One of the fastest rising British male artists of 2022, Sam Tompkins releases the who do you pray to? EP alongside emotive visuals for new single “My Brother” today via Republic Records.
With a host of stellar singles already released from the EP; including “Whole,” “Bloodline” and “Hero”; Sam honed his craft across the collection of 7 tracks revealing his unique voice as a songwriter instilled in the narrative arc of his songs.
New single “My Brother” encapsulates his intimate story telling style, as Sam notes; “‘My Brother’ is really special to me. I love it so much. The origin of it is actually a sad but lovely story. When I was about 18, we lost our Nana and at the funeral we had to read the eulogy. I got about 6 words in before being in floods of tears, my brother read the rest and was so strong. Flash forward to last year when my Papa (Grandpa) passed away and I decided to do the eulogy. Sadly because of covid my brother couldn’t make it as he was working away in Canada. This time I got the whole way through it and I remember getting the text from my brother who watched it through a live stream that I smashed it and I felt so proud because the only way I was able to do it was knowing I was the exact age my brother had stepped up and been brave five years prior.”
