Sam Calver Q&A

Introduce yourselves –  tell us about you, your background, music and formation.

Hey I’m Sam Calver! I’m a singer songwriter from Hastings and I’ve been gigging since I was 16, I signed to Island Records 2 years ago and released an EP, I’ve spent the last 2 years in the studio crafting my sound and the artist I want to be, taking it back to basics with live instruments. There’s new music coming very soon!

What’s your favourite thing to do in Manchester or where do you aim for when visiting?

I’ve actually never been to Manchester! So I’m looking forward to exploring, lemme know where’s good people!

Which other artists are you going to try and check out at NBHD?

My Hastings boys Kid Kapichi for sure! Love The Twang too!

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Right now I’d love to work with Mark Ronson, or Calvin Harris. Both genius’!

Can you remember the first song you wrote when you were young? What was it called?

Yeah ha! It was called ‘Bedroom Stars’ and about a break up I think.

If you could have a meal with three musicians, dead or alive, who would it be?

Man that’s a tough one! I think Jimi Hendrix because he was such an innovator, Lewis Capaldi because he’s hilarious and Dave Grohl because he’s a legend and full of amazing information and stories.

What can people expect from your NBHD set?

New material, real and honest songs that are about where I’m at in my life right now.

Plans for the rest of the year?

We’re putting an EP out and loads more shows! Get Involved!
