My guest this week on Desert Island Dishes is Jack Savoretti.
Singer and songwriter Jack Savoretti is described in pretty much every interview I came across as both extremely talented and also very charming perhaps it is this combination that has led to Jack’s stellar career. He tells us of his idyllic childhood Summers spent in the Italian Riviera, why he’s grateful that his success didn’t happen overnight and reveals a surprising yet delicious final desert island dish.
Jack’s one of the most successful singer / songwriters in the UK and has collaborated with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Bob Dylan and Nile Rogers and performed to a sold out Wembley Arena.
He had an international upbringing, with an Italian father and a German-Polish mother, moving from London to Switzerland, and spending idyllic childhood summers in Portofino, Italy, where his father’s family come from.
“I THINK I WOULD BE MORE KEEN TO GO TO THERAPY IF I KNEW I COULD HAVE LUNCH WITH MY THERAPIST!”
After falling in love with music at the age of 15 it was a somewhat slow-burning rise to fame for Jack as a musician. He toured the UK for several years, quietly growing his fanbase and it was his sixth album, Singing to Strangers, that finally hit the number-one spot. His most recent record, the gorgeous sun-soaked, feel-good and star-studded Europiana – inspired by his European upbringing and life –was also a chart-topper and arguably his best work to date.
