Can you imagine a soothing, soulful, and deep voice against a beat that is euphoric but with a sinful, and desirable appeal to it? If you can imagine it, it is definitely SAMPHA bringing this image to life.
Each word he sings brings a raw emotion that, music lovers can easily connect with.
Sampha Sisay was born in South London. His love for music rooted as a young boy, when his father would by a CD every week after work and each time he’d come home, there would be a new artists to listen, and learn from. The youngest of five brothers he’d sit in his small bedroom and produce beats instead of doing homework, it was a way to pass time, and a get away.
What was then seen as a hobby, or to pass time while he’d sit in his room after school: the gift to produce, and write music has given him the opportunity to collaborate with Drake, Solange, Jessie Ware, and SBTRKT which he has glittered his magic touch on each track.
In his recent EP’s Sundanza, and Dual each track gives us a unique and fresh edge, which keeps on the tip of our toes never to expect a blast of new color.
His fans wonder which route he’ll take in his next album/ EP. Hopefully he keeps to his roots, but will continue to go against the grid in a new innovative way.
