Hailed as “The new master of the slide guitar” by the Montreux Jazz Festival and “The real thang” by the legendary Bootsy Collins, Jack Broadbent has spent the past year wowing international audiences with his unique blend of virtuosic acoustic and slide guitar technique, and poignant folk and R&B inspired vocals.
Born and raised in rural England, Jack grew up listening to artists such as John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, Robert Johnson, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, to name a few. These legends of rock, blues, roots and folk inspired Jack’s distinctive song writing, singing and performance style, which have a depth and heart that defies strict musical genres. Jack‘s performances exude a warmth, humour and energy that has excited and inspired audiences worldwide.
Following a string of successful shows opening for legendary artists, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Johnny Hallyday, Robben Ford, and Tony Joe White, Jack headlined his own whirlwind international tour, playing sold out shows for music lovers in Europe, New Zealand, Japan, the US and Canada. 2017 will be a big year for Jack as he works on a new album and continues touring internationally.
With three full length albums under his belt, tens of millions of YouTube views and a devoted army of fans, this young musician’s career is going full throttle.
Don’t miss the electrifying and unforgettable musical experience that is Jack Broadbent live.
