IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT
Today (Friday 17th Sept) sees Indie rock singer-songwriter Jack Rasmussen share his heart-felt emotional third single ‘In A Different Light’
Building on support and repeat plays from BBC Introducing, “In A Different Light” sees a more vulnerable side to Jack who continues to showcase an ability to write openly and honestly.
Influenced by artists such as Sam Fender, Tom Grennan & The Smiths, Jack’s style spans acoustic indie rock, with a hint of 90’s Brit-Pop. The young singer-songwriter turns his personal experiences into anthems with universal appeal for all to enjoy.
Jack is no stranger to the industry. His music career began in the shape of indie band VELVET. Together, the collective played multiple shows around the North East including support slots at Middlesbrough Townhall & The Riverside in Newcastle. They released a total of three singles and a debut EP, achieving support slots with The Bluetones & Shaun Ryder, playing in front of Alan McGee multiple times and a track feature on ITV – This Morning (Out to Get Me). Velvet disbanded in 2020 and Jack decided to follow his dream of becoming a solo artist in his own right.
In February this year Jack released his debut single ‘Broken Youth‘, which instantly caught the attention and support from the likes of BBC Introducing, the song has already amassed close to 25,000 streams on Spotify alone. Following up on this, Jack’s second single explored the emotions of leaving home comforts and delving into a new life, ‘City Road’ follows Jack’s journey to Melbourne Australia where he first picked up an instrument.
Speaking more on ‘In A Different Light’ Jack explains:
“This is a special song to me, being the first song I ever wrote for this solo project. Lyrically overall the song is about learning to deal better with conflict, maturing & learning emotionally with age through hard times. ‘I never see you in a different light’ symbolises seeing someone differently to how you saw them previously despite not agreeing with their side of the story. I’m so proud of this song, I’ve been holding it back for some time now. I was going through a tough time; all my emotions fell out onto the page when writing it.”
The track was recorded with John Martindale at Blank Studios, Newcastle (The Pale White, Maximo Park etc) back in December 2020. Jack’s ex Velvet band mates Liam Cooke (guitars) and Josh West (bass / drums) also feature on the track.
