Zak Abel Says We 'Deserve To Be Loved'
There are very good reasons why 20-year-old U.K. star-on-the-rise Zak Abel has already built a resume that includes sharing the stage with U.K. phenom Kwabs, collaborating with the likes of Kaytranada, Gorgon City and Joker, and premiering a video with Apple Music. Blessed with a preternaturally insightful and maturely emotive lyricism and the ear for crafting eclectically engaging, electro-r'n'b soundscapes, at the core of Abel's outstanding talent is a truly arresting voice. A perfect combination of tender vulnerabilities and soulful grit, Abel's raw, passionate delivery can draw the listener in with a heartfelt confession just as easily as it can stir the soul with a powerful exclamation. Following up his recent 'One Hand On The Future' EP, and ahead of his sold out show at London's Notting Hill Arts Club, here Abel showcases the effortless, intoxicating appeal of his wonderful voice with the heartfelt honesty and plaintive intimacy of 'Deserve To Be Loved'.
