Today, Lymm singer-songwriter Jack Woodward has released his brand new single, ‘Higher’ a standout piece of songwriter pop. The introduction forebodes a haunting, gospel-tinged track that shows a maturity beyond Jack’s years. We’re instantly struck by a thick, bassey vocal line that develops with exceptional harmonies in the chorus. Hook-driven, motivational and uplifting at its core. ‘Higher’ crosses boundaries of genre, style and form to provide a sweeping piece of uplifting songwriter pop.
With his previous EP ‘Fly Away’ receiving support from tastemaker radio stations such as Amazing Radio & BBC Introducing, as well as a string of regional stations. Jack is now looking to develop his sound with a new release that establishes him as one of the UK’s most promising new singer-songwriters.
Like many great singer-songwriters, Jack has been brought up on a strong musical diet.
Raised as a Bruce Springsteen obsessive, he proudly still goes to gigs with his whole family, citing The Killers as a family favourite. Like many artists, Jack was introduced to his favourite music by an older brother and has become a complete obsessive since then. His musical palette then developed to the likes of Newton Faulkner, Tom Odell, John Mayer, Foo Fighters and loads more, developing his own hunger for songwriting.
“’Higher’ came into being after kick starting my songwriting again about a year ago. The track is just about feeling alive and not forgetting to live now alongside and with the beauty of the world. Higher really takes me out of my own head and makes me aware of the rest of the world.
With Jack now with a full band formed behind him, look out for him at future shows and events. Give Jack Woodward a like on facebook here, and let us know what you think of ‘Higher’. Also, check out Jack’s cover of a well loved track by The Killers, recorded by [WAM].
