Sam Baird releases “Feelings Of Dying Alone”
Sam Baird is a 20 year old singer/songwriter from Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. He would class his music as Indie/Rock with some Swampy Blues thrown in for good measure! Arctic Monkeys are an obvious influence on his current sound. Others such as David Bowie, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Hot Teeth also playing a major role in shaping my sound. He releases his brand new single, “Feelings Of Dying Alone”, today and it has a special message.
Sam told us himself about the song: “I really think this song has the potential to help, even if just a little, the NHS while they fight this battle for us. It is the most approachable song from my upcoming album with the chance of really making a difference. I was originally planning to release this as the principle single from my upcoming debut album. However, in light of the recent pandemic, the album release has been delayed. I have been able to bring forward the release of this single so I can support frontline NHS Workers and Volunteers. All the proceeds from this single are being donated to NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal fund to help support the wellbeing of the frontline staff during this crisis”.
Sam is an indie/alternative/rock musician with a passion for writing and recording his own material. Sam’s music career really started with the release of his debut EP, No One Can See You Now. Released to a small, but overwhelmingly positive response, he quickly followed up the release with two more singles, “Put On Those Glasses” and “We Blow Everything Away But Ourselves”. Sam’s passion for music started at a young age, being introduced to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, at around the age of 9. These bands would become the backbone for Sam’s early musical exploration. When he turned 10, he bought his first guitar, an Aria 714 Stratocaster.
His passion grew stronger by the day as he practised, falling in love with the instrument. His collection of guitars grew throughout the 2010’s and so did his musical taste. Artists like the Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie started influencing his music more and more. Early bands that he was part of never quite pushed far or hard enough until he was forced into a front man role due to the then front man not being able to make a show. Sam never had much confidence in his singing ability before that performance. This set him on a path of becoming a stand alone artist. Soon he was honing his singing skills, bettering himself whenever he could.
