BandPopSinger/Songwriter

My name is Samuel, a 30 year old emerging singer/songwriter and a UKSC double semi finalist 2008 . I write in an acoustic style however all my songs can be adapted for placement with other artists genres e.g. R and B, country, pop. Songs range from laid back contemplative to positive and uplifting.

Biography

I originally started writing for songs for school drama productions at age 14, since then I developed my style into acoustic based singer/songwriter music. I have recently entered the UK songwriting contest and two songs reached semi final stages and I recieved local press publications and a BBC radio interview and song play. My influences vary but stem from such artists as David Ford, Ray Lamontagne, Damien Rice, Bob Dylan, Oasis, Nirvana, James Blunt. I also play percussion in a band called 'Cherry and the orchestra'. We are supporting Nomad Jones on the 12th December in Derbyshire and have also recieved radio play and played at the Acoustic gathering festival in North Yorkshire.

Lyrics

Edge of Life

Written By: Samuel Holmes

Waiting wondering what your doing,
You remembering my face?
I can see you but your blurring now,
soon be vanished without a trace

(Chorus)-
In the meantime I'll be sitting here on the edge of this knife, in the early hours of the morning memories are my life,
In the early hours sun is dawning memories come alive.

Do you still know what I'm thinking?
cos thinking is all I do,
When my mind feels like an ocean,
In a never ending blue,

(Chorus)-
In the mean time, I'll be sitting here on the edge of this knife.
In the sleepless hours of the morning, memories are my life.
In the early hours of the morning memories come alive.

When your sun just don't wanna shine and you just cant see the moon,
And you feel like, like a flower that just dont wanna bloom,

(Chorus)-
In the meantime I'll be sitting here on the edge of this knife,
In the early hours of the morning , memories are my life, in the early hours the sun is dawning, memories come alive

(middle)-
Once upon a time you consumed my life and now im living here on the eges of a knife, once upon a time you consumed my life and know Im living here on the edges of a life

(chorus)
In themean time Ill be sitting her on the edge of this knife, in the sleeples hours of the morning memories are my life,
in the early hours the sun is dawning memories come alive

Calling Out

Written By: Samuel Holmes

'Calling Out' - Words and Music by Samuel Holmes 2008

You know I missed you while we slept,
Even though your in my arms,
You know I'd Lay here one hundred years,
just to wake and touch your smile

I'm calling out while I watch you sleep I'm calling out
I'm calling out while I watch you sleep I'm calling out
I'm calling out, you know I'm in too deep
I'm calling out now, you know I'm in too deep.

You know I miss you while we sleep,
Even though you're in my dreams.
You know I'd lay here five hundred years,
Just to wake and touch your skin.

I'm calling out while I watch you sleep I'm calling out
I'm calling out while I watch you sleep I'm calling out
I'm calling out, you know I'm in too deep
I'm calling out now, you know I'm in too deep.

You know you missed me while we slept,
Even though I was just here.
You know I'd Lay here a thousand years,
Just to wake and kiss your fears away, away.

I'm calling out while I watch you sleep, I'm calling out
I'm calling out while I watch you sleep I'm calling out
I'm calling out, you know I'm in too deep
I'm calling out now, you know I'm in too deep.

Travelling

Written By: Samuel Holmes

Travelling - Words and Music by Samuel Holmes 2008

I'm going away from this old life,
travelling away to pastures new.
Going away from this old town,
going to new shores and oceans blue.

I hope you'll come with me my love,
I hope you'll stay with me in love.
I hope you'll come with me my love,
hope you'll stay with me in love.

Driving away from this old town,
riding a wave to something new.
Walking away from what gets me down,
I hope to come back home to you.

I hope you'll come with my my love,
I hope you'll stay with me in love.
I hope you'll come with me my love,
hope you'll stay with me in love.

I throw my bag over my shoulder,
and put away my childish thoughts.
Its ok I'm growing older,
'cos life is the train I thought I caught.

I hope you'll come with my my love,
I hope you'll stay with me in love.
I hope you'll come with me my love,
hope you'll stay with me in love.
