Sam Stephenson is a Sydney, Australia native formerly of pop group Fisher King. With a gritty yet soothing vocal sound all his own and guitar stylings complements of James Taylor, he forms striking and relevant singer-songwriter tunes. His plucky, bright strumming is pitted against darker subject matter with country undertones.
First single “Love is Gone” is a soulful track whose title hints at failure, but with a snarky good riddance. Strumming that mimics the cadence of a horse and passive whistling make this dusty debut a full on success. “This collection of songs is my emancipation,” says Samuel. “It’s very free and I think that makes it fun to sing and to play – and to listen, too, hopefully.”
