Having spent several years gigging on a variety of stages around the UK as a solo performer, collaborating with other artists, songwriters and producers and carefully developing and refining his song craft along the way, Sam Hinds is proud to finally be stepping out of the studio and into the light with his debut EP.
‘Rolling Stone’ boasts four fully produced tracks, perfectly capturing Sam’s poignant lyrics, passionate vocals and dynamic guitar playing. Rooted firmly in the folk and southern rock territory, with a nod to country and blues; this record draws influence from artists such as Chris Stapleton, John Mayer, Ariel Posen, The Bros. Landreth, Whiskey Myers and more.
Sam has a fierce dedication to his craft and 2020 is poised to be a pivotal year in his artistic development. The release of ‘Rolling Stone’ will see Sam’s live performance expand. With the introduction of a full live band behind him and a growing army of new songs, Sam is set to become an exciting and authentic addition to the flourishing UK folk/rock scene.
..."Sam Hinds is a hell of a find. His voice is soft, smooth with the perfect element of whisky, gravel and age old experience. He has clearly honed his craft. Expertly written lyrics, relatable and honest. These are the ultimate driving songs; the track ‘Rolling Stone has a phenomenal hook; Sam’s voice builds and reaches exquisite heights. This EP is one of the best things to come out of 2020. This guy is special."...

..."I was able to have an exclusive first listen ten days before release and I can honestly say it just blew me away! The four tracks are beautiful and truly addictive. They end up being in your head all day. Then there’s that voice – raw and passionate. The EP is warm, really nicely produced and it’s personal – as the lyrics tell us a story. Sam’s story.
Sam Hinds, definitely one to watch in 2021!"...
