Laspikedelycmusic – September 2011
Sam Brookes soon to be released debut album has been greatly anticipated by fans of London based Brookes. The folk singer songwriter and acoustic guitarist has been recognised by music producers since his original band The Volt, won MTV’s ‘Get Seen Get Heard’ talent contest. When I first watch Sam play live, he played harmonica along side a guitarist, and to be honest with you I wasn’t sure what to expect. As he began to sing however, I was drawn into his music and couldn’t help but smile. His style is reminisent of female singer songwriter Laura Marling who is also a great inspiration to Sam, along side others such as Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and John Martin. The musician’s songs tell stories in an uplifting, but serious way and his vocal capabilities only draw the listener in more. While his own music is written very personally, this is only until the point where he is performing. This allows him to bring the audience into his mind and into his music.
