about

儚い歌声、強い存在感−ヒマラヤ山脈を経る長い放浪の旅を続けたコスモポリタン、Will Samsonが歌うデビューアルバム。穏やかでシンプル、靄に浮かぶようなサウンドをバックに、ゆったりと溶け出すような歌声はいつしか聖性を帯び、聴く者の胸を打つ。聴きこむうちにググッと感情がこみ上げてきてしまう、音楽の人生への愛に満ちた究極の一枚です。

PLOP
Will Samson was born in England, raised in Australia, currently residing in Berlin, Germany. His grandmother was born in Chile (to a Jewish mother) and grandfather was born in India (to an Italian father) which describes his multi-national background and an evoking desire to search for his identity. At the age of 19, he takes a long journey through the parts of Asia and the Himalayas. Trekking and watching the sunrise from behind the holy mountain... all those experiences has inspired him heavily to return to England and start his music career. "Hello Friends, Goodbye Friends" is his breathtaking debut album full of these beautiful and desolate moments, just as life can be described as a travel. Over the myriads of haunting and echoing guitar and piano sounds, he whispers and sings wistfully as if singing from high above the clouds leaving us not with desperation but with a perfect peaceful impression.
