Enigmatic South London producer-singer Sampha has been building up a huge library of astonishing collaborative work, from SBTRKT and Jessie Ware to Kanye and Solange, making him an under-appreciated influence in contemporary, transatlantic R&B. His own solo work since 2009 has been a slow and tantalising drip-feed; recent singles Timmy’s Prayer and Blood On Me only raise the bar of expectation for his debut album’s release in 2017. With a gorgeous, plaintive voice and a faultless ear for tight production, Sampha’s patience and sensitivity come through in everything he touches. A short UK tour in March follows the new album: this show at the O2 Institute is an opportunity to be among the first crowds hearing his new material live.
Sun 26 Mar 7pm at O2 Institute, 78 High Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 6DY, £20.50 ticketweb.co.uk
