My name's Sam, from the coast of Essex, in the UK. I make catchy croutons with things like pots and pans. I like to try and take the singer songwriter genre down different paths, via the influence of jazz, rock, hip hop and folk. In my music I've taken influence from artists like Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead and Thundercat to name a few. However the most important thing to me is to create a style of my own.

I recently released a single called '15/8' producer by Tom Donovan (Monster Florence). It was recently BBC 6Music's 'Tune of the Week' & BBC Introducing 'Tip of the Week' - and has been featured ten times on BBC 6Music by Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq, Shaun Keaveny and Gideon Coe. 15/8 has also received play on Radio X from John Kennedy. On top of this, 15/8 has been featured on Spotify's 'Fresh Finds: Six Strings' playlist.

The music video for '15/8' made with friend and filmmaker Jasper Fell Clark. has just been premiered by CLASH Magazine. With the response to the first single, I am really excited to put out the second.

I started off down the solo route in late 2016, wanting to make something as simple as possible, just on my own. So I made my debut EP - 'Nothing in Particular'. I wrote some songs one evening and then recorded them myself the following morning.

Having really enjoyed making it, and with the song 'Bodies' receiving airplay on BBC 6Music, I made another EP - 'Moon Jelly'. This EP included a much larger variety of instruments and sounds such as synthesis, trombone and recording the track 'Salt Water' just using my phone. It was also far more developed musically than the first and helped me in finding my own style. The opening track, 'We Live in a Desert' also received a couple of features on 6Music, from Tom Robinson.

I have tried to sculpt my own style by using all sorts of things for percussion such as pots and pans. Also by really making sure all of my songs primarily sound different from one another. I also try to evolve, and keep trying out new styles and ideas to keep my music moving forward as much as I can.

I play live with my band - under 'Sam Eagle & The Lemon Lizards', giving my work a boost. For fans of Radiohead, Tom Misch and Thundercat, The Lemon Lizards are made up of Inigo Chancellor (guitar & percussion), Eddie Jowers (bass), Ben Butler (drums), and Will Heaton (trombone, synth & percussion).

Having gigged intensively, the band have quickly picked up a strong local following. Playing the local Colchester and Bury St. Edmunds venues, such as Colchester Arts Centre supporting Say Sue Me and SuperGlu - as well as playing London shows, including a sold-out headline show at O2 Academy2 Islington. As well as festivals such as Liverpool Sound City and Great Escape Festival in Brighton, this May.

We will be playing a live session on BBC Radio 6Music for Tom Robinson on the 28th July.

Bless you, Sam x
