Elle King & Samm Henshaw Support Dates with James Bay
Young artists Elle King and Sam Henshaw will be supporting James Bay when he plays at the 02 Academy in October!
Having just finished a short UK run of dates supporting Modest Mouse, playing the Calling Festival main stage alongside Ryan Adams & Noel Gallagher and then storming T in the Park, Elle King releases her debut album in the UK this October.
Frank and fearless, tender and rowdy, this marks the true arrival of the young singer & guitarist as a force to be reckoned with. Raised in rural Ohio, before relocating to New York via Art College in Philadelphia, King started playing guitar at age 13; “I wanted to play rock and roll and be a girl and do it. I started listening to the Runaways and Blondie—all the rad chicks.”
A strong contender on most ‘ones to watch’ lists thanks to the revealing of ‘Only Wanna Be With You’, ‘Redemption’ and ‘Better’, Samm Henshaw’s hugely anticipated debut EP is set for release on 25th September. Having already garnered mainstream radio support from Radio 1’s Dev, Phil & Alice, Huw Stephens & Annie Mac, 2015 is looking very busy indeed for the talented 21-year-old singer-songwriter. This year Samm has already played at Parklife, Wireless, Barn On The Farm, Bushstock and many more.
Line Of Best Fit – “Samm Henshaw, at only 21 years old, sounds like his soul is already packed to the brim.”
The Guardian – ‘If you fed the meat of D’Angelo, Leon Bridges and Miguel into pop’s sausage machine, you’d squeeze Samm Henshaw’s Better out of the end.’
