Maverick Sabre, the biggest male breakthrough artist of 2012, returns on July 6th with ‘Emotion’, a blistering new single on Virgin EMI.
A modern day fusion of pounding Boom Bap beats and soulful vocals, it’s the first single from Maverick Sabre’s eagerly anticipated forthcoming album, the follow-up to his 250,000 selling debut Lonely Are the Brave. Written by Maverick Sabre and produced by Jamaica’s hottest up and coming producer, Stephen McGregor, son of reggae legend Freddy McGregor, ‘Emotion’ was recorded in Jamaica.
In the last 18 months this 23 year old with a voice like no other has been on quite a journey. He’s been writing, recording, and travelling, constantly honing his craft along the way, from Bed Stuy in Brooklyn to Tuff Gong studios in Jamaica. He sang with an 80 piece orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, worked alongside Idris Elba in South Africa, and performed at Damon Albarn’s legendary Africa Express show in France.
