Straight Up Genius 17/11/20
Today's Video Of The Day is 'Straight Up Genius’, the forthcoming new single from young UK singer/songwriter Jack Blackman, available on all digital platforms from Friday 27th November. It's a 160 second trip featuring jangling 12 string, slide guitar, swirling Wurlitzer and rich vocal harmonies, plus the track’s addictive 60's vibe showcases a side to Jack’s musicality that is often overlooked. 'Straight Up Genius’ was written by Blackman, and in addition to his vocals, guitars, banjo and percussion, it also features Adam Barry on keyboards, James Maguire on bass/backing vocals and David Vaughan on drums. The accompanying video was created by The Artful Doodler, who perfectly brings Blackman’s Straight Up Genius character to life. Fast developing into one the most accomplished and exciting young performers on the Roots scene today, Jack has performed all across the UK and as far as the Mississippi Delta.
