Sam Bishop plus support

Sam Bishop is a singer/songwriter, whose original material combines glossy '80s synth
textures and arena-friendly choruses into dramatic yet honest songs such as his recent
single "Playing in the Shadows," which garnered over 60,000 streams on Spotify in the
first fortnight. "Sam’s defining style speaks volumes to younger generations, by
carving a distinctive sound with every new track" said Devizine.

Sam has been writing music since the age of 17, but only when he performed at a school
concert did he have the courage to start recording and releasing music. He has
since been featured on BBC Wiltshire and Fantasy Radio as well
as on multiple Spotify curated playlists, and has played on multiple stages and
festivals up and down the UK, including the O2 Academy in Bournemouth, The Fleece in
Bristol, and Hat Fair in Winchester.

His second EP ‘Lost Promises’ was inspired by the pandemic and the struggle of being
separate from loved ones. It draws inspiration from alternative bands such as Walking
on Cars and Bastille. Although defining his genre as alternative, Sam’s works often lend
itself to 90’s electro-pop: with memorable synth hooks, and clever vocal melodies which
are supported by his rich, recognisable falsetto. His songs are intended for full band,
crowd-pleasing environments, and if you come to a live show, you won’t leave without
at least one song being stuck in your head. The band consists of lead guitarist Toby
Creasey, bassist Ellie Pearson and drummer Darshan ‘Durry’ Darkadas, whilst fronting
the band with vocals and keys is Sam. His sets include primarily original work, along
with the occasional cover of indie artists like Sam Fender, Alec Benjamin or Foals.

Sam will be supported by Ben Sellers and Warmpth

Hampshire-based Ben Sellers has had a very busy last 12 months writing and recording material
ready for his debut album, whilst crafting and refining his unique live sound. Influenced by the likes
of Ben Howard, Sam Fender, John Mayer and Thom Yorke to name a few, 2022 and beyond now
promises to be an important and key period for Ben, which will see him return to live performance
for a string of shows.

Ben is vigorous, vibrant and dominating, delivering compelling performances - it’s a sound that
needs to be heard and should not be missed!
