What have John Newman, Sam Smith, Ella Eyre and Jess Glynne all got in common? They’ve all featured on big dance tracks and then crossed over to have success of their own. It’s looking likely that Zak Abel will be the next name on that list, he’s been bubbling under for a while now, but it looks like 2017 is the year the singer makes waves.
You’ll most likely have first heard him on Gorgon City’s top 20 single ‘Unmissable’. Released in 2014, the song lit up dance floors across the globe giving Zak his first taste of chart success.
Zak signed his first record deal at the age of 17. Now at the tender age of 20, he is certainly one of the brightest young talents that the UK has to offer. With his distinct soulful voice, you could certainly be forgiven for thinking that he is double his age.
Things could’ve gone very differently for Zak, as he demonstrates in the video for the ultra-catchy single “Everybody Needs Love”, he’s a more than competent ping-pong player. Fortunately for your ears, he decided to go down the pop-star route, nice one Zak!
Now, just don’t keep us waiting too long on an album Zak.
