Still just 27-year old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand-out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and, most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums. Now it’s time for Sampha to tell his own story and Process, produced by Sampha himself and Rodaidh McDonald, is set to be his defining musical statement.

2016 has seen Sampha become one of the most in-demand new live acts around, with two London shows at Corsica Studios and The Electric Brixton selling out in a matter of minutes. In fact, every one of Sampha’s UK and North American tour dates this year have sold out.

Sampha highly-anticipated debut album, titled Process, was released in February on Young Turks label via Rhythmethod in NZ, and has received rapturous applause the world over.

"Process is an exercise in catharsis, a deep breath in that lays Sampha’s soul bare through gorgeous vignettes of his life. He worries he regrets, he aches. He’s human." - The Skinny 10/10

"Process is a moving, musical autobiography of futuristic, soulful electronica and brittle R'n'B." -
Mixmag 9/10

"Sampha's lyrics are clever and his voice so inherently likeable that it works." - Q Mag 8/10
"Process... is a soulful, calm-inducing, there-is-still-beauty-in-the-world light in the dark." - thespinoff
