Will Samson is a British-born musician exploring the middle ground between ambient, electronic, experimental & acoustic music – using a variety of recording techniques, which often focus heavily on the use of old tape machines & analogue equipment.
Proceeding the release of Balance in 2012, Will Samson toured across the UK and Europe, sharing stages with Kurt Vile, Marissa Nadler, Shearwater, Pinback, Timber Timbre, Ólafur Arnalds, Do Make Say Think and many more.
He has since worked on a collaborative 12” with Tom Demac (It Grows Again), a solo EP (Light Shadows), music for short films, a full-length album with his electronic-leaning project ’Will Samson & Heimer’ – all the whilst performing drums as a touring member of Fenster (Morr Music).
“…running themes and riffs waft over songs so heartfelt, you dare not speak over them”
“a very special artist”
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
“Awash with Eno-esque ambience, and recorded late at night to cassette – the glitches and hiss adding to the dusky atmosphere. 8/10″
