Astral People proudly present the Australia and New Zealand debut of UK electro soul phenomenon Sampha in May 2017. He will be bringing a new live show down under for a limited run of shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, including what’s anticipated to be a magical performance at the Sydney Opera House.
Sampha is set to release his highly-anticipated debut album, ‘Process’, on 3rd February 2017 via Young Turks and will feature the singles ‘Timmy’s Prayer’ and ‘Blood On Me’. Since the release of his debut ‘Sundanza’ EP in 2010 and 2013’s ‘Dual’ EP, Sampha has quietly but assuredly become one of the UK’s most enigmatic and respected artists. Still just twenty seven years old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and, most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums.
2016 has seen Sampha become one of the most in-demand new live acts around, with two London shows at Corsica Studios and The Electric Brixton selling out in a matter of minutes. In fact, every one of Sampha’s UK and North American tour dates this year have sold out.
Now it’s time for Sampha to tell his own story with ‘Process’ and the following world tour set to be his defining musical statement. Be sure to witness history in the making this May.
