Jack Penate

South London's rubber legged troubadour

Already the snowball that is Jack’s career has rolled from tiny gigs around London, through support slots with friends Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, to an unprecedented mammoth UK tour, preaching his self-described indie-soul to the population, but the daily grind of being on the move is not about to bring him down. “One thing I’m really proud of is that we are really enthusiastic and never pessimistic,” he says of his band, which is completed by friends Joel and Alex on bass and drums respectively. “We are always excited about things. If it’s a Sunday night in Swindon we’ll somehow make a wicked night of it. We are never like, ‘Fuck this!’ We are always up for it. Every experience is great.”
