Fresh from a sold out UK tour, rapidly rising Brighton singer / songwriter Sam Tompkins has unleashed his brand new single 'Bloodline', taken from his forthcoming EP 'who do you pray to?' out February 4th 2022 via Island Records.
The track is another heartfelt smash which is universally relatable and sure to connect with his ever-growing fanbase. Sam tells a story in each track he releases, and he does it well - his skill for writing lyrics is to die for and everything we love when it comes to discovering new talent. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, he sings through a gorgeous instrumental of gentle acoustics and steady drum beats, warming the hearts of everyone who listens. Pure emotion and passion is put into every word as he uses his powerful vocal as the most effective tool for delivering his raw and intimate lyricism, letting a warm and inviting soundscape develop around him.
Explaining the story behind the 'Bloodline' lyrics, Sam says,
“Bloodline is a reminder that no matter how far our loved ones go, they are always still with us wherever we go.”
Sam's super engaged fanbase has grown exponentially following a series of viral videos, impressive covers shared via TikTok & Instagram, single releases (accumulating millions of streams) and pre-pandemic, grass-roots touring. Resonating with Sam’s emotional lyrics and raw vocals he has built a deeply supportive global community with close to half a million followers on both platforms.
Justin Bieber is a huge fan of Sam's, and they've developed a friendship over the past year. His music has already been praised by Bastille, Elton John, Bebe Rexa, Jason Derulo and MNEK, alongside the likes of MTV, Clash and Spotify.
Following in the footsteps of British break-out stars like Sam Fender and Tom Grennan, 2022 is set to be his year. This incredibly talented artist has gone from busking on the streets to selling-out tours and with the release of his new EP who do you pray to? Sam will set out his vision for the future.
