Having spent their teenage years leading orchestras, fronting funk bands and writing musicals, SAM WOOF is setting out on a new project. One in which everything is stripped away and all that’s left is a piano and a single wavering voice. Combining bits of jazz and pop with moments of poetry and theatricality, this new project combines Sam’s skills as a songwriter, with their history as a performer. Vocally dexterous, Sam’s voice has been compared to Anthony and the Johnsons, with influences ranging from Laura Mvula and Adele to Stephen Sondheim. In an interview with a drunk man by a bus station, they said ‘I write because I have questions. And because I don’t have any answers. And because talking is much harder than singing.’
