Samuel Jack is a unique and emotive storyteller whose rugged soulful vocals command the room. Raised on blues, motown, soul and roots music, the London born singer spent his formative years in Johannesburg with his father, a film director. The rich fabric of his childhood informs and oozes into the music he creates today which has been resonating with audiences across the globe.
“Feels Like Summer” emits a summer-like and feel good vibe through its use of stomping percussion, anthemic melodies and bright brass. Highlighting Jack’s powerful gravelly vocals and passionate lyricism, the single bursts with vibrancy, all consumed by shimmering soundscapes. Lyrically, “Feels Like Summer” centers around celebrating the good times and how something can make you feel alive and ultimately wishing you could live in that moment forever. Jack reveals, “There’s definitely a sense of nostalgia about the whole song. I wrote it at a time when I needed those good times to see me through some stuff. Music can totally transcend time and space and take you to all sorts of places when you’re not exactly where you want to be. That’s what this song is for me. It takes me back, it takes me forward, it takes me through”.
His new music video for “Feels Like Summer” showcases the true meaning of summer, through the use of stunning colorful animated and cinematic scenes. Beachscapes, flip flops, sunglasses, carnival rides and fireworks are just a few of the visuals you’ll see when watching the video. These images scream happiness and excitement for summer and memories made. Jack’s debut album will be released in autumn of 2019.
