Previous to winning the award I had only heard Sam feature on the song “La La La ” with Naughty Boy.
As with Tom when he won his award the previous year, Sam didn’t get to sing at the awards ceremony so I didn’t hear his new music.
He then released a couple of songs and then the album “In The Lonely Hour” but I still didn’t pay enough attention.
It wasn’t until I saw him perform “Like I Can” on X Factor that I sat up and took notice.
His lyrics are very personal and his voice makes them even more bitter sweet. I will absolutely be paying him more attention.
