Giovanni “Jack” Savoretti is an English solo acoustic singer of Italian descent. “Sleep No More”, his 3rd album, features original songs that are set to establish Jack as one of the UK’s biggest male artists. On this career -defining album, Jack Savoretti has well and truly found his voice, both as a singer and as a songwriter. Jack worked with a variety of producers including Mark Ralph (Years and Years/Take That), Sam Dixon (Adele), Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini), Cam Blackwood (George Ezra) and Steve Robson (James Bay, John Newman and James Morrison).
Following his breakthrough album in 2015, Jack Savoretti is back with a new album Sleep No More. He worked with an array of producers including Sam Dixon (Adele), Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini), Cam Blackwood (George Ezra) and Steve Robson (James Bay) when writing the album. Sleep No More is a collection of timeless songs by Savoretti. Savoretti describes Sleep No More as an open love letter to his wife, actress Jemma Powell, saying that it describes the things about a relationship that keep you up at night, ruminating. Having found his true artist voice in the album Written In Scars, Savoretti gives us more of himself in his music. His authenticity has been activated and shines through the music of his latest album, commanding your attention. His sincerity and honesty about his own short comings, passions and thoughts evoke a strong emotional response as you listen to especially musically intense tracks such as I’m Yours, Tight Rope and Lullaby Loving. Savoretti gives us the sentimentality we crave without the schmaltz.
Although the album’s lyrical content mostly delves into the complicated dynamics of a romantic relationship, there are more than a handful of tracks that you can rock out to. When We Were Lovers, the lead single, and Troubled Souls are driving and energetic. Helpless and We Are Bound are tracks to dance away your sorrows. Throughout Sleep No More, Savoretti gives a stellar vocal performance. His warm, masculine and gravelly voice, singing his soothing melodies is inviting; I could listen to it all day, every day. His song writing ability is strong and secure. He sticks to a folk rock sound, but adds just a hint of electronica which is a perfect touch to distinguish his sound.
Overall Sleep No More is an outstanding album that can be revisited in years to come and still be relevant in its sound and lyrical content.
