I thought I would take the opportunity to share an update with everyone. I am currently recording my debut album Wilderness and will be releasing it through Bandcamp on January 11th.

The record is written and produced entirely by myself and I am recording the full ten tracks in a small, tenement flat in Edinburgh; lo-fi epitomised! Wilderness is one of three full-length albums I am recording over the next two years and releasing on my own label, Samuel Escher Recordings Ltd.

For now, I will leave you with the artwork from the upcoming album, drawn by Melanie Caple (melaniecaple.com) ; a wonderfully talented Australian artist who puts into pictures what I can only say with words.


I am a fiercely independent poet and songwriter. The ownership of my work is paramount to me as an artist and with the advances in blockchain technology, we can, unlike ever before, truly protect our work and identity.

Whilst in the nascent stages of development, I truly believe that the po.et project is the future of publishing and, to that end, have opted to start publishing my poetry through the network. You can find out more about the po.et project by following the link in the logo.

Own your creativity.



Samuel will be playing in the semi-final of the Listen Up Songwriting Competition in Edinburgh, Scotland on August 30th. Come down, listen to some original music and support a great cause. Follow link in the photo for tickets! See you there!

Happy to announce that I’ve been selected for the Top 100 in the Listen Up Music songwriting festival 2018. Stay tuned for more info! You can check out their website here – let’s keep talking about mental health.


So I have been hard at work designing some merchandise! Would love some feedback on the design – what would you like to see it on?! Let me know!


The Samuel Escher EP is available to pre-order now exclusively  from my Bandcamp – here.

The debut EP, featuring six tracks from the upcoming Wilderness album will be released June 8th 2018, along with the single Grain. More updates coming soon!

My current single Thorn is available for free download exclusively on Bandcamp.com – help yourself to a copy and spread the word!

Get down to the Underground Live @Teviot House for a night of live music. I’ll be supporting Sleepless Giants. It stands to be a great night. Free entry – doors at 2100.
