sam smith. sam friggin smith. can not even begin to tell you how officially obsessed i have become with his music!!! i was alerted to sam smith a few weeks ago from my very musically inclined cousin/sister/best friend 🙂 he is a 20-something british crooner who started singing as a child and is steadily making his way up the US charts – take a listen for yourself…

that voice. those eyes. that hair! my goodness. after falling in love with sam smith, i researched him to see what he is all about. first of all , can i just say how gangsta sam smiths mom is? in 2009 Kate Cassidy was working as a banker making a very comfortable salary when she was let go for “spending too much time promoting her sons music career”. you know what Kate did? she sued her former employee and WON! you go mom! secondly, he is an openly gay man and i totally 100% respect him for – support gay rights ya’ll!!! sam smith cites amy winehouse, beyonce, whitney houston, and a few other greats as his musical influence – that pretty much means we can be BFFs because we have similar taste… will you be my bff sam smith?


his soulful voice is showcased beautifully in his recently released debut album, In The Lonely Hour, and fills a hole in my heart that opened when amy winehouse left this world, RIP. and not for nothing, he kills any guest spot he lends his vocals to like Disclosures “Latch”…

i mean look at this face! i still can not believe that insanely smooth and decadent voice comes from this man, which to me is very reminiscent to mr. brian mcknight.


basically what i am trying to say is, sam smith made me believe that there are still true, talented music artists left in this world! he is a rising star in the US, with much more to come – hope you enjoy his music as much as I do! you can more about Sam Smith here —-> Sam Smith World and dont forget to tell me what you think!

cheerio 🙂
