“We are delighted that Jack should achieve his greatest success yet with BMG.”
Jack Savoretti released his first single in 2006 and subsequently released three albums with two different labels.
Written In Scars, his first album for BMG, has now sold nearly twice as many copies as his first three albums put together.
His latest single ‘Catapult’ has been playlisted by BBC Radio 2 for five weeks and has just been added to the Magic network playlist.
Next month Savoretti embarks on a sold-out UK tour before playing dates in Germany, Spain and Italy.Music Business Worldwide
