Anticipation is building in the Royal Theatre Castlebar as the date gets closer for the London born and Irish raised Maverick Sabre date at The Royal Theatre in Castlebar on Bank Holiday Sunday, June 3.
This British/Irish vocalist, born in Hackeny, London, but who moved to New Ross, Co Wexford, during his childhood, is associated with genres such as R&B, soul, post-dubstep, reggae fusion, and hip hop. Sabre’s gritty yet soulful voice is drawing audiences in and leaving them hooked. From Hackney to Wexford and back again, he has silenced crowds with his catchy lamenting social-political content.
He is well known for his eerie vocals and guitar playing, and at just 21 years of age, this young rising star is generating a huge buzz and has been tipped by Hot Press as the Irish newcomer who will give the established artists serious competition.
His recent single ‘Let Me Go’ was a massive radio hit in Ireland as well as being playlisted on Radio 1, Kiss FM, and Capital in the UK. The music video for the single hit well over one million views in under three weeks and left people impatiently waiting for the debut album, Lonely Are The Brave, which was released on February 6.
As well as writing material with the hottest producers and laying strong foundations for what is sure to be a hugely successful future, Maverick Sabre has been featured on Later With Jools Holland, live on BBC2 from Glastonbury Festival, collaborated with Professor Green on the club smash ‘Jungle’ (NME Award for Best Dancefloor Filler ) and with Chase and Status on ‘Fire In Your Eyes Again’. It was no surprise that Sabre’s debut EP reached number two in the iTunes charts and has set high expectations for his album.
Rapidly rising from strength to strength, Maverick has been busy touring alongside chart toppers Plan B, Cee Lo Green, Snoop Dogg and The Script, as well as collaborators Chase and Status. Tickets costing €23 are on sale and are available from the Royal Box Office on 0818 300 000 or 094 9023111, or online from www.RoyalTheatre.ie
