Sam­pha’s triumph

Vocable (Anglais) - - Échos -

2017 is de­fi­ni­te­ly

Sam­pha’s year. In Sep­tem­ber, the Bri­tish sin­ger­song­wri­ter won the Mer­cu­ry prize, one of the UK’s most pres­ti­gious mu­sic awards. The 28-yea­rold ar­tist beat other pres­ti­gious no­mi­nees such as Ed Shee­ran, Alt J, The xx and the Glass Ani­mals. For a long time, he was bet­ter known as a guest vo­ca­list on other people's re­cords, his soul­ful voice ap­pea­ring on songs by Beyon­cé, Drake and Ka­nye West. Sam­pha’s de­but al­bum Pro­cess has been wi­de­ly prai­sed by cri­tics. This vic­to­ry should pro­pel him fur­ther in­to the spot­light.
