Who You Need: Maverick Sabre

WHO: Maverick Sabre

WHERE: London

GENRE: Alternative/R&B

TOP SONGS: “I Need” and “Come Fly Away”

Sabre’s attention to melodies is quite alluring. His voice embodies a male version of Amy Winehouse with added R&B growls. The 2015 album, Innerstanding, feels retro and vintage in a subtle way. Think Sam Smith but less sad and dainty.

His latest single, “Drifting” immediately caught my attention. A thudding opening beat charges through this song, making it a guaranteed head bopper. “Drifting” feels like somewhat of an exploration. An indie sensationalized story; “In the city, in the dark, in the park, in the fear, and I’m wishing for another, But there something in sky, feel the sun, can you see it?” His voice peaks up and dips low throughout every verse showing his true artistry (and falsetto).
