Talented performer Jack Valero hits the road this November for select shows in London, Sheffield, Hull and Manchester. His new single 'Form Over Function' is released on the 8th of the month and these intimate performances are destined to be can't miss affairs.
'Form Over Function' also completes the video trilogy that Jack commenced with 'Hollow Warmth' and 'Heaven Help Me'. Speaking about the video, Jack says:
“The final video in the trilogy explores the juxtaposition between the person and the performer in all of us and revisits some favourite characters. The last two videos have given the feeling of peering into a character's most private moments, seeing their fears and anxieties. You can never know what bubbles away beneath the surface of someone and so here we blur the line between the character and showing my own vulnerabilities. I've talked about mental health before, but never gone too much into my own struggle with it. This video is the first time I tap into that without the safety net of a character to hide behind."
‘Form Over Function’ is Jack’s second video to be directed by Edoardo Cimatti after ‘Hollow Warmth’. The former frontman of The RPM's has a clear vision for his output as a solo artist and quite frankly, is a special talent. With influences ranging from Sam Fender to DMA's, it is likely that in the not too distant future that new acts will be listing Jack Valero as their inspiration.
