If you haven’t heard about Sam Smith, it’s about time! The General Truth thinks Sam is one of the most vibrant and powerful singers to come into the music industry in quite some time. With an amazingly powerful and versatile voice, he will have you following along with his music and wondering where he could possibly take things next.
Sam Smith was born May 1992 hailing from the United Kingdom. He’s most well known today for being featured on Disclosure’s hit single “Latch” which peaked at number eleven on the UK charts. In May 2013 he was featured on another breakout song called “La La La” by fellow British producer Naughty Boy.
Sam has already released the lead single “Lay Me Down” from his new album which is due out on May 26, 2014. His second single “Money on My Mind” was released on February 16th. Don’t be fooled by the title of the song as its a wonderful anthem which goes against the grain of the typical money hungry attitude we tend to hear in popular music these days. The song is a dedication to passion and a testament to Sam’s love for his craft, emphasizing that for him, money is not the motivating factor in his career, he simply does it for the love of music. What a wonderful reminder that through positivity, love, and dedication while doing something you love you can achieve great results!
We salute Sam Smith and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this ultra talented young man! Check out a few of his songs below:
