The next edition of the Selected curated concert series will be hosted by Jack GarrattLondon-based singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt combines electric guitar, drum machines, keyboards, and an R&B-friendly falsetto to fashion smooth, club-ready electro-pop. The critically acclaimed artist topped the BBC Sound of 2016 list. He has also won the Brits Awards Critics' Choice prize and the BBC Introducing trophy at the BBC Music Awards. 

"His sound is a mix of James Blake's swerving electronics, Pharrell's falsetto choruses and, occasionally, Future Islands' growl"


In 2016 Jack Garratt released his debut album ‘Phase’ on Island Records. The multi-instrumentalist wrote, arranged and performed every track. In the same year Garratt was awarded a number of prestigious British music accolades and embarked on a world tour, ending in two sold out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in 2017. In the immediate aftermath Garratt wrote and swiftly discarded a draft of album two, before setting up in the studio with co-producers James Flannigan and Jacknife Lee – embarking on what would become his sophomore album ‘Love, Death & Dancing’. In February 2020 Vol. 1 of the album (tracks 1 – 3) was unleashed into the world with lead single ‘Time’ receiving its first play as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1. Jack has described ‘Love, Death & Dancing’ as, “dance music for people who don’t want to go out,” and detailed how it chronicles his battle with depression, anxiety, and self-doubt.
