A little while back we stumbled upon an incredibly moving unplugged performance from UK Soul singer Samm Henshaw, that we patiently awaited the next time we would hear new music from him, or another live performance. The singer started getting some media buzz after he released an amazing cover of One Direction’s hit song, “Best Song Ever“, in 2014. Performing his first track of 2015, “Only Wanna Be With You” for the “Mahogany Sessions”; a popular YouTube channel that features live, acoustic performances from a diverse pool of alternative, pop, and soul musicians, the singer’s raw talent and dynamic vocal style leapt off of the screen and blew us away. The track, released earlier this year, is already gaining pace and quickly proving that Henshaw is a force to be reckoned with.
The 21-year-old London native cites his musical influences to be Paolo Nutini, Hoizer and Lauryn Hill, among others. Set to release his debut EP The Sound Experiment (later this summer) the UK Soul pioneer has recently put out a new song “Redemption”, and has returned to The “Mahogany Sessions” to give another showstopping performance. Get familiar with Samm Henshaw and his contagious soulful sounds, as we are sure the rising star will continue to impress and blow audiences away.
