With a voice described as soulful and sensual, it’s easy to see Jack Cryer joining the female singer-songwriters filling the charts at the moment.  And an album, scheduled for release this summer, should see her do just that.

Meanwhile, two intimate gigs in March will give Sussex audiences a chance to catch her before she moves on to bigger venues. 

The first is a rare Saturday night outing for Richard Durrant’s popular Airport Club. It takes place at Shoreham Airport on Saturday 6th March, and doors open at 7pm.  A previous Airport Club appearance by Jack saw her dad, comic Barry Cryer, in the audience.

The following night, Sunday 7th March, Jack will make an appearance at Brighton’s Joogleberry Playhouse. Doors open at 8pm.  Admission to both performances is just £6.
