I´ll also tell you that Jack is born 1983 and he is an Italian English singer/songwriter who has released four studio albums to date: Between the minds 2007, Harder than easy 2009, Before the storm 2012 and Written in scars 2015
The album Written in Scars has been praised in which, among others, the Independent and Q Magazine gave the album 4/5. The album, which is largely an inspiring work about overcoming adversity, is also one of the most sold in England so far this year. BBC Radio 2 drew Written in Scars Their Album of the Week on 1 February 2015 and Tesco Also made it Their Album of the Week on 10 April 2015. In Sweden the single Tie Me Down from the latest album has been on rotation on P4 fourteen weeks now.

Jack has also done some soundtrack to the films The sisterhood of the travelling Pants 2, Post Grad and Universitari.
He has also been in Tv shows as One Tree Hill, The Cleaner, EastEnders, Grey´s Anatomy, Greek, The Vampire Siaries and Sons of Anarchy.

On his wbside he write: Four years ago, he quit making music. He’d had enough – of scratching a living as an independent artist, of business bust-ups, of being touted as a soon-to-be star. He’d spent two years (and all of his savings) in legal dispute with a former manager and seen the release of his second album so botched it barely came out. He was 26 and recently married, with a baby on the way. ”I thought that was my run, I’d had fun and now it was time to get a proper job,” says Savoretti. ”I was done with music and, honestly, I didn’t mind.”
What happened next couldn’t have surprised the singer more. ”As soon as I said, ’screw this’, I couldn’t stop writing,” he recalls. ”I wrote out of anger, although the songs were more of a cry for help. It was the best, most personal music I’d ever made. I realised I had really learnt how to write, how to express exactly what was in my head.”
