Had a couple hours spare this morn so I went and did a cover. Hope y’all like it xTweet
Sorry for the quietness of late! I’ve been starting work on my debut album, but we’re finally coming back to do some more shows this summer after a little break.
Here’s a couple I’ve announced already, more to come soon!
4th May – Live at Leeds (Everyman Cinema @ 7.30pm ACOUSTIC), Leeds
1st June – Chapter w/ Georgia Ruth Williams, Cardiff
27th July – Fell Foot Sound Festival, The Lake District
16th September – Festival Number 6, North Wales
Just a quick one to say thanks to all those who came down to our Leeds and London EP launches! I had a great time playing with the band, hope you all enjoyed it too.
This is just a heads up really to say my new EP is out now! You can get it from the SHOP link on this page, which will link you to here - http://samaireymusic.bandcamp.com/.Tweet
Super excited to announce the release of my new EP A Marker and a Map, which will be released on Hide and Seek records on Monday 26th March. It will be available from the SHOP link on this page, along with itunes. I’m playing two launch gigs with a FULL BAND in Leeds (23rd March) and London (28th March), it’d be great to see some of you down at one of them.

Just a little news round up, and a thank you for all the amazing support I’ve had in 2011. I’ve genuinely been overwhelmed by the reaction from everyone - from all the radio plays, the Maida Vale session, the great gigs and people I’ve met at each one, and everyone who has bought the records, thank you so much.
To round off an amazing year, The Blackout has also been chosen by Bethan Elfyn as BBC Radio Wales’ “Track Of The Year”, which I can’t quite believe as it came top ahead of some amazing bands like the Manic Street Preachers and Los Campesinos. You can listen to her countdown here:
Also, I recorded a Christmas video for the wonderful Leeds project Anthologies who are raising money for Simon On The Streets, a charity offering street-based support to the homeless. It’s a cover of In The Bleak Midwinter, which goes into a couple of verses I wrote myself entitled If You Get Lonely This Christmas. You can view it below, and please DONATE via the following link:
So - live shows are all done for this year, but already some good stuff gonna be happening in the new year - a new EP in Feb/March (release plans coming soon!), hopefully will be doing some touring, and also a first TV appearance on Channel 4.
That’s all for now, as always keep checking the ‘live’ tab for new tour dates, some new ones for 2012 there already.
Merry Christmas/Nadolig Llawen,
Hope you’re all well on this Sunday afternoon….
As I’m sure many of you will know already, I was lucky enough to be asked to record a session at Maida Vale studios for BBC Radio One, which myself and cellist Emma did back in September. It was broadcast earlier this week and will be available to listen to for the next few days via the following link…
We also made a video diary of us exploring the studios which was filmed by my brother Tom. You can view it below…
That’s all for now, keep checking the ‘live’ tab for new tour dates. Huge thanks to Huw Stephens for having us on the show!
