New music to take notice of,
This review is from: First Takes (Audio CD)
This EP is a selection of Sam's work to date, in preparation of his debut album due out later this year.
The songs are a range of rock/pop, electro acoustic and straight acoustic guitar work which demonstrate his range of musical influences and also the years that these songs have been written.
Best Friend, Moon and Blue Rose have been included in recent live sets that he has played recently and are probably more of an indication of what we can expect on the upcoming album, Best Friend is a good pop song, Moon has a style that reminds me of some Crowded House tunes and Blue Rose is a haunting ballad.
The other tracks are all of equally good quality including one of his earliest songs, Charlotte.
It's hard to define Sam's songs as they cover a range of musical styles, and maybe that's one of the strongest points of this EP, it is varied and vibrant and well worth an investment in.
