FRESH: ‘Cry Wolf’ – Sam Dickinson

Sam Dickinson “Cry’s Wolf”!

Our good friend Sam Dickinson has done it again with his new single, “Cry Wolf”, which infuses disco, pop and a confident message of empowerment, giving Sam Dickinson his finest single (we think) to date! “Cry Wolf” is the opening track on his new album, “Off Script” (due October 2020) and sets the tone for the remainder of the album. It is a message of strength.

From the opening line “I know you better than you think I do, but I can see right through you” Sam sets the tone. There’s a sense of confidence in what he’s saying. Building up to a dramatic, edgy, disco chorus with the lyrics “Can’t feel sorry for ya, ain’t got no worry for ya, won’t feel sorry for you”. It’s a song which could have been written for artists such as Sam Smith, Mika or Years & Years.

“Off Script” is the second album from the Newcastle born singer–songwriter. Having already teased the album with the singles “Diamond Skin” and his take on the Everything But the Girl classic “Missing“, Sam has amassed almost 700,000 streams of his music across all platforms. He has been played on the UK’s biggest radio station, BBC Radio 2, multiple times by the likes of Alan Carr, Paul O Grady, Melanie Sykes and Graham Norton, who also said “he just keeps getting better and better”.

2019’s “All We Are” was also picked up by Spotify’s editorial team and added to playlists with over 1.5 million followers. Sam is one of the North East’s fastest rising stars. The album “Off Script” is also available to pre-order digitally on iTunes and Amazon as well as on CD and limited edition cassette from his website. Sam will also be opening for Alexandra Burke in 2020 and Gabrielle in 2021.

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!
