Sampha Essentials

Sampha Essentials

With a voice like spun gold, an ear for heartrending melodies, and a gift for future-facing beats, Sampha is a UK singer/songwriter/producer whose reach extends from underground electronic circles to R&B's vanguard. His unmistakable tone and texture made him a go-to guest singer upon his arrival in the early ‘10s: On “Don't Touch My Hair,” his background harmonies glow like embers inside Solange's neo-soul kindling; on Drake's oceanic “4422,” he shines like the setting sun. “Without” shows off his slinky approach to drums and synths, while “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano” is a showcase for his talent at its purest—just voice, keys, and tears.
