Multi-instrumentalist Jack Ellis is delighted to have released his latest single The Storm, out now via District South Records and available to download for free from the Jack Ellis Soundcloud page.
Held together beautifully by Jack’s wonderful guitar playing and emotive vocals The Storm is a song that tackles themes of love and loss, as snapshots in our life strip us bare, leaving us afraid of allowing ourselves to love again. The track was initially released earlier in 2016 but has now been repackaged as a three and a half minute radio edit and has seen Jack gain significant support from the likes of Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, including Jack being invited into the studio to perform live.
The moving video for The Storm is now available to watch via Jack’s YouTube channel.
The radio edit of the single is also available to stream and download for free via Jack’s Soundcloud page.
Ahead of the release, Jack has made his previous single Pocket of Lint available to stream and download for free via his Soundcloud page with the video for the track also available to watch on Jack’s YouTube channel.
While growing up Jack was influenced by the likes of Jeff Buckley and REM and has taken on board their unerring ability to write and producing relatable yet emotional music, something which impressively shines through in the passion he puts into his music.
After playing in bands for several years, Jack took the decision to go solo in 2014 in order to focus on his songwriting and develop his own distinctive sound. The opportunity to play bass, guitar, piano and sing has allowed Jack to really stretch his creative muscles and, with the success of previous singles Pocket of Lint and Stepping Stones, it is clear that Jack’s music is making an impact on the wider music world.
Jack was voted Best Breakthrough Act 2015 and was nominated for Best Live Act at The Cardiff Music Awards, received radio plays from BBC Wales and BBC Radio 2 as well as online support from The Revue, Insomnia Radio, With Guitars and The Vinyl District. This has culminated in Jack becoming one of the rising stars of Welsh music, an artist who looks set to continue his growth through the release of his latest single.
