Sampha

Friday

 

As one of the UK’s most enigmatic artists, twenty-seven year old Sampha has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand-out releases. From homegrown contemporaries such as SBTRKT, FKA twigs and Jessie Ware, to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Solange, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and, most recently, on Solange’s A Seat At The Table album, Sampha has quietly become an influential and in-demand collaborator. Now, with the forthcoming release of his debut album Process, the time has come for the London musician to tell his own story.

Despite not being a concept album, Process is loosely rooted in the concept of spiritual discovery, or at least the search for understanding. It’s a measured documentation of Sampha’s own development across the last two years of his life, but also it’s a reflection on the science of making music and the way the feeling that comes from those artistic procedures is entwined with the experience of being.

For his long-term fans, the album has been a six year wait. But through that time, Sampha has built upon his impressive groundwork to create an incredibly pure, emotionally honest debut album. His uncompromising vision has resulted in a rare and tender snapshot of life.

Don’t miss Sampha at Lovebox.
