Everything You Are

Description

Encompassing influences from folk music to country and acoustic soul, Everything You Are was written on the road - airport lounges, hotel lobbies, tour buses, dressing rooms, you name it - while Sam was touring the US in his day job as guitarist in KT Tunstalls band. Thousands of miles away from home, dealing with the slow disintegration of a long-term relationship, and digesting a musical diet of classic American artists, from Hank Williams and Robert Johnson through to Neil Young and Tom Waits, the feel of classic Americana courses through this stripped back, heartfelt album. The modern blues of Ups And Downs (a style recently bought to the fore by the likes of Seasick Steve) sits alongside the love-lorn, country tinged Americana of Another Lifetime (featuring the vocals of KT Tunstall) on an always direct and often heart-breakingly emotive and soul-bearing album. Upon returning from 4 years spent largely on the road with KT, Sam has spent the last few months putting together a live band that could do justice to his solo material. Sams intimate live shows resonate with the experience gained through years touring, not only with KT but also with the likes King Creosote, Tom Baxter and Scottish folk legend Burt Jansch, lending a rare maturity to a debut album. Tracks: Ups And Downs / Another Lifetime / Cursed Love / Looks Like We Lost This Time / Hard To Find / The Limes Avenue / Everything Easy / Pictures In My Mind / At The Gate / I Just Can't Get By / Leonard / Brother "Catchy and melodic songs with lyrics written from the heart by a new song-writing prodigy." - The Times
