Born and raised in north London, Samson Ashe achieved a great buzz with his debut single ‘Too Rough' (37 Adventures, 2017), which received international acclaim including support by BBC Radio1, Virgin Radio, BBC R1 Xtra, BBC Radio London Introducing (featured artist), Radio X X-Posure, Clash Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit and more. Alongside this he was featured on over 16 New Music Friday playlists, with over 600k plays on Spotify and 41,000 organic SoundCloud plays.
Samson is currently working with Toby Scott, Cashmere Cat, Joe Rubel and Alunageorge and will be releasing more singles into 2021, as well as working on his debut album.
Press play to the carefree days of the past. 'Fun' is Samson Ashe's warm, nostalgic ode to growing up in the 90's - that magical period of childhood when things were much simpler and you could just be yourself because there was no pressure to be anything else.
Produced by P*nut (Amy Winehouse, Dido, Wiley) and biLLLy (Emily Burns, Betsy), Fun is playful and effervescent with a chorus that will get stuck in your head for days.
Says Samson, “Fun is a nostalgic ode to childhood when things were more simple and there was no price to who you were because nobody cared...I really miss that. Unapologetically I am who I am and I miss and need that fearless kid that grew up in Stamford Hill...his honestly and unfiltered voice.. I hope the vibe’s captured, please enjoy.”
Samson Ashe won hearts and critical acclaim with his debut track ‘Too Rough’ (released via 37Adventures) back in 2017, showcasing a head turning vocal range and rare vibrancy. The London UK born and bred singer-songwriter takes inspiration from an eclectic melting pot of fellow artists including Prince, Young Fathers, Oasis and Naughty By Nature. Not someone to be easily put in a box, you can expect a diverse showcase of Ashe’s talent to be rolled out this year.
Keep a close eye on his as he reveals more over the coming months.
The track will be available on all digital platforms as well as a download option from the Monotreme Records webshop:
