When an artist can just STAND on the stage and get everyone's attention with just-one-note, then that artist truly has a gift. We saw that with some Motown late greats, as well as, some pop artists from the 1980s. It's the voice - so outstanding that it can stand alone, and only gets magnified by the music.
Today, you can see and feel that effect with Samuel Jack. That is exactly the takeaway I took when I was introduced to his voice – utter amazement. So, you know what happened once the music joined that voice? mind blown!
His latest track “Feels Like Summer” starts with Samuel Jack showcasing his seductive silk-laced baritone in an elusive setting and singing “there was something in the water making me go ‘wow’!” and he keeps us glued to this in-the-now track by letting this song steadily evolve with a soulful groove.
The song’s lyrics revolve around the story of how a glance from a lover, the touch of one’s hand, or the thought of a lover, can take us back to a place in our youth that makes us shine – like summer.
The brass section and guitars just highlight Samuel Jack’s sunsoaked melodies, while the handclaps are reminiscent of old school Soul and R&B tracks. In addition, the percussions give the song that heartbeat suiting Samuel Jack’s soulful delivery spot-on.
The video is so fresh and filled with in-your-face CGI and practical real-life views highlighted with vibrant colors. It is as if you are seeing life through technicolor shades, and the song matches that view – living life in full color!
It’s all here friends; and, you want to be there! Samuel Jack makes a complex composition seem effortless!
