Sam’s eponymously titled debut album features eight stream of consciousness gems that Sam has honed to a fine point, beautifully realized by producers Chris Hughes (Tears For Fears, Robert Plant) and Mark Frith (Tom McRae, Stereo MCs).
The songs are about growing up, drinking, women, friendship, drugs, fathers & sons, travelling, fear, joy, love and …a butterfly.
