Entry Requirements: 18+
The Blue Arrow and Celtic Connections presents: Sam Amidon
'It’s been (it still is) a process of trying to find what I want from music and what kind of music makes me happy, in terms of writing and performing." Soham wrote his first song at 10 years old and this was the beginning of a love for music and creative writing. As the songwriting flourished throughout the years, he would also regularly perform to close friends. Now, as a 21 year old singer-songwriter from Kings Lynn, Soham is about to release his debut 4-track EP. The accompanying 4 videos all shot in the studio whilst the recording session was in full flow go some way to translating the emotion and intensity to his words and music.
A veteran of 250 shows to-date, this year alone, he’s played such notable festivals as The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Hit The North, Dot To Dot as well as Deer Shed and Splendour. He tours Europe this Autumn as special guest to the Pierce Brothers.
