Irish singer-songwriter Sam Wickens will release his debut album ‘All I’ve Seen’ on June 13th 2019. Ahead of the album, a single release ‘Ravens & Crows’ will be available on key streaming platforms on Friday April 26th.
Wickens gained early fans in both Stewart Copeland and Tony Visconti. His music, among other things, has been compared to the soft alt-folk of Bon Iver. ‘Ravens & Crows’ is a deeply mournful affai with a spacious arrangement. A sad cello and a cinematic piano are very much central to giving Sam’s thoughtful music a sense of heart, but many listeners will find a love for his naturalistic and huge voice, which seems to stretch from the quieter tones of Jeff Buckley to the bombast of Matt Bellamy in a heartbeat.
