Samuel Jack – Gonna Be Alright

Samuel Jack was born in London, moved to Johannesburg aged 12 and has now settled down in Dorset, UK. He once described himself as β€˜a poor man, with a rich mind’ and he used to write and record in a caravan. The first fruit of those sessions was his debut EP Live From My CaravanΒ (I’m not making this up).

A few EP’s and numerous separate tracks later, he’s finally ready to unveil his debut album Empty Pockets, Crowded Heart. Out in March, it combines the blues, Motown, soul and roots music from his childhood with his new love for hip hop and pop.

Lead single Gonna Be Alright is a celebration of recovery. The song stands as a reminder that we have to keep telling ourselves we can overcome anything and that all is going to be alright. It touches on very personal issues about dealing with anxiety and depression. However, Jack juxtaposed this heavy concept with an upbeat, joyous feeling, gradually building the track into a huge, anthemic chorus.
