With such a nomadic childhood it’s perhaps not surprising that Samuel, after leaving home at 16, currently lives, writes and records his unique style of contemporary soul in a caravan on the outskirts of a small village in Somerset.His authentic sound and intimate songwriting, which is often compared to the likes of Sam Smith, Hozier and Sam Cooke, has captivated audiences both at home and across the pond in America.
