+ Biography

Sam Lee’s More For To Rise EP brims with colour, energy and sumptuous instrumental inter-play.Sam Lee & Friends have experienced an extraordinary eighteen months. Tours in Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, across Europe and the UK have exposed them to countless influences as they have crafted their new material.

Their unique sound has caught the imagination of artists from the world of music and beyond. Collaborations with Secret Cinema & Laura Marling; star turns at London Fashion Week followed by a Vogue feature; talks at 5 x 15; a regular Sam Lee show on Resonance FM and appearances in major TV productions including Peaky Blinders (BBC) have pushed Sam Lee & Friends into new and uncharted territories where they have flourished.

Still dedicated to the gypsy and traveller cultures of which he has become such a champion, Sam has established The Song Collectors Collective. The collective is driven by a passion for oral traditions that are often over-looked.

Winning fRoots Album of the Year as well as nominations for The Mercury Prize and three BBC Folk Awards – rare triumphs for a debut album - Sam Lee & Friends have taken the crisp beauty of Ground Of Its Own and developed it with a new urgency, with rich tones and textures.
