DHP Family Presents:

Sam Brookes

Live at The Borderline, Soho


Sam returns from work on his third studio album for a set of full band shows around the UK.

Named by The Independent as one of the best albums of 2014 and as a contender for the Mercury Prize, Sam’s second album, Kairos, established him as a staple of the UK live scene.  A creeping, underground success, Kairos, has since racked up over 10 million Spotify streams.  Also, in demand as a vocalist, Sam has lent his crystalline voice to artists as diverse as Basement Jaxx and Lucy Rose.

Now, Sam returns to give some of his new material its first full-band outing.  After a period of personal loss and upheaval, Sam reaches for new emotional and musical depth in his songwriting, drawing on his observations of himself and the world around him. I deal a lot with vulnerability and empathy.  I can’t help but put myself in other peoples shoes, like a kind of empathetic impulse.  Wherever I see unfairness and suffering, I need to understand the perspectives of everyone involved, to get to the essence of those experiences and to come to terms with them myself.

With his next album on the horizon, these shows could be a final intimate glimpse of Sam’s rare and currently under-the-radar talent.
