Jack Perrett is an indie singer/songwriter from Newport, South Wales. Jack released his first EP ‘What You Saying?’ under the guidance of Estrons producer Steffan Pringle in 2015 to critical acclaim, receiving airplay and playlist status on BBC Radio Wales. Jack went viral in August 2018 when he released ‘Portlife’ (a parody of Blur’s ‘Parklife’) with a video achieving over 130k views. Jack followed his previous success by releasing a single called ‘Like A Fever’ which attracted the likes of Fred Perry subculture and national promoters ‘This Feeling’ to brand the song as a ‘high class out and out indie banger’. The track has achieved national airplay on BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins), and on Radio X (John Kennedy and Gordon Smart) - where it achieved track of the day status. Jack’s latest release ‘Going Nowhere’ has also received support from industry professionals with plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio Wales. After touring on the This Feeling ‘Big in 2019’ tour, Jack performed at major UK festivals including Isle of Wight, The Great Escape and Off The Record Festival in 2019 and was also selected to be on the BBC Horizons 2019 roster.
