Described by Acoustic Magazine as “Always Compelling...”, Sam Brothers is
a young Margate, UK based Folksinger and Songwriter whose performances
bring to mind the Soho and Greenwich Village Folk Scenes of the 1960's. His bluesy guitar, stompbox and harmonica filled performances are deeply
rooted in the music of greats such as Pete Seeger, Sonny Terry & Brownie
Mcghee, Bert Jansch, Bob Dylan and Fairport Convention.

A genuine travelling troubadour from a very young age, Sam was busking in
Brighton when he was discovered by producer Mark st. John (Bob Marley,
Flora Purim, Eddy Grant) in 2017. This led to the production and release
Sam's Debut album “Farewell To My Old Days”, (Recorded the old fashioned
way - live onto tape), which received significant attention from National and
local radio, as well as the Music press. Distributed by Proper Records and
appearing in Record stores across the UK, the first pressing sold out within a

Following the success of the album, Sam went on to perform all across
Europe and the UK proving support for acts as diverse as Nick Lowe, Rab
Noakes, Chris Difford, Sarah Jarosz, Spiers and Boden, Hank Wangford, and
The Christians, sweating his craft at funky, authentic venues such as like the
Eel Pie Club, The Gulbenkian Theatre and London's Iconic Troubadour, as
well as playing festival stages at The Isle of Wight Festival, Lunar, Sandwich
Folk & Ale, Blissfields and Smallworld.

Sam went on to take up the unmissable opportunity in 2019 to be part of
creating a stripped back acoustic album “Bare as Bone. Bright As Blood” with
cult rock group 'The Pretty Things' , alongside founding members Dick Taylor
and Phil May. Plans were underway for a world tour of the album, until they
were stopped in their tracks by the double bombshell of the Covid Pandemic
and the sad passing of Phil May in May, 2020.

After getting back out on the road with an arsenal of new material, Sam has recorded a new EP entitled "The Folksinger" due to be released on April 5th 2024. Sam will be promoting the EP with a tour of the UK and Germany in the months following the release.
