ONE TO WATCH: Sam Smith

Sam-Smith

Sam Smith is our One To Watch today, taking us to “Nirvana” without Kurt Cobain (RIP)…

After his recent successes on Naughty Boy’s “La La La” and on Disclosure’s “Latch“, Sam Smith has released a song made by production duo “Craze and Hoax”. To be fair, I was actually looking to do a combine “Ones To Watch” on “Craze and Hoax” especially after all the work they have done with Emeli Sandé and many more. I do think they deserve their own one so look out for that next feature. Sam Smith signed to PMR Records (Jessie Ware’s label) and seems to be tipped for successes. His soulful tones over a mellow well mixed guitar foundation lends itself to his intention of taking us to Nirvana. The drums have just enough grit to keep us grounded yet being able to transport us to another place of soothing resonance while his vocals complement the Craze and Hoax production brilliantly. I’ve had it on repeat for quite a while.
