Sam is releasing his highly anticipated second solo album, Unearth Repeat, on Hudson Records in March 2020, with extensive live dates in May with a four piece Sam Sweeney Band and a follow up album tour in Nov/Dec (23rd – 6th).
Unearth Repeat celebrates a new direction, not only for Sam but for English music. His new band are injecting into the English tradition something that has never been heard before. The music has the groove and swagger of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes. This is Sam making music on his own terms, with a massive sound and a stellar line up of his favourite musicians: the acoustic and electric guitars of Jack Rutter and Louis Campbell and the double bass of Ben Nicholls.
