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 the past few years wowing international audiences with his unique blend of acoustic and slide guitar playing, and poignant folk- and blues-inspired vocals.
Born in rural Lincolnshire, England, Jack grew up listening to artists like Radiohead, Robert Johnson, Joni Mitchell and Davey Graham. These legends influenced Jack’s distinctive song writing, singing, production, and performance style, giving his music depth and heart that defies strict musical genre. 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, Peter Frampton, Johnny Hallyday, Tony Joe White, Jack has headlined a series of international tours, playing sold out shows in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, the US and Canada. www.jackbroadbent.co.uk
