We've got a very special show (in association with International Talent Booking) from Sam Brookes on Sunday 8th October at The Joiners! Support Mike Vaughan and Ben Craig. £8 advance tickets are on sale from the venue website (link above) and Mirrorman Events shop: http://mirrormanshop.bigcartel.com£10 on the door. London based songsmith Sam Brookes is one of the UK alt-folk’s best kept secrets. His acclaimed 2014 album Kairos was tipped by The Independent for a Mercury Prize nomination, received support from the likes of Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2 and granted Sam the opportunity to perform at Live In Hyde Park. Sam is currently writing and recording new material for a forthcoming album and will be performing at only a handful of shows in 2016 to road test new material and perform current favorites. Sam’s singing career began at an early age, filling the rafters of Her Majesty the Queen’s private chapel, as a chorister. Now his unmistakable, soaring vocal combined with crafty arrangements, deft guitar-playing and arresting lyrics delivers an aural patchwork that has been positively likened to Wild Beasts, Bon Iver, Nick Drake and Tim Buckley. Sam is also the featured vocalist on the Basement Jaxx single ‘What A Difference Your Love Makes’ and has collaborated and toured with the likes of Lucy Rose and Newton Faulkner.In 2017 Sam returned with the single ‘My Girl Drinks Coffee’, championed by BBC 6music. In September 2017, amidst extensive touring, Sam will release a new EP titled ‘Ice Caps’.www.sam-brookes.com
