In the eyes of some, taking a two-three sabbatical from any job can leave you sluggish and off point. Taking a two-three sabbatical after selling 250,000 copies of your debut album in such a ruthless and forgetting music climate is almost suicide to some.
However, that is what Michael Stafford, aka, Maverick Sabre chose to do, and after his successful first album 'Lonely Are The Brave', he is back with 13 new tracks to remind his fans and the rest of the industry he still exists with 'Innerstanding'.
It was 2011 when Maverick Sabre released his first official single, followed soon by the rest of his debut album in 2012. It was an entertaining and easily listenable album with many great tunes to nod you head and sing to yourself in the shower.
The young-London-born singer-songwriter used his love of hip hop, soul and RnB to fuse together music that combined all of those elements. It included tracks like 'I Need', 'These Days' and 'Shooting Stars', with the latter showing the artists fantastic potential.
Though all that seems like a life time ago, a time where Ed Sheeran was popping up on peoples radars singing A Team in the smallest of venues.

Meeting Maverick Sabre for the third time in 6 months, I kind of knew what to expect from the London-Irish musician. Even though I was stuck in an elevator for a few minutes before the interview, I still felt relaxed.
Maverick Sabre's career has blossomed - in the last few months especially - and although that was one thing I wanted to delve into, I was still surprised about how laid back he was. Going off point and talking for what felt like hours, the interview took a far more conversational tone than planned, even resulting in the tables turning and Mr Sabre questioning me, the interviewer. Nonetheless, the addiction of music is always welcoming.
