Sam Brothers Lights Up The London FM Digital Playlist with ‘Through The Dark’ – A British Folk Powerplay!

We are pleased to announce that the new single ‘Through The Dark’ from ‘Sam Brothers’ is now on our Daily A-List Playlist. Listen out for it night and day on the playlist + it will also be played daily as a special BRITISH FOLK POWERPLAY at 7:15 PM GMT time every night for the next month.

New Sam Brothers EP is a love letter to The British Folk Scene. The Kent (UK) based troubadour goes all in on folk in his most recent collection of recordings, aptly named “The Folksinger”. Due for release on Friday 5th April 2024.

After many years of travelling the country and further afield, supporting the likes of Nick Lowe, Sarah Jarosz, Speirs & Bowden and in a variety of live settings, Canterbury (UK) dweller Sam Brothers has announced the release of a new EP which will be available on all streaming platforms from Friday 5th April 2024.

Due to the fact that Sam makes his living from performing, whether it be on larger stages as far away as South Korea or closer to home in the darkest depths of Kentish alehouses, it made sense that this new collection of mostly original music should be a reflection of his live performances. It was recorded by Producer/Engineer Neil Sullivan (Chris Difford, Gorrilaz, Damo Suzuki) without a great deal of overdubs or audio processing.

The collection has a strong 1960’s Greenwich Village vibe, the arrangements nod towards Irish Folk music with Bodhran courtesy of Stewart Hughes and following in the folk tradition, this collection of six songs is thematically varied. You can expect songs dealing with war in the middle east, materialism and love, not a million miles away from some of the work of folk luminaries such as Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger.

The new 6 track collection titled “The Folksinger” is in Sam’s own words “….An honest representation of where I’m at musically and is at its heart, a love letter to a kind of music that has guided me along the road”.

A track from the EP entitled “Through The Dark” will be released on streaming platforms Friday 15th March and there will be a launch show at St. Mary’s Art Centre, Sandwich on Friday 5th April featuring original Rolling Stone/Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor with whom Sam has worked with extensively over the years. Sam will go on to spread the word about the EP around the UK and Germany throughout April and May.
