After working with SBTRKT, Jessie Ware and Drake, it seems Sampha is ready to step into his own spotlight. Yesterday, the people at Yours Truly were treated to an intimate Q&A with Sampha, plus a live rendition of Indecision.
Sampha performs the track on the piano, sparse and syrupy, with almost no difference between his studio and live voice. Sampha also discussed what sparks his creativity, making music to avoid doing homework, and the stories behind his tracks. Sampha could be considered Young Turks’ secret weapon. For the most part, the label is known for it’s largest signee, The XX, but Sampha has been building up a repertoire as a talented producer, vocalist and just a well-rounded musician. Watch a live take of Indecision, below.
