Jack Broadbent is no ordinary singer songwriter. He can break your heart and then turn around and set the world on fire. Combining elements of Blues, Folk, Rock n Roll and Jazz, Broadbent carries a lineage of true artistry into the 2000s that sets him apart from the rest.

His initial rise to fame was for his unique and explosive slide guitar playing. This notoriety was quickly solidified by his superb songwriting. Broadbent went from busking the streets of Europe to smashing the world stage alongside some of the biggest names in rock n roll.

Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones credits Broadbent with “keeping the flag flying”.

Legendary southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd simply call him “badass”.

His most recent shows opening for Peter Frampton on his farewell tour in Europe were met with rave reviews. Frampton himself praising Broadbent as “a wonderful player”.

Broadbent has single handedly thrilled audiences on the international festival circuit, including Montreux Jazz Festival where he was hailed as “the new master of the slide guitar”.

After six album releases Broadbent’s range is impressive. Stylistically, it’s a perfect blend of raw emotion and yet controlled chaos, best described by Bill Payne of Little Feat and The Doobie Brothers following a recent tour.

“Jack is a true artist. He is fearless, his horizons are endless. What he shares is reflective of a someone who cares deeply, not afraid to question things, not afraid to reexamine if the situation calls for it. In short, he is sharing his life with us. I love his voice. His playing is superb, showing an almost reckless abandon when he gets revved up, he is performing on the edge, and if he falls so be it. The pieces will not break. Jack Broadbent can whisper or shout in equal order with the power and sensitivity that speak volumes. Embrace his music, his life’s work. You will be amply awarded”.
