ANNOUNCES TWO INTIMATE PERFORMANCES IN SYDNEY & MELBOURNE THIS MAY
MELODY POOL TO OPEN BOTH SHOWS
ALBUM WRITTEN IN SCARS OUT NOW
Frontier Touring is thrilled to confirm two intimate performances for singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, this May. Savoretti will perform songs from his acclaimed fourth studio album Written In Scars (out now through Liberator/BMG), stopping off in Sydney and Melbourne. Supporting Savoretti will be one of Australia’s brightest upcoming singer-songwriter’s – Melody Pool.
Undoubtedly one of the breakout artists of the last year, Jack Savoretti’s UK gold-certified record Written in Scars, has touched the hearts and minds of fans around the globe. Singles ‘Catapult’ and ‘Home’ display Savoretti’s husky and intoxicating voice and knack for lyrical storytelling set against touching melodies, both melancholic and uplifting.
Produced by Jon Green (Ed Sheeran, James Bay) ‘Catapult’, showcases Jack’s incredible vocal range. A track that pours with heartfelt emotion and audible passion, it is set to solidify his status as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters around right now.
‘Written in Scars is a work of simple, clean and utterly delectable pop that has the panoramic sweep of cinema.’ – Pop Matters
‘The best thing about Written in Scars is its ability to be quiet and calming one minute, and blowing your mind with a well-put lyric and melody the next.’ – The Upcoming
‘Current and ever moving, enticing you to run with it and I am in.’ – Renowned For Sound
2016 has seen Jack perform live on a multitude of TV shows including The Graham Norton Show where he performed his touching ballad ‘Catapult’. This performance immediately propelled Jack into the iTunes Charts, introducing the world to the Brits natural talent for performing live.
‘The raw, gritty and unique texture of his voice is visible throughout his EP’s, but the sheer passion and dynamism he exudes is only truly captured live.’
– Red Brick
‘Jack Savoretti’s songs tonight had a personal passion, his vocal power and range showing his voice is exceptional, and his stage presence amenable.’
– Buzz Mag
Joining Jack on the stage is singer-songwriter Melody Pool. Melody burst onto the scene in 2013 with her debut album The Hurting Scene. The Australian declared it Album of the Year, with Iain Shedden calling it “one of the most accomplished debuts by an Australian singer-songwriter for many years”. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 best albums of 2013, stating, “Pool’s voice is sublime, her lyrics propelled by heartache”. Standout tracks from The Hurting Scene include ‘Somebody You’ve Never Met Before’ and ‘Henry’.
With the recent announce of her second album Deep Dark Savage Heart (out 29 April through liberation Music), Melody’s highly anticipated return saw the release of the album’s first single ‘Love, She Loves Me’. Later next month, Melody will embark on a national tour of Australia in support of Deep Dark Savage Heart.
‘Deep Dark Savage Heart is a step up and sideways musically from her previous outing.’ – Iain Shedden (The Australian)
‘A full-bodied string section and gentle bass undulations lie underneath Pool’s own soaring vocals — tender and pure’
– Rolling Stone Australia (on single ‘Love, She Loves Me’)
‘One of the country’s most exciting songwriters’ – The AU Review
