The two headline shows in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro will feature Brazilian singer Rogê as a special guest opening act. He and Jack met backstage at Jack’s concert in Rio in 2017. “Rogê gave me a vinyl record and I brought it home. And when I finally put it on, I loved it so much,” recalls Jack. Jack loved Rogê’s voice and sound so much he invited Rogê to collaborate on a few remixes of songs from his 2017 album All The Light Above It Too. Due to the pandemic, the release of these songs was delayed but we are excited to share the new tracks the two worked on together with you now! “Sunsets For Somebody Else and Big Sur (Brasil Versions)” were produced by Mario Caldato, Jr incorporating elements from Jack’s 2017 album All The Light Above It Too and new instrumentals and vocals from Rogê.

Hailed a "modern Brazilian masterpiece" by influential UK DJ Gilles Peterson, Rogê delivers a stunning debut album on Diamond West Records. Produced by Tommy Brenneck with string arrangements by Arthur Verocai, Rogê masterfully moves from uplifting afro sambas to soulful tear drenched ballads. "In this album you can hear the history of brazlian music" Rogê explains. A master guitarist and songwriter, Curyman puts both of these skill sets on full display. Language barriers be damned! Treat yourself to some Brazilian soul.
