time not just from the high profile outlets but the general public.

Shows were selling out quickly, he was playing bigger stages and some major festivals too, with Ellie Goulding covering his tune "Weathered" during October he suddenly gained a whole new fanbase with her cover getting well over a million plays! But Jack himself you just need to think of James Blake's soothing vocals with some breakbeats from Ghostpoet and a soothing acoustic guitar, and you're there, bliss!

Jack Garratt's debut album "Phase" is due for release by Island Records on 19th February 2016, and when they album was announced it was revealed that he will be taking on his own headline show at the O2 Academy Brixton on 15th April 2016. If you want to listen to something now that'll be on his debut EP check out 'Breathe Life'. It's most definitely yet another hit track from the man himself, containing catchy electronic beats mixed with memorable lyrics and unique musical experimentation for the duration of the song.

Jack has had a great 2015 and the next 12 months will push him furthur into the publics conciousness. Be sure to keep an eye on him, he's one for the future, that's for sure!
