Maverick Sabre Talks Tupac Shakur, Bob Dylan And His New Album
Maverick Sabre recently spoke about his debut album, 'The Lonely Are The Brave', and some of the influences behind it. The star told What’s On: "It's funny because soul wasn't what I listened to at first, but your tastes change as you get older. When I was young it was mostly my dad's traditional Irish music and grunge that I listened to. Then when I was 13, someone played me Tupac Shakur, middle of nowhere in Ireland, and my world changed..."
He continued: "I listened to a lot of Bob Dylan so I wanted my songs to tackle subjects like he did. I don't want the songs to sound like I'm preaching; it's just me talking from my heart, exactly as if it would be if you came round to my place for a cup of tea. I'm a little bit nervous and I put a lot of pressure on myself, but I'm more excited than anything, because I want people to hear the songs. It's like the first day at school – some people will hate you, some will love you and some will just be indifferent."
Maverick Sabre's new album, 'The Lonely Are The Brave', is out now.
