hmv's Next Big Thing... #261 Jack Curley
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising singer-songwriter Jack Curley...
Who Is He?
Curley is a 21-year-old Manchester native and in the midst of a rapid rise. Last year he was still a fixture at open mic nights, but now, after the success of his first single 'Alice', he bagged himself a series of slots at European festivals and began to seriously make a name for himself.
Now a part of Parlophone Records, Curley's self-titled debut EP arrives this month and he can start building towards his debut album...
What Does He Sound Like?
Curley's sound is in the same vein as James Bay and Lewis Capaldi, minimal instrumentation and powerhouse choruses. It's a sound steeped in Carole King, Fleetwood Mac and Elton John.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Big vocals and an ear for a whopping, whopping great chorus.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. His new single 'Wait For Me' is below for your listening pleasure...
