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’ (mastered by Nils Frahm) 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.
Wasting no time, he then worked on a collaborative 12” with Tom Demac (It Grows Again), an EP (Light Shadows), a full-length album with his electronic-leaning project ’Will Samson & Heimer’ – all whilst performing drums as a touring member of Fenster (Morr Music)
October 2015 finally saw the release of ‘Ground Luminosity’ via Talitres – an album that Samson had meticulously crafted for two years. The record focused more on electronics than previous releases and featured lush string arrangements from Belgian violinist, Beatrijs De Klerck.
This was then closely followed by an instrumental EP, entitled ‘Lua’, in July 2016. Most of the EP was composed and recorded during a few weeks that same Summer, following an accident that left him unable to sing for a short period of time.
During October / November 2016, Will Samson returned to touring as the official support for The Album Leaf across the UK and Europe, as well as various headline shows.
2017 will see the release of Samson’s latest solo album.
