About Sampha

After years of high-profile collaborations, London-born pianist, producer, and rueful crooner Sampha made his grand entrance with his Mercury Prize–winning 2017 album Process. • Inspired by his older brother, who built a studio in their childhood home, Sampha forayed into music production in his early teens. • Through MySpace, Sampha connected with London artist Kwes, who helped him secure an internship in 2009 with his current label Young Turks. • That year, Sampha issued his breakthrough single, a remix of The xx’s “Basic Space.” His debut EP, Sundanza, arrived in 2010. • Between 2010 and 2014, Sampha contributed to Drake’s Grammy-nominated 2013 album Nothing Was the Same and Beyoncé’s triple-Grammy-winning 2013 eponymous LP. He also joined early sessions for Solange’s 2016 album A Seat at the Table and worked on the song “Saint Pablo,” off Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo. • Sampha issued his debut album, Process, in 2017. Led by the heartfelt ode to his late mother, “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano,” Process hit No. 7 on the UK albums chart and won the 2017 Mercury Prize.
