Singer-Songwriter Samm Henshaw celebrates the 1st anniversary of his debut album ‘Untidy Soul’
and offers his supporters an intimate insight into the creative process and the global tour that
Filmed by Dan Robinson, we see Samm building a DIY studio during covid so he could
complete the project with his producer and close friend Josh Grant. At one point, Samm thought this
album would never come out whilst stuck in a major label deal that did not serve him in any way.
Finally cutting ties in 2019, the independence and separation set Samm free, and he created his
proudest body of work to date.
‘Untidy Soul’ was a project that saw Samm gain global recognition for his limitless abilities as a
musician, and the outcome was a timeless album bursting with love and soul. A tipping point came for
him came pre-release when he got to perform on James Corden’s late show, and he finally started to
understand just how far this album could truly go. The incredible success of Untidy Soul led to a
global tour which kicked off with a sold-out Shepherd Bush Empire show and took him across the
US and to Asia. Stopping off in DC, LA & NY, Samm was joined on stage by the likes of Ivan
Brasstracks and Tobi Nwigwe whilst travelling with his close-knit band. Samm’s date in Tokyo was
another career-defining moment, and we get to see him speak candidly about his touring journey and
growth as an artist.
When talking about his shows, Samm states: “The Untidy tour was a moment for me to be able to embrace the mess of life and who we are, but to be able to know that there is hope and change and leave all your concerns, worries, insecurities and anxieties outside for a moment and being able to be in that room.”
The ‘Untidy Soul’ accolades included; 4* reviews from NME & The Guardian, NPR Best albums of
2022, it debuted in the Top 30 R&B albums in Billboard, and VIBE voted it the Best 25 R&B album for
2022, to name just a few.
