FRESH: ‘Off Script’ – Sam Dickinson

Sam Dickinson is “Off Script”

“Off Script” is the fourth single from the upcoming second album from regular Sam Dickinson, of the same name, due in October 2020. The song is pure pop reminiscent of post 2000 George Michael, Sam Smith, Mika and Years & Years. The track is about following your own path in life and not what other people choose for you. Originally, it was intended to be released in the run up to Northern Pride, which Sam was due to play alongside Gabrielle.

“Off Script” is the second album from the Newcastle born singer–songwriter. Having already teased the album with the singles “Diamond Skin“, his take on the Everything But the Girl classic “Missing” and the disco infused “Cry Wolf“, he has amassed over 800,000 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. All of his songs combined have been added to Spotify playlists with followers in excess of 3 million followers. He 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 be opening for Alexandra Burke and Gabrielle in 2021. He is currently writing for artists signed to Sony and Universal Records!

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!
