NI Music Prize Nominee Sam Wickens is releasing his new single ‘Murky Waters’ on the same date as his ‘Watson’ EP, both due 5th February 2021.   This marks the second single release from that forthcoming EP. 

The first single ‘Strange.24’ was released on 24th November 2020 to much critical acclaim.

The 5 track ‘Watson EP’ is the second major release since his critically acclaimed debut ‘All I’ve Seen’ album in 2019.  

‘Murky Waters’ sees Wickens progress once more as the “songwriting juggernaut” he has already proven himself to be. Combining slick production with raw feeling and that gorgeous vocal, ‘Murky Waters’ showcases Sam’s vocal prowess and his ability to suck the listener into his musical universe.

Compared to Jeff Buckley, John Martyn, Death Cab For Cutie, Tom Waits, Sam is a soulful writer and performer with a restless creativity, conveying a personal blend of Electronic, Soul, Blues, Gospel, Folk and Indie. This young and gifted artist humbly plies his craft with a focused sincerity, and has created a style of his own: consistently delivering on his reputation as a bewitching live performer.

In 2017 Sam worked with David Bowies legendary American record producer Tony Visconti (producer of scores of albums by major artists including: David Bowie, T.Rex, Paul McCartney, Damon Albarn, Moody Blues, Marc Almond, Kaiser Chiefs, etc) as a featured artist on a Sky Arts documentary about Tony’s amazing life and career ‘Tony Visconti’s Unsigned Heroes’.

About his new single: 

“Murky Waters is the realisation that I was raised and put through terrible circumstances. Constantly feeling alone through every obstacle that was placed in front of me. Traumatic events seemed to follow me no matter where I ran, I started to believe that I was some sort of gatekeeper, that my purpose was to absorb the terrible things so others didn’t need too.”

Sam will also be playing his first live show since 27th February 2020 with Singular Artists in The Workmans Club in Dublin on the 1st of April, 2021. Tickets are €14 (+ €1 booking fee) and can be purchased here:

Sam’s music is personal and reflective. About Murky Waters, he expresses how he has often felt alone throughout his life. Sam’s music videos are well thought-out and articulated – Jo.

About his new single “Strange.24” Sam says “It’s a song about the acceptance of recovering from a battle with mental illness, The feeling of something changing within my life and trying to accept that it is actually happening. After fighting with mental illnesses for such a long time, the possibility of it leaving was a complete myth to me. Life without deep hopelessness seemed strange to me as I was accustomed to the black hole that was my normality. Just as you would need to get used to living in a new home, I had to get used to living as a person that was no longer mentally ill. This song was a therapeutic way to help me move on with my recovery.”


Sam will also be playing his first live show in over a year in The Workmans Club in Dublin on the 1st of April, 2021. Tickets are €14 and can be purchased here https://secure.tickets.ie/Listing/EventInformation/43365/sam-wickens-the-workmans-club-1-April-2021?fbclid=IwAR3ekdowtYDGyzZCgT2ikeBo-QafnpgqLnbG1DPlHPt2MwgYs0rNwk9ON3c

Bristol🇬🇧

Over a year ago, I visited Bristol with my Mom. My aunt won two flight tickets on the radio and gave them to us. Bristol is somewhere I would never think of going otherwise, so it was hard to know what to expect. We stayed for 3 nights in a lovely hotel close to the centre. One of the days we went to Bath, which was an hour bus journey. It was worth the trip to this pretty town. Highlights in Bath included The Roman Baths and a Fashion museum. There are lots of shops in Bristol and one of the main attractions was Clifton Suspension Bridge. We also did a river cruise.
