Adelaide songster Sam Brittain brings his nostalgic folk artistry across Australia this month, promoting his newest album, ‘Signal Lights.’ Having played with the likes of Passenger and Matt Corby, Brittain is poised to take his soulful melodies to the next level.
The single Stab In The Dark arcs dramatically from a sparse, delicate intro, to a sprawling, rallying cadence, and inspires a feeling of hope in spite of circumstance. The lyrics summarise a coming of age, prompted by travel, grief, and ‘a lethal dose of reality’. “I was beginning to see the real sacrifices that have to be made as a touring artist in order to be successful. The loved ones you leave behind. Losing a dear friend of mine a few months prior to a stroke was a shotgun blast to the heart… It was a blatant reminder that none of us are invincible and you never know when your time is up.”
