Maverick Sabre - SOLD OUT

English-Irish singer, songwriter, and rapper

Please note this show is SOLD OUT

Maverick Sabre is an Irish-English rapper, singer-songwriter and guitarist with a style that blends R&B, soul, folk and post-dubstep. Born Michael Stafford in Hackney, London, but raised in County Wexford, Ireland, Sabre made his name through collaborations with numerous artists in both the UK and Ireland before launching on to the national stage with his debut solo single “Look What I Done” in 2011.

Maverick first made his mark with an appearance on the 2008 album Sense The Terror, produced by Terawrizt and Nu-Centz. Positive reviews lead to numerous guest spots with established underground artists, and by 2010 he had worked with the likes of Chase and StatusProfessor Green and Jermicide & Danny Digg, while also releasing his first mix-tape, The Travelling Man. The Travelling Man featured the song “Sometimes,” which came with a music video included. This further raised his profile. His first official single “Look What I Done” was released in 2011 and he promoted the single with appearances on Later... with Jools Holland and on Chris Moyles' national radio show.

As he neared the completion of his first solo studio album, he released the single “Let Me Go,” which reached No. 16 on the UK singles chart. Maverick continued his move into the mainstream with the hotly anticipated release of his debut album, Lonely Are The Brave, in early 2012. The album reached No. 2 in the UK and Scottish album charts and No. 3 in Ireland. Two further singles were released from the album, including “I Need.”

Maverick Sabre has established himself as a serious solo artist to watch after years of success in collaborations with a who's who of the UK hip-hop, R&B and dub-step scenes. With his combination of folk guitars, pounding bass beats, haunting vocals and political rapping, Maverick takes inspiration from the likes of Bob Dylan, Tupac and Bob Marley. He is currently signed to Mercury Records and has recently supported artists such as Lloyd Banks, The Game and Lethal Bizzle. He is also a former flatmate of Plan B, a good friend who helped him get his start in London after hearing his early work. Maverick is a regular at the UK summer festivals, with appearances at 2013's V Festival, Radio 1's Big Weekend and Shakedown Festivalamong many others.
