Sam Wickens releases second single ‘Ravens & Crows’ (April 26th) from his upcoming debut album.
Sam Wickens, from Bangor Co. Down, is a mesmerising solo performer, gifted with the talent to arouse the soul with haunting melodies laced with poignant lyrics sung with his trademark transparency of spirit.
Compared to Jeff Buckley, John Martin, Paolo Nutini, Lou Reed, Sam is a soulful writer and performer with a restless creativity, conveying a personal blend of Soul, Blues, Gospel, Folk and Indie. This young and gifted 20-something artist humbly plies his craft with a focused sincerity, and has created a style his own: consistently delivering on his reputation as a bewitching live performer.
In 2016, Sam performed at the prestigious Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, Nashville, Tennessee, where he sang to an entranced audience at the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville. Sam also performed at ‘The Factory’ in Franklin Tennessee. This event was filmed by Music City Roots and beamed live into 60 million homes across the U.S.
In 2017, Sam was taken under the wing of legendary American record producer Tony Visconti (producer of scores of albums by major artists including: David Bowie, T.Rex, Paul McCartney, Damon Albarn, Moody Blues, Marc Almond, Kaiser Chiefs, etc). Visconti’s mentorship led to Sam working closely with music icons including Stuart Copeland, Nitin Sawhney, and Imelda May, and performing live at Union Chapel London supported by legendary saxophonist Howey Casey and top afro-urban band the Compozers. Sam’s mentorship under Tony Visconti was featured on a SkyArts documentary ‘Tony Visconti’s Unsigned Heroes’.
They protect me, If my life becomes a tomb, they become the champions of that tomb.”
Raven & Crows by Sam Wickens will be released this Friday 26th April and will be taken from his up and coming debut album.
