New: Sampha – Happens

Sampha

There’s a very thin line you tread when you sing with such emotion, it can sound strained and out of control and many singers often do during acoustic performances, but Sampha sits perfectly comfortably on that line. His tone is so rich and beautiful that you can forget to pay any attention to what he’s actually saying, but when you do, you’ll find lyrical content that’s intimate, vulnerable and exquisitely arranged. Sampha’s brand of soul also manages to sound so fresh because of this very original arrangement. If you played this to a D’angelo or Dwele back in the 90’s and told them that this is what soul music is gonna sound like in 2014, I’d like to think they’d be very happy about that.
