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, and poignant folk and blues inspired vocals.
Born June 15th, 1988 in Lincolnshire, rural England, Jack grew up listening to artists like Peter Green, Robert Johnson, Davey Graham, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, to name a few. These legends of rock, roots, folk and blues influenced 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 electrified 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 in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, the US and Canada.
With four full length albums under his belt, a new album on the way in summer 2018, and an international tour in the works, this dynamic musician’s career is going full throttle.
Don’t miss the unforgettable musical experience that is Jack Broadbent live.
