Sam Tompkins has dropped his new EP, ‘Who Do You Pray To?’
The collection comes along with new track, ‘My Brother’, of which Sam explains: “‘My Brother is really special to me. I love it so much. The origin of it is actually a sad but lovely story. When I was about 18, we lost our Nana and at the funeral we had to read the eulogy. I got about 6 words in before being in floods of tears, my brother read the rest and was so strong. Flash forward to last year when my Papa (Grandpa) passed away and I decided to do the eulogy. Sadly because of covid my brother couldn’t make it as he was working away in Canada. This time I got the whole way through it and I remember getting the text from my brother who watched it through a live stream that I smashed it and I felt so proud because the only way I was able to do it was knowing I was the exact age my brother had stepped up and been brave 5 years prior.”
With a whole gang of celebrity fans, and a bit of a buzz on TikTok, Sam is set to hit the road with a show at Kentish Town Forum on 8th April.
