Singer songwriter Sam Brockington last played Tavistock Wharf in 2014 and is
looking forward to making his long awaited return this month.

Sam is a great example of a musician quietly plugging away over time in an attempt
to really get himself ‘industry ready’.

His obvious spirit for adventure has seen him throw himself head first into a whole
range of different musical settings and opportunities – all with the goal of broadening
his musical horizons.

Moving to London at the age of 18 from Tavistock, Sam set about exploring the
British music scene, and did well with regular weekly gigs in well-established venues
across the city.

Hankering for a change of scenery, he moved to Melbourne, Australia for a year,
further developing his musical style by gigging and busking every day in this magical
city of culture, sunshine and good vibes.

Drawing his influences from the worlds of blues and soul, his unique old school voice
and remarkable talent have drawn comparisons with a wealth of established artists.
BBC Radio 1 Producer Jacob Rickard says he loves his “fresh and unique sound”,
while BBC Introducing’s Sam Bonham praises him as “a fantastic vocal talent with
stand out lyrics and huge potential.”

He’s even set the blogosphere alight, with The Flux Presents stating after a live show
that they were “simply blown away by the sheer talent of Sam Brockington”.

Of his return to The Wharf Sam says I'm ticking off my musical bucket list one by one,
Glastonbury festival this year among one of them. Having now release my debut EP
I'm excited for the future and to return to The Wharf for the first time since 2014. I
was just starting then and played a monthly open mic night held there, it's a bit
surreal to think how much has changed for my music career since then so I can't wait
to come back!
