Jack Clarke is an 18 year old singer-songwriter from SevenOakes in Kent. Despite his young age, he has already made a big impact on the local music scene by performing at various venues in Kent and London. Jack also once held a weekly residency at the Zed Music Cafe in Sevenoakes.
He is currently in the process of working on his debut E.P. which is highly anticipated by many. He has been writing original material, one of these tracks is named “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off.” This track is one of the most beautiful and relaxing combination of music and lyrics I have ever heard, I can definitely see why Mr. Clarke has received the kudos he has from promoters and music press alike. For such a young lad, he has a certain charm about him that you just can’t help but fall for.
The combination and blend of the instruments that have been used on this record falls nothing short of perfection. Literally everything within in the mix is where is should be, vocals and guitar at the front, with the rest of the band sitting comfortably in the background.
If I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t expecting something so well thought out (lyrically and musically) to be produced from someone of 18 years old. It’s music like “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off” that restores my faith in the music industry, with each strum of the guitar and utterance of a word, I became more and more entwined within Jack’s genius.
This young man is going to go far, that’s one definitive conclusion I’ve drawn from listening to just a few tracks on his Soundcloud page.
