London singer presents his debut heart-breaking album.
The season will open with a concert by by London-based singer, songwriter and producer Sampha. As one of the UK’s most enigmatic young artists, Sampha has spent years generously dividing his time between solo and collaborative work, lending his talents to a whole range of standout releases; from homegrown UK contemporaries such as SBTRKT, FKA twigs, Lil Silva and Jessie Ware to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Beyonce, Kanye West, Solange and Frank Ocean.
In February 2017, it was time for Sampha to tell his own story with the release of his debut album Process. The album—an achingly beautiful, emotionally raw and musically adventurous body of work—is the culmination of years of work and was one of the year’s most acclaimed albums, culminating in Sampha winning the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Sampha’s live performances are equally emotive, leading to sold-out shows around the world that have been met with widespread acclaim.
