Having capped 2022 with his trilogy release 'Heaven Help Me’, ‘Hollow Warmth’ and ‘Form Over Function’, Jack Valero debuted his solo career with comparisons to Tom Petty and Elvis Costello. His conversational lyricism, understated wit alongside spirited Americana/rock instrumentation and a knack for timeless British pop songwriting caught the attention of new music champions, earning airplay from John Kennedy at Radio X, Amazing Radio and Chris Hawkins at 6 Music being moved to say ‘This is so good. SO good…What a beautiful thing’.
2023 has kicked off with Jack signing with respected indie label Modern Sky to release his new tracks recorded at Echo Zoo Studios, produced by Romeo Stodart (The Magic Numbers) and engineered by Dave Izumi.
