Friday 3rd November, 8pm
Samantics is a livewire rap-poet and musician whose lyrical comedy takes the audience a personal stroll around his world view.
A talented multi-instrumentalist, Samantics takes listeners on a musical odyssey using ukulele, piano, beats, bass, electronics and more, all created and controlled via a loop station and sampler.
His live shows are a frantic, funny, meaningful and thrilling experience; skirting the line between slam poet, social commentator and comedian. It’s not quite hip-hop, but it’s not quite not. Samantics is an unmissable solo artist bound to spike your energy levels.
“A really clever fella… funny, entertaining, engaging and moving.” Steve Lamacq/Radio 6
Samantics grew up listening to punk bands practice in his dad’s living room, giving him the opportunity to experience the thrill and uppercut of live music while he sat and did his homework. However, being a more reserved, and tirelessly shy young lad back then, his passion really began with words; words and poetry that helped explain what he couldn’t always say. It wasn’t until years later that he discovered these words could be lyrics, and these lyrics could be life saving.
