Reliably informed

Who are you? 
My name is Sam Thomas 

What is it you do?
I am a songwriter/musician/rhythmical lyricist and director of my own music management and events company 

How long have you been doing it?
I’ve been into music ever since I was 15. In and out of bands and different projects with everything from solo folk acoustic to full on heavy mental screamo.

What inspires you?
It’s hard to put my finger on it but pretty much just anything that happens in life… good or bad… it’s all relevant 

Tell us about your music.
I wanted to find a way to really express myself in the best way possible and by rapping I feel I can speak in the most honest way and still be able to create good music. 

This time last year I’d never even rapped on stage but the feeling to me now is exhilarating , I get such a sense of achievement when I write, record and perform so I had to put a collection of songs out and I honestly think its some of my best work to date

What have you got coming up in the future?
After Mr Sunshine drops on 25th, I’ll be releasing my mixtape “Progress” off the back of that with nine tracks; all different styles but all raps. After that, the plan is to drop an acoustic mixtape, beat tape and finally an album

Where can people find you
