Singer and songwriter Sam Dickinson finally releases his first body of music for five years with a collection of very personal songs gathered together in the first of three EP’s entitled “From The Glass House”.

Sam has already released “Wild Sun” from the first part together with it’s catchy video as well as previewing exclusively with us last week the track “All We Are”. Now these two tracks are brought together along with four other brand new compositions for general release.

As Sam himself told us just two weeks ago “From The Glass House” parts 1, 2 and 3 will all develop into the sound that I’m wanting to create. When I said I was going to write music again I wanted to not just write about relationships breaking down but I wanted to use my voice to write about so many different aspects of life. There’s the fun tracks such as “Hanging By A Thread” (Part 1), I’m writing about losing my grandparents and someone very young in my family and the pain that comes with that in “Goodbye” (Part 3) and “Not The Time for Love” (Part 2), I had to write about anxiety and depression and that’s where “Someone Is Talking” (Part 1) comes through. I want this project to mean something to people.
Musically, it’s that blend of pop, dance and soul to create something fresh and now. I think “Wild Sun” sounds fresh. We need more men singing about tainted love.”

And judging by the quality of this first EP, each installment is going to be worth the wait. “Someone Is Talking” is definitely the standout track of this first EP, despite the superb “Wild Sun” having already penetrated the airways and fast become a standard. And we can’t wait for parts two and three to follow…and there’s also the prospect of a new album on the horizon too!

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!
