Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Sam Carter has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention-grabbing appearance on Later…with Jools Holland. Sam has toured the world, equally happy to perform intimate solo shows on acoustic guitar, or to collaborate with other artists. One such collaboration, Sweet Liberties, toured major UK venues, spawned an album and featured on BBC Radio 3in late 2016.
Sam’s third solo album How The City Sings was released in April 2016, supported by a 15 date tour, culminating in a packed-out show at Kings Place in London.
Sam continues to work with groundbreaking band False Lights: featuring songs premiered in a rip-roaring live session on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show in January 2018, their second album Harmonograph is due for release in February and looks set to build on the success of their Folk Award-nominated debut Salvor which fRoots hailed as ‘A game changer for all involved, and perhaps even the scene in general’.
