Hey! Manchester presents Will Samson

Please note this is an 18+ event

In his over 10 years of releasing records, the music of Will Samson has always been underpinned with ambient characteristics and qualities. Though often led by his tender voice, Samson’s work is deeply textural, always offering as much space for instrumental excursions as the lyrical narratives he layers above them. Until now, Will has considered his solely-ambient work more as side-projects, contemplative digressions from his more defined musical path.


Having previously released an EP via 12k back in 2016, Samson returns to Taylor Deupree’s experimental label to fully embrace the genre with the release of the Harp Swells LP – his first full-length ambient album.
‘Samson’s meditative mix of folk and electronica has an almost spiritual dimension’ – UNCUT

‘As a purveyor of music that ventures through complex sound layers and texturally rich tones, it’s obvious why we are fans of his’ – i-D

‘Intricacy and tenderness recalling kindred spirits such as Nils Frahm and Sufjan Stevens‘ – The Sunday Times
