Sampha released his highly-anticipated debut album, ‘Process’, on 3rd February 2017 via Young Turks, featuring the singles ‘Timmy’s Prayer’ and ‘Blood On Me’.
Since the release of his debut ‘Sundanza’ EP in 2010 and 2013’s ‘Dual’ EP, Sampha has quietly but assuredly become one of the UK’s most enigmatic and respected artists. Still just twenty seven years old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and, most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums. Now it’s time for Sampha to tell his own story and Process, produced by Sampha himself and Rodaidh McDonald, is set to be his defining musical statement.
2016 has seen Sampha become one of the most in-demand new live acts around, with two London shows at Corsica Studios and The Electric Brixton selling out in a matter of minutes. In fact, every one of Sampha’s UK and North American tour dates this year have sold out. The 2017 dates will feature Sampha’s biggest headline shows to date, including London’s 2,000 capacity Roundhouse and New York’s 3,000 capacity Terminal 5, plus debut shows at Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Croxton Bandroom, Brisbane’s Triffid and Auckland’s Studio.
