Info

Inspired by the folk revivalists of the 60s, a sixteen-year-old Sam Brookes began to write and perform while training as a gilder in his late father's workshop.  By his mid-twenties, Brookes had begun to receive serious critical recognition and his sophomore album, Kairos, was acclaimed by The Independent as one of the stand-out records of the year.

Brookes is reminiscent of Tim Buckley as he glides between the lower and upper registers of his four-octave range.  His pure voice, evocative lyrics and soaring melodies have made him a rising figure in the alt-folk scene.  Now in demand as a vocalist and collaborator, the long list of artists Brookes has worked with includes Scott Matthews, Lucy Rose, Newton Faulkner and Basement Jaxx.
