KNOWN FOR HIS FEATURED VOCALS ON MANY OTHER ARTIST'S TRACKS, SAMPHA SISAY IS READY TO EMERGE
You may not have heard of Sampha Sisay, but you've likely heard his voice. Featured as a vocalist on tracks by SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, and Drake, the South London songwriter and producer has humbly waited to become, in his words, "more comfortable with the idea of showing the world what I do by myself."
What he does is blessedly stunning. His voice feels instantly unique and dichotomous—it's simultaneously gentle and powerful, subtle and impactful, quiet and emotionally loud. It's also no frills and feels quite honest—a trait that is overblown and brazenly claimed and/or attempted by many artists but in fact is only applicable to a small few. Not since the emergence of Frank Ocean have our ears perked up to a new voice such as this. (Check out his previous track "Indecision" here.) His debut EP Dual is out July 29 on Young Turks and like a growing crowd of listeners, we can't wait to hear it. Listen to his new song "Without" above.
