Introducing…Jack in Water

Jack in Water is the artist name of the idiosyncratic singer-songwriter talent William Clapson. Currently splitting his time between London and Palma de Mallorca, Clapson was brought up in a little village in Essex, listening to the diverse musical influences of his parents, ranging from the melancholy and drama created by bands such as Radiohead and The Blue Nile, to the powerful R&B and soul voices like Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross.

Following a string of emotionally charged singles, rising star Jack In Water released his debut album, You Don’t Feel Like Home, which is not a record to rush.

4Ever Songs: Aretha Franklin ‘Think’

With its defiant lyrics and fervent vocals, this No. 1 R&B hit is a cousin of “Respect,” Franklin’s rallying cry for any woman who has felt mistreated. Franklin co-wrote “Think” — one of the only hits she penned herself — with then-husband Ted White. The song got a second life 12 years later when she recorded another version for “The Blues Brothers,” the Dan Ackroyd-John Belushi movie.
