Listen: Samm Henshaw Releases New EP ‘The Sound Experiment 2’



Rising UK bred soul impresario Samm Henshaw has released his anticipated sophomore EP, The Sound Experiment 2.

Led by the uplifting single “Our Love,” the 5-track project is steeped in vintage, authentic soul. Building from his 2015 debut, the ‘experiment’ continues as the young crooner displays a vocal, and sonic depth well beyond his years.

A blend of singer-songwriter storytelling, with blues guitar, and soulful emotion in his melodies, Henshaw has quickly garnered the support of BBC 1Xtra, Spotify, Google Play and many others. Following a string of sold-out shows, the 22-year-old has embarked on an extensive European festival run this summer, in support of the new EP.

On the warm and feel-good, “Our Love,” Samm reflects on his childhood growing up in South London, and the experience of his parents (who are originally from Nigeria). “I wrote ‘Our Love,’ about a story my Dad tells from when he first started dating my Mum: his family didn’t approve, but he didn’t care.”

On the closing track “Easy,” Samm lets himself live past his vulnerabilities. “I’m a broken man, yes I am / But I won’t let it stand in my way” … “It’s only for a little while longer, I’m trying to stay strong, but it’s hard when you’re shattered in two / Things could be easy, easy, if I hadn’t gone at this alone / That would be easy, easy, easier for my soul.”

Stream the EP below via Spotify, and pick it up on iTunes now.
