Songs relaying stories of love lost and letting go
The fiercely independent and highly regarded troubadour, Sam Buckingham has released a collection of new songs on a brand new EP titled FRAGILE HEART (MGM). The four track EP begins with the Spaghetti Western ‘Hit Me With Your Heart’ and ends with the simple, harmony heavy unrequited long song ‘Only A Fool’.
Touring alongside Lior, Angus & Julia Stone and Washington and the National Folk, Blue Mountains Folk and Peats Ridge Festivals, Sam is an Alberts writer who never shy’s away from hard work on the touring circuit. Sam will be hitting the live scene again with upcoming supports for Karma County and Mia Dyson , Peats Ridge Festival performances and a St. Kilda residency.
All songs were penned by Sam and recorded at Albert Studio’s with Australian producer Paul McKercher (Augie March, Eskimo Joe, Bertie Blackman, Sarah Blasko). ‘Paul and I are a great pair because we had the same vision for how we wanted everything to come out. True to the song, with a lot of heart and no cutting corners. We were in touch for about a year throwing ideas, listening to demos, before we even set foot in the studio’ says Sam.
Her first music clip is for the lead single Hit Me With Your Heart, a spaghetti western inspired song, filmed on the NSW South Coast. Spending 2 nights in an 1840’s slab cottage, Sam along with Sydney husband and wife team Superdocious, created a stunningly intimate and intricate clip.
