“Wild Sun” infuses disco and modern production giving the sound a stylish edge. Sam Dickinson returns to the music scene with the catchy single “Wild Sun” set to be released Friday 12th October. It is the first single from “From The Glass House” following on 16th November 2018.

“Wild Sun” blends disco, orchestration and modern beats to create a soulful dance classic in the making, which is perfect for the end to the Summer. It is a story of self-empowerment at the end of a relationship, telling you to follow your instincts. “Wild Sun” is the first single from a 3-part EP series titled “From The Glass House”, the singer’s first release since 2014’s “When You Left Me”, which received airplay on BBC Radio 2 and New York City’s SiriusXM giving the track coverage to over seven million people. It also allowed his last album “The Stories That Occurred” to chart in the UK Top 40 on the iTunes Soul chart.

Sam successfully completed a Pledge Music campaign to raise the funds to be able to release “From The Glass House: Part One” and done so in half the time allocated by Pledge Music. Sam has been a regular performer at Pride’s across the UK, being a regular feature at Newcastle Pride since 2009 and regularly having performed in front of 30,000 people, which have several times placed him in the YouTube Top 40 most viewed following the performances. He is currently a presenter on Pride Radio, an LGBT radio station aimed at the 25-50 year old market, which transmits on FM across the North East.

Having spent time away from releasing music Sam has created 3 EP’s which are worth the wait. “From The Glass House: Part One” features the disco heavy “Hanging By A Thread”, as well an acoustic version of the second single from the series called “All We Are”, remixes of the track come courtesy of Handbag House for that club vibe, whilst Lackjack and Hugh Williams S.O.S. remix which give two different takes to please Dickinson’s soul fans. The “Wild Sun” remix EP is available on the 16th November and is available to pre order now.

Coming from Gateshead in the North East of England, Sam has been a constant presence in the music scene there. His passion for music is exemplified every week during his show on Pride Radio as well as the delivery in his performances on tour.

“Wild Sun” is available on all digital outlets now following its premier on Pride World Radio. “From The Glass House: Part One” is released 16th November 2018.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
