Discovery: Sam Johnson

Sam Johnson is a British singer songwriter who has already hit the radar of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and Radio X.

His new track The Kids Are Alright is a bit of a nostalgia trip. Sam poetically recalls our collective lost youth with strained vocals over percussion and acoustic guitar. It’s a slow build to a climax that would go down well from a summer festival stage (if there are to be any this year!)

The Kids Are Alright will feature on Sam’s upcoming EP Are We There Yet? It’s well worth a spin if you’re into acoustic and expansive commercial music with something to say. Check it out below.
