Electronic Press Kit
Dubbed 'the poet of our time' Samantics is a one man wall of sound with his unique blend of live, multi-instrumental spoken word. It is hard-hitting, musical poetry, with a sprinkle of hip-hop. With a loopstation and a sh*t load of instruments, Samantics delivers a refreshing and heartfelt sound. With more energy than a ferret after 18 shots of espresso, the effort and concentration he puts in to his live shows leaves audiences transfixed. If you're more into drinking tea than murking Gs then Samantics is one to watch!
Samantics is an advocate for Mental Health and uses his music to express his own experiences and inform others to try and reduce the stigma many still face today. He has spoken at The Houses of Parliament to show how music and the arts can impact mental health. Since stepping onto the scene with his trusty loop pedal in 2015, Samantics has taken huge strides. He is now filling festival tents (including Glastonbury Festival, Bearded Theory & Beautiful Days) and has supported the likes of Frank Turner, The Sugar Hill Gang, Sound of the Sirens, The Undercover Hippy and Goldie Lookin' Chain. He was recently awarded 'Best Solo Male - South West' in the LWM Awards and was played on BBC 6 Music by Steve Lamacq.

"Just a banjo playing, Eminem Wannabe"
"In my 9 years of running a festival venue and small festivals, I've come across some incredible musical gems. Samantics is floating somewhere around the top. Raw, passionate, captivating and honest. The fact that he's also beautifully talented is a bonus."
Gail Something Else
"Samantics is a wonderfully unique performer and writer with a brilliant engaging delivery to each finely crafted lyric. His songs are so clever/funny/sad you have to listen numerous times to take them all in. This guy is made for festivals."
Tony Lock, One Umbrella Music
"He's such a talented and handsome young man."
