Sam Beeton

Sometimes I pay attention to the Record Of The Day, sometimes I'm too busy to click on it or I don't have my headphones handy. Sam Beeton was featured today. His record comes out this summer. I scoured his website and was pleasantly surprised that I like all the songs I heard. I'm assuming he's written the songs. It is hooky well-constructed pop. I'm a sucker for a good pop song. Note my enduring love for Nick Lowe. Nice production. He is 19 and from what I've seen on his videos, he's charming. Just from his blogs I can tell the record label is spending some solid money. A New York photo shoot with the master, Danny Clinch, an LA video shoot with Tony Petrossian and another photo shoot in Malibu.
Talent and charisma: I have a feeling this guy will do very, very well.

  1. I have been fortunate enough to see this guy a couple of times live and he is fabulous, lyrically very clever and far reaching but has the ability to make a song very universal. His songs are very diverse from upbeat and catchy to beautiful ballads to great rock and roll. Lovely chap and multi instrumentalist. I first caught him as a support act and it was awesome. Very much reminiscent of a young Dylan/Simon. I wish him all the best.
