Biography

When he was 18 years old, Sam Smith wrote his first truthful song, a flashbulb moment for the brilliant blue-eyed soul singer. Three years later and the song has long since been discarded as a naive folly. Like all singer songwriters that are rich in emotion, knee-deep in their own small personal complications and dependent on their precociously youthful talent to engage with the world, Sam ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Between smashing it on guest vocal performances, Sam was crafting his own unique songs.
'I said to myself, I don't want to have a genre. I wanted to take a risk.' In the course of putting it together, Sam has worked with so many blue chip collaborative names: Fraser T Smith, Two Inch Punch, Eg White. But he has retained his sense of self. After his sublime debut EP entitled Nirvana , his first full release will be the albums big pop moment, 'Do It For The Love', a song that sounds like an instant, out of the box smash. But there is melancholia
within. Centering on the subject on an unrequited love, it is duty bound to make the listener a little teary as it uplifts. I think so. I've been talking about album titles and people are saying
oh but it s too sad but that s what it s about. I was sad and I wrote about being sad. Hopefully I ll be happier soon and I'll write about that.

His musical purity is starting to ring the right bells. Adele has tweeted her support. After one single show in New York he has become something of a cause celebre for global soulman, Maxwell. 'He's a great friend to have. He ties to Jessie Ware, Naughty Boy and that whole scene of London underground talent that is taking their new soul to the
mainstream.' Sam Smith might yet be at the vanguard of a wave of British talent schooled through the verbal brilliance of Jill Scott, India Arie and Angie Stone in the States a decade ago.

Why does he believe stardom beckons? 'When it came to writing and delivering I'd worked out that it was all about truth. When you listen to my album, the songs I love and my label love, it s all the personal things. That are relatable to other people.'

"In The Lonely Hour” is the debut album by English singer-songwriter Sam Smith, and follows after the release of his EP “Nirvana” late last year. On this showcase for his talent for soaring balladry, Smith draws mainly from American-style soul-pop while he displays an impressive vocal range. Although this record is not completely ballad heavy, it does feature mainly ballads, filled with powerful hooks and gospel choirs.

The catchy “Money On My Mind” was earlier released as a very successful single, and not only served as a great harbinger for this debut album, but it is also a perfect album opener and lead-up to the other songs, like the drenched in ‘60s strings and acoustic flutters “Good Thing.” The gospel-tinged “Stay With Me” shows some classic soul piano balladry, as Smith tugs at your heartstrings while he sings over sweeping strings and reverberant piano chords: “This ain’t love it’s clear to see, But darling stay with me.” This is followed by the acoustic ballad “Leave Your Lover,” a strings and light guitar plucks-infused track about being unlucky in love.

Then we segue into the country-soul of “I'm Not The Only One.” a Tom Waits-like piano track, before moving on to “I've Told You Now,” another ballad about an unrequited love situation. The anthemic pop track “Like I Can” is a more modern sounding song, as is the strings and piano-laced ballad “Life Support,” with its lolloping dubstep beats and indie-rock guitars. Then we come to another country-soul ditty, “Not in That Way,” before we move on to the gospel-ish “Lay Me Down,” a piano-led ballad that starts slowly as Smith pours out his heart to the woman he loves, but builds up to an explosive, string-drenched finale.

Sam Smith is a 22 year old British vocalist best known for providing the vocals to two UK smash Dance hits; "Latch" by Disclosure, and "La La La" by Naughty Boy. The latter song in particular made me sit up and take note of his beautiful soulful voice and I knew he would go far.

His debut album "In The Lonely Hour", inspired he says by loneliness and heartbreak, has already topped the UK charts and big things are also expected of him in the States. His lead-off Stateside single is the soulful Gospel-tinged ballad "Stay With Me" which is currently a US top 10 hit. There's more where that came from, the gently thumping "Good Thing", the retro Soul ballad "I'm Not The Only One", "I've Told You Now", the spare piano ballad "Not In That Way", and the spectacular "Make It To Me" (which is too brief). There is also an acoustic version of "Latch".

He's selected songs that display his soulful expressive vocals. However the polished piano/guitar ballad style gets rather same-sounding after a while, so upping the tempo are opening cut the groovy "Money On My Mind" (with his vocals flirting from lower register to falsetto in the blink of an eye), "Restart" (reminiscent of eighties Luther Vandross), and the incredible earworm that is "La La La". Loneliness and heartbreak never sounded so good.

I've been waiting for this LP to drop since February. It does NOT disappoint. There are, of course, the singles that we've already been privileged to hear: "Latch," "La La La," "Money On My Mind," "Stay With Me," "Lay Me Down," "Not In That Way," "Leave Your Lover," and "Make It To Me"--all deserving of their hit status. I personally think "Like I Can," with its tenuous relationship between pop beats and wistful lyricism, is a gem. This album is both compulsive listening AND easy to put on repeat. Welcome to superstardom, Sam Smith.

I never heard of Sam Smith like probally everyone until that night in March when he blew the roof off the dump on SNL. I couldn`t believe the voice coming from this kid, Usually when you watch a performer on SNL it`s the boy band of the second or the flavor of the month artist, well whoever booked this kid deserves a raise because he made this kid a STAR that night. As soon as he sang "Lay me Down" before wiping tears from my eyes i was searching the web looking for everything about this kid, i haven`t seen a artist that really moved me to tears since i saw Michael Jackson perform on "Motown 25" that night he did the Moonwalk for the first time and lipsync to "Billie Jean" which if you watch now still gives me chills like 33 years later, Well that`s how i felt watching this kid sing that night, His cd is just plain AWESOME, i`m telling all my friends to spend 11 bucks and buy it, i bought it at 1201am the night it was released. Sam if your not up for Grammys especially Best new Artist and especially song and record of the year for "Lay me Down" {listen to the acoustic version} it will be a crime...BUY THIS CD!!! NOW..TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!

Sam Smith has made me believe in music again. To listen to his talent is a blessing to the ears and your soul. Single-handidly he has reinvigorated the hope of artists actually being able to sing and boy can he sing. He is well worth the hype and then some. This is a beautiful album and you can feel every note that comes from his heart. This is one that you can put on repeat and listen to all day long. Well done Mr. Smith I hope you enjoy your stay at the top and I hope 'too much of a good thing' is just right for you. Favorite tracks: All of them.
