Following his critically acclaimed debut album 'Between The Minds', singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, returns this July with his second album, the charmingly titled 'Harder Than Easy'.

Full of inspirational soul, rock and blues, the album takes you on a unique journey, showcasing Jack's remarkable talent and re-introducing him as one of the fore-most and significant artists in the musical world.

Keeping his signature sound yet displaying a new found raw, grittiness, this album exposes Jack Savoretti, the man, the musician, in all his glory.

Recorded in LA at the legendary Jackson Browne’s studio with members of Tom Waits band (Larry Taylor & Steve Hodges), the Counting Crows (Charlie Gillingham & David Immergluck) and The Suppliers (James Morrison's band). It was mixed by the Grammy award winning Jack Joseph Puig (U2, Snow Patrol, John Mayer, Klaxons), making this a record of musical supremacy.

Opening with the joyous and uplifting "Map of The World" which recalls echoes of early Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, Jack demonstrates an instant progression and song writing maturity beyond his 25 years. As lead track and first single to be taken from the album, it is the perfect starting point to swiftly draw you in and lead on to what may prove to be Jack's defining moment: "Wonder".

Heart-rendering and beautiful beyond compare, "Wonder" captures and carries you with its raw emotion, allowing you to experience every word and every line sung by Jack's signature sinuous and husky vocals, with bare affection. Its fragile yet powerful tone, rich in desire and full of sentiment acquires a worthy comparison to the likes of Damien Rice, Ray Lamontagne, Jeff Buckley and Ben Harper.

Another important affinity being Nick Drake, whose magnificent track "Northern Sky" is covered by Jack on this album out of admiration and via special request from Nick Drake's estate. Respectful and yet unparalleled, Jack breathes new life into an exceptional classic.

Moving swiftly on to the stunning "Lost America" and charming "Mother", the album continues to determine a diversity sure to satisfy fans and attract new listeners. The haunting "Russian Roulette" provides another album highlight, whilst title track "Harder Than Easy" surpasses all expectations with its outstanding grace. Featuring the additional vocal talent of Lucy Styles, "Harder Than Easy" delivers a melody and performance so heart aching and tender, it is impossible not to be moved.

Finishing on a bluegrass high with "Patriot", a track with Neil Young sensibilities; the album draws to a close. The journey is complete, the talent is proved, this is an album and an artist to discover and fall in love with.
