Sam Isacc releases debut album 'Bears' - May 2009
Sam Isaac has announced the release of his self-released debut album Bears on May 11 2009, available through CD and download. The album release follows on from Sam's last single 'Come Back Home Tonight' and his special beat-fantastic remix ep, released at the end of last year, which includes three remixes of 'Sticker Star and Tape' from electo-acoustic wizard James Yuill, folk-disco man Rod Thomas, and Steve Brown.
The album recording process was a surreally-fraught one, in which Sam became seriously ill with a disease caught from a mackerel and normally exclusive only to fish. Sam is now back to health and his debut album, Bears, is finally ready.
Recorded in London with Dan Swift (Aqualung, Art Brut) and featuring players from the Royal College of Music, the Hoosiers' horn section, and Sam's own band (who include Sophie Galpin from My First Tooth), Bears swings from earnest, hopeful love songs like 'Annie', to rousing numbers such as 'Fire Fire', which had 3,000 people singing along at Latitude.
Sam has already proved himself a mainstay at radio with plays from Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Colin Murray and Rob Da Bank, and was names "Hottest Record in The World" on the Zane Lowe show. Further support has come from John Kennedy and Jon Hillcock at XFM. During 2008, Sam played a plethora of festivals including V Festival, Big Chill, Latitude and Secret Garden Party; and in October he went on a mammoth, three-week, full-band tour of the UK in 'Florence', his very own ex-postal van. Sam has also recently returned from success shows at SXSW and New York and will be touring in the UK through April and May.
