If we tell you Jack Broadbent plays mind-blowing slide guitar with a whiskey flask, we think you’ll move right up front to check out his performance. None other than Bootsy Collins calls him “the real thang,” and he’s hailed as, “The new master of the slide guitar,” by the Montreux Jazz Festival. The Englishman with the flowing locks and old soul vocals has influences like John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, Robert Johnson, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell that he weaves into his captivating writing and playing. From humble beginnings as a busker to playing before international audiences, Jack is a musician in his ascendency, destined to be an influence on others, destined to be ranked alongside his musical heroes. As a fan remarked, “He deserves to be famous already.” We agree.
