London Musician Series: Sam Way

Sam Way, Singer/Songwriter

Sam Way has been songwriting, creating new music, collaborating, and performing live under his own name for about 6 years now, but has safely been in love with music for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Devon, binged the most obscure music at every opportunity and played the piano informally and then eventually moved to the 'big smoke' 9 years ago to be amongst all the opportunity there. 

He taught himself the guitar upon moving up and began, in the most organic way with no real goal in mind, to write songs about life, exploring his love for language and music to shape songs that seemed to bookmark these moments in his life. He kept on loving it, kept on growing and everything has started to develop exponentially in the last year. He's about to release 6 new tracks before mid 2019, and his involvement in The Rattle space is a massively exciting start to this year.
