Biography

In January 2007, Sam Isaac independently released his “Sticker, Star and Tape” mini album in conjuction with Worcester’s Little Hellfire Club Label. This was coupled with a mammoth 7-week UK tour in support of the release, which took in venues each night and also continued Sam’s habit of playing living rooms of fans’ houses around the gigs. Sam spent several weeks of this tour with the delightful Simply Luke Leighfield.

The Sam Isaac show frequently resembles an indie cottage industry. Friends make artwork, do recording, direct music videos and don clipboards. Perfect strangers sell his CDs. Sam’s part of the bargain is donning an acoustic guitar, a Casio keyboard or occasionally just his own voice and making the music that is at the centre of all of this.

Influenced by Bright Eyes, Spinto Band and Ed Harcourt, twenty-year-old Sam grew up in the sleepy town of Malvern in the West Midlands before moving to East London in 2005. In just a year Sam Isaac has released the now sold-out, limited edition “Compass Scattered Love EP” on London label Back2Forward Records (June 2006), completed a full two-week tour of the UK, had local radio sessions and received plaudits from press across the country.

Currently being championed by Marsha Shandur on XFM, Sam has now put out his first min-album, Sticker, Stars and Tape, available to buy from his myspace and website.

    Sam was so good at Alcopopalooza. Really hope he plays more dates sometime.

    If you are here, and wondering if Sam Isaac has released a second album, the answer is yes. Go to his bandcamp to download it. It's pretty swell.

    First listened to "Bears" on chuck, rest of the album is also great! anyone else get the feeling that he sounds ALOT like Kele Okereke from Bloc Party?
