Jack in Water
Jack in Water is the artist name of the idiosyncratic singer-songwriter talent William Clapson. Currently splitting his time between London and Palma de Mallorca, Clapson was brought up in a little village in Essex, listening to the diverse musical influences of his parents, ranging from the melancholy and drama created by bands such as Radiohead and The Blue Nile, to the powerful R&B and soul voices like Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross. It was this mix of art-rock melancholy instrumentation partnered with the emotional soulful voices of the greats that really drove him to make the music he makes today. Clapson uses music as a way of communicating emotions and ideas with himself and the world around him. He writes to connect and reconnect with himself, those close to him and those whom he may never meet, but are connected by the pain and joy of what it means to be alive and be a human being.
