SAMM HENSHAW'S REDEMPTION
20-year old London native - Samm Henshaw is turning heads with his stunning Southern-infused sound and passionately honest vocal performances. The gorgeous combination of blues, soul, and gospel flows beautifully with the current resurgence of blues and soul that is gaining attention in the industry right now. It also doesn’t hurt to have the help of Gary Clark Jr. and Benjamin Booker.
His latest single, “Redemption”, is a moving gospel-influenced song. The song sees Henshaw baring himself in a powerfully raw and restrained vocal performance, stunningly set over stripped-down harmonica and guitar. There is weighty and solemn tone, but the gospel undercurrent simultaneously evokes a more hopeful sense of spiritual uplifting. The powerfully dynamic track serves as a commanding example of what the new blues movement has to offer, and an exceptionally promising preview of Henshaw’s capabilities as a soul artist.
“Redemption” will be part of his debut EP, The Sound Experiment, due out on July 13th of this year. Also from the EP is previously-released “Only Wanna Be With You”...
...and “Best Song Ever”, which can all be found on his SoundCloud. Listen to “Redemption” below:
