Information:

Sam Brookes is reminiscent of Tim Buckley as he glides between the lower and upper registers of his four-octave range. His pure voice, evocative lyrics and soaring melodies have made him a rising figure in the alt-folk scene.

Inspired by the British and American folk revivalists of the 60's, a sixteen-year-old Brookes began to write and perform while training as a gilder in his late father's workshop. By his mid-twenties, Brookes had begun to receive serious critical recognition, his self-released album, Kairos, being acclaimed by The Independent as one of the stand-out records of 2014. Now in demand as a vocalist and collaborator, the long list of artists Brookes has worked with includes Scott Matthews, Lucy Rose, Newton Faulkner and Basement Jaxx.

Tempus, released 3rd May, sees Sam rework Kairos’s most arresting, intimate songs into richly layered acoustic versions with the help of producer Laurence Love Greed and some of the UK’s finest session players.

“he excels at propulsive, narratively rich folk, delivered in a soaring, clear-as-a-bell singing voice” - The Sunday Times
“there are vast emotional reserves at work” - The Independent
“a stunning work on so many levels” - Folk Radio
