Multi-instrumentalist and multi-talented alternative rocker Jack Garratt promises to deliver an electrifying performance at O2 Academy Newcastle on Tuesday 8th November.

Audiences across the country have already been left similarly electrified and aghast by his extraordinary ability to play drums, pads, guitar, piano and to sing all at once. But aside from this, and his obvious unkempt charm, Garratt’s soothing yet scratchy voice provides his audience with the aural equivalent of a warm, comforting hug.

Garratt’s innovative, catchy songs like utilise simple recurring synth rhythms, making them impossible not to move along to. His slower melodies, encompassing classic instrumental staples, provide the perfect accompaniment to a voice of delicacy and real emotional depth.

Garrett’s success (aside from his versatility) is down to the breadth of his appeal, which manages to blend smooth rock and techno trills into an edgy and energetic alt. rock bundle.
