Maverick Sabre March Tour Posted on February 29, 2012 by The Music Team Having graced the UK with his musical presence, singer songwriter Maverick Sabre is the current name being echoed throughout the world of music. Pioneering an eclectic sound of reggae chords, soulful synths and hip-hop beats, the London-born, Irish-raised musician is attracting major attention. His first single, ‘Let Me Go’ made its way onto the UK charts in the summer of 2011 and showed everyone that this national treasure is a force to be reckoned with. Now Maverick begins his tour for his debut album release Lonely Are the Brave laying the foundation for what is sure to be a prosperous future. Maverick began his career a few years ago when he released his first mixtape ‘The Travelling Man’, which includes the massive hit ‘Sometimes’ featuring Wretch 32. The tracks take listeners through feel-good vibes and nostalgic moments, supported by the social-political content of Maverick’s lyrics. It was not long until Maverick’s raspy-jazz sound gained the recognition of UK chart-toppers Plan B and Professor Green. He has since collaborated with Green on the track ‘Jungle’ which takes drum & bass influence – again highlighting Sabre’s diverse sound. However, such recognition does not come without hard work and perseverance and Sabre’s work ethic has fallen nothing short of impressive. Working alongside some of the UK’s hottest producers such as Chase & Status, it is only fitting that praise should be given where praise is due. Such critical acclaim has come from radio stations and other media outlets such as the Independent dubbing him the ‘male Amy Winehouse.’ It is evident that a great stir is being caused in the UK music scene and with his last EP earning a more than respectable number 2 spot on the iTunes chart, we can expect great things from the new phenomenon that is, Maverick Sabre. His tour dates are as follows: 1st March – 02 ABC, Glasgow 2nd March – Leeds, Met Uni 3rd March – Manchester, 02 Academy 2 5th March – Cardiff Uni, Solus 6th March – Birmingham, HMV Institute. 8th March – Bristol, Anson Rooms 9th March – Portsmouth Pyramids 10th March – London Roundhouse MAVERICK SABRE WEBSITE MAVERICK SABRE TWITTER MAVERICK SABRE FACEBOOK Keep an eye on the Pure FM website for a review on Maverick Sabre’s Portsmouth show and an exclusive interview.
