Sam Harvey is a new artist based out of Dallas TX signed to the Independent label Never Satisfied. Sam grew up on Soul, RnB and Funk music for most of his life and has been a singer-songwriter for about 5 years. He is trying to pursue soul music and give it the flavor of this generation’s style. Sam plays guitar as main instrument as well as drums and piano. He says that Stevie Wonder is a big inspiration for him, both lyrically and arrangement-wise.
It’s very easy to instantly compare Sam Harvey to older, legendary soul or R&B singers, or even the new generation of crooners. But the great thing about his latest track “Fight It” produced by Andrew Holder, is that he has found his own groove, his own voice.
Yes, those influences are obviously there, but this track is a straight up Sam Harvey and less of a derivative of other artists. Sam has created a genre of his own that mixes old school grooves with catchy pop hooks and an EDM soundtrack.
The great retro groove and urban edge, together with passion and that smooth high pitched voice comes through in full-force, it is great de-compressing music particularly in today’s stressed-out world, in that it really helps your mind and spirit run free, even if only for a while.
I’ve had this music only for a day and it certainly makes the daily commute a lot more worthwhile. I can honestly say that it was undoubtedly the smoothest music I’ve heard all week. And if that sounds like a small feat, consider that I listen to about 30 different artists each day. That’s over 200 a week!
It’s no question that Sam Harvey is a talented artist, and he displays a charisma and charm that only few young artists come close to matching. Sam’s buttery voice and sincerity is refreshing. Even when he vocally pushes himself to the limit, there is a hint of strain.
NuSoul, retro soul, blue-eyed soul, classic soul – when you get right down to it, truly good R&B and soul music is what it is. It is music that stands the test of time and transcends boundaries, sexes, colors and even age groups. Sam Harvey is living proof of that.
Clearly Sam is an artist that pours his heart and soul into his music. And at the end of the day he doesn’t deliberately copy the music trends that everyone else is doing, but he creates his own sound. Whether he is able to maintain or increase his momentum depends largely on his subsequent releases.
Soul and RNB to my mind work a lot better with albums as opposed to singles, as these are songs that need to create an atmosphere. The more time they have in your player, the more they will soothe your soul. So here’s looking to an album release from Sam Harvey in the near future!”
