Alternatively you can stream the audio for the single on Sam’s Soundcloud page.
Manta Ray is taken from Sam’s debut EP Peace of Mind, which draws influences from folk to blues and soul with Sam blending these genres into his own unique, fresh style. Each track on the EP is a testament to Sam’s skilled songwriting and distinctive voice that emanates range and warmth; his baritone vocal takes centre stage throughout, filled with a fantastic grit and vibrato akin to the likes of George Ezra and Paolo Nutini.
Having moved to London at the age of 18, Sam began to explore the live circuit before eventually craving a change and moving to Melbourne. Here, he was able to develop his sound in a new environment, one filled with sunshine and good vibes.
Now based in Bristol, Sam continues to hone his individual blend of alternative indie-folk and impressing the likes of BBC 6Music, Songwriting Magazine and Fred Perry Subculture to name but a few. He is also no stranger to the festival circuit, having performed at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Y Not Festival, BBC 6Music Festival, 2000Trees and Dot to Dot.
You can pre-order Sam’s debut EP Peace of Mind out on 25th November 2016 via Prospect 21 on iTunes now.
