Jacko Hooper sings “Muttered Words”
British singer/songwriter Jacko Hooper made his debut in 2014 With the song “For You” and has offered the odd song ever since. But 2020 has been quite prolific for this outstanding artist as he releases his fifth and final song of this year, “Muttered Words”, today. A gorgeous acoustic number for those cold winter days, “Muttered Words” is a perfect end for a year that has seen Jacko’s songs aired on BBC Introducing and tour with the likes of James Blunt and Freya Ridings.
“Muttered Words” follows on from “How Lucky We Are” from the Brighton based artist, who combines mesmerising soulful vocals, beautiful acoustic guitar and achingly honest words by seeking influence from the things around him that mean the most. Originally writing in the comfort of his bedroom with just the four walls around him to judge, he first began to venture out after a fortuitous video was filmed by a close friend and uploaded onto YouTube.
Demand for these let him to head out and start playing shows around the UK to his ever growing, painfully committed and loyal following. Jacko quickly caught the eye of French videographer Rod Maurice of Le Hiboo who invited him to Paris to headline the Café De Lanse with Flo Morrissey in support, quickly followed by a short European tour. When he’s not singing, Jacko also runs Brighton’s premiere folk promotions company and boutique record label, Folklore Sessions which has hosted over 200 acts at their monthly showcases since 2014 as well as hundreds of other shows across the south of England!
