SAM PHAY’s ‘Fool’ is a hypnotically tantalizing stated of elegance and relevance, the Sydney originating artist has successfully offered for our consumption. And in this music video, you get a sense of what he really wanted to show with this heartfelt single, as the stripped down acoustic version, delights our senses.
Debut EP ‘Botanical’ drops this year.
The Writer/producer is a solo artist already accumulating accolades from significant features on Spotify Australia and New Zealand, adding to the momentum that has carried him forward, thus far.
Inspired by his intrinsic curiosity to expand his music in meaningful ways, he’s sought guidance from the many facets and textures that he had at his disposal. One of those was looking deep within the works of Father John Misty’s ‘The Songwriter’, which seemed to elevate an aspect of Sam’s own philosophy and direction for ‘Fool’.
“[‘The Songwriter’] really made me think about how I write, and that it is so often through my own eyes. But, so many of my stories had an entire other person experiencing those things with me. I wanted to write the other side of the story.”
Sam’s announced recently about his upcoming debut EP ‘Botanical’ which is supported with tour dates that include The Gaso Upstairs (Melbourne) and the OAF Gallery Bar (Sydney) in late April.
Sam’s also made a splash on Australia’s Triple J when he’d performed ‘Never Enough’ with Kuren, stamping his creativity and talent. He’s ever moving in his career, as he pushes his boundaries with collaborations with artists like James Crooks’ debut EP Blame My Soul.
Undeniably, Sam is quite a sight to hear and experience – whether in your device of choice or in a live setting. The dynamic protocol of the artist rests firmly and throughout his being. From vocals that burn through, as embers flicker in the fire of desires, through the r&b/pop framed songs and lyricism. They tangle ever so daintily and provocatively, while tangible textures flow from the artist, with full fledged decadence and rapture.
‘Fool’ gets you ‘right there’.
And we dig that. To the stars.
