New Music: Samm Henshaw – Redemption

Redemption1 cover

Emerging UK soul singer Samm Henshaw first captivated our ears with an acoustic performance of his single “Only Wanna Be With You.” That was easily enough to make our must-watch list, but now he is back and adds fuel to the fire with another soul-stirring gem, “Redemption.”

Full of solemn power, Samm evokes seasoned meaning over a stripped-down guitar and brassy harmonica, while being beautifully supported by his backing vocalists.

“Oh good lord, good lord, said I can’t keep it up / Said now good lord, good lord, I need you to fill my cup / Said I’m searching for redemption, redemption for my weary soul,” he wails.

“Redemption” is the second release off Samm’s anticipated debut EP ‘The Sound Experiment,’ due out July 13.

Video: Stacy Barthe – War IV Love


R&B songstress and accomplished songwriter Stacy Barthe is prepping for the release of her debut album BEcoming, and in doing so she has returned with a music video for the previously released song “War IV Love.”

Putting everything on the line for a blissful romance Stacy sings, “I would suffer war if it meant victory was our love.” And she brings her vision of victory to life in the new visual.

“I’m basically playing a voodoo priestess presiding over a marriage. I pretty much have suffered a war my entire life, me battling myself and the world, and then to end up with somebody that just absolutely adores you — I would suffer a war if it meant victory,” she told The FADER. “I’m trying to get to the better place.”

Stacy’s BEcoming is executive produced by John Legend and due out later this Spring via Motown Records.
