Sam’s third solo album, How The City Sings, captures this fervently admired singer, songwriter and guitarist at his most passionate and moving. Recorded live to tape in the studio, the album features twelve songs that are at times affectingly intimate and at others brimming with righteous rage. As the album formed, Sam began to notice these songs were shot through with images and aspects of London. After ten years living in the capital it had become not only the backdrop but a central player in the parts of his life these lyrics detail. Unconsciously, How The City Sings became a way of processing where he was, in every sense. “What’s important to me about the record is that my experiences and what I sing about have become inseparable. I’m writing about my own life but also trying to give voice to the lives of others.” How the City Sings is the most personal album of Sam Carter’s career, and when songs are this heartfelt and true they connect with us all.
