Blues & folk

Like many of his colleagues, the young British singer/songwriter started out as a street musician on the toughest stage in the world. His live shows and his unique style on the slide guitar have benefited immensely from this - today Jack Broadbent is considered a great insider tip on the European blues & folk scene. He comes from a family of musicians in rural England and was exposed to a broad musical spectrum at a young age. John Lee Hooker, Peter Green and Robert Johnson, but also Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are among his early influences, but he developed his very own style first and foremost as a traveling troubadour. He moved to London, where he played on the streets, but also at the famous Hope & Anchor in Islington. Appearances as a support act for well-known acts and festival appearances at Glastonbury and the Secret Garden Party have made him better known and his internet videos have been clicked hundreds of thousands of times. Jack Broadbent belongs to the new generation of artists whose music is deeply rooted in the blues, but who are clearly breaking new ground of their own. In 2015, the self-produced debut album "Trail of Tears", which documents his musical development, was released to the delight of his ever-growing fan base. Motor With a full tank and heavy luggage, Motor takes you on an adventurous road trip through music history - from Death Valley to the Highlands. Dusty songs from the 1950s to contemporary classics - rock'n'roll with acoustic guitars, unique voices and a tank full of energy!
