Jack Valero

Mar 15, 2023

10:00pm – 10:40pm CT


If honest, conversational songs and a big voice are your things, then singer-songwriter Jack Valero has got you covered. Influenced by the likes of Tom Petty, DMAs, and more latterly Sam Fender reflecting his other enduring love of a huge tune. Studying music in Brighton, he soon realised that he thrived more being out in 'the thick' of the music scene rather than the classroom. He decided to leave his studies behind, and throw all of his energy into building his next band, the indie rock outfit, ‘The RPMs’ - who after signing to Xtra Mile Recordings went on to release three EPs, tour the UK, play the BBC Music Introducing stage at Glastonbury and Austin’s SXSW Festival in Texas.

Due to the impending pandemic in 2019, Jack began streaming live performances from his living room which he did between working shifts at his local Covid Test Site. Lockdown for Jack also meant plenty of time to write new music, and with a clutch of new tracks recorded at Echo Zoo Studios, produced by Dave Izumi, the second song of a three-track EP is out now.
