Biography

Samson & Delilah are a 5 piece Australian/British chamber-psych-folk-pop group based in Manchester led by the songwriting partnership of husband and wife Sam Lench and Anna Zweck. Having played as a duo and in several bands within Manchester’s burgeoning new-folk scene, most notably ‘The Waverton Collective’, Sam and Anna eventually joined forces with Michael Doward (Double Bass), Tom Rydeard (Drums) and Anna’s fellow South Australian Tammy Hermann (Flute, Piano, Accordion). The Samson & Delilah band formed during the recording of their self-titled debut album of 2009, which was nominated for Best Debut Album Of The Year by Spiral Earth, and led to airplay on 6 Music and shows at several UK festivals. Supports have included Horse Feathers, Arbouretum, Cherry Ghost, 3 Daft Monkeys and Mick Turner (Dirty Three).

The band’s second album ‘And Straight On Till Morning’ is a beautiful record of chamber folk, immaculately recorded in a restored Victorian concert hall. Recorded almost totally live over a single week, the record uses the vast space of the concert hall to full effect, with natural reverb and multiple ambient microphones capturing the dynamics of a band totally at ease with each other and their songs. Often playing together in a circle, their music directly communicates truths between performer and listener.
