New track Leave Me Alone is a galloping number. Acoustic guitar mingles with strings and drums while Sam’s captivating voice takes centre stage. Lyrically, the track feels of the moment, with reference to “thoughts and prayers” and “industrial obsession”.

Leave Me Alone is from Sam’s debut album A Little Bit of Madness and I really feel he’s going to find a solid fan base for his music. There’ll definitely be an audience for him here in York. Check out Leave Me Alone below.
