In this Preshow Rituals segment, the soul artist, Samuel Jack, shares what he does before every show. You can check out his rituals, after the break.

Pre-show rituals are a little weird when you think about it, but I’ve certainly got mine down to a fine art :) You’re not aware that they’re rituals at first, especially when you’re at the start of your touring career – they develop over time though and now I’m SUPER anal about them.

Firstly, I have a ‘gig bag’. It HAS to be packed by myself. In it there is a particular towel I always use after the show, two massive bottles of water, vocal zone throat sweets, and (ironically) a pack of cigarettes (which I’m trying to quit) – so I guess my first ritual would be having my gig bag!

Second is my throat sweets, I take one twenty minutes before show time and never break that twenty-minute marker.

Next up is my warm-up; for this, I have a song, ‘Don’t need no doctor’ by Ray Charles. Every time. Without fail. Often can be a venue carpark or green room.

Lastly, and again, I’m not sure why, but I always, always say ‘see you on the other side’ to the band before I go on stage. It’s just become a ‘thing’.

And there you have, the Samuel Jack pre-show rituals, no smashing up of any dressing rooms or anything…. but don’t you dare try and stop them.

Keep up with the artist on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
