One of the most interesting voices on the folk scene... He has a fine and powerful voice but with subtle delicacy too... I think this guy is absolutely brilliant. (Mike Harding)
Sam's debut EP Your Way Home was released in March 2013, swiftly creating a buzz of interest in the folk scene. He followed this with the release of the widely acclaimed Spokes EP in February 2015, which cemented Sam's place further as one of the most exciting young prospects in the folk scene, landing him a nomination in the Best Singer category at the 2015 Spiral Earth Awards, and grabbing the attention of BBC Radio 2's Folk Show. His debut album The Lost Boys came out in November 2015 and received rave reviews, cementing Sam’s place as one of the most rapidly rising stars of the UK folk scene. Touring as a trio with Jamie Francis (banjo) and Evan Carson (percussion), Sam has gained a reputation for an incredibly high class and dynamic live show, and the guys have become favourites at venues and festivals in all parts of the country.
