Preview: Maverick Sabre’s “When I Wake Up Tour”
By Maurice Harnsberry
I made my way to the Windy City to check out Maverick Sabre when he performs tonight at Schubas Tavern. Afterwards, the English-Irish singer, songwriter, and rapper will make his way across the country for shows on Jan. 21 in San Francisco and Jan. 23 in L.A.
“Why did I head all the way to Chicago to check out this show,” you ask? Well, let me explain.
With the release of his project When I Wake Up I immediately became a fan of his pure, powerful sound that’s full of emotion. Sabre is an expert storyteller with an amazing range (doesn’t sound like what’s on radio these days) who emerged from from the same scene as Jorja Smith… he was one of the first to put the talented British singer on stage with him.
Live, Sabre colors his moving compositions with cinematic visuals. I highly recommend Nada’s California readers check out the shows this week. Get info/tickets here.
