Sam Weber: Blackout
The hotly-tipped BC singer/songwriter releases a new album today. This cut showcases his warm embrace of a voice to fine effect.

Sam Weber - Blackout (Sonic Unyon). This is the the second single off the BC singer-songwriter's third full-length, Everything Comes True, out today (Oct. 25).
It is a track that shows why he is being tipped as an artist to watch closely. Weber has a warm embrace of a voice, and the tender and candid sentments of the song are bolstered by ace accompaniment and an effective lyric video. Jackson Browne would be an apt reference pont.
In a label press release, Weber explains that "Blackout is a break-up song about feeling divided - between doing what feels right to me or what’s comfortable for someone else. It’s about watching someone try and change who they are to make you happy. It’s about trying to have a deeper understanding of relationships and investing more – and about being afraid in relationships too."
Everything Comes True was recorded in LA with producer Tyler Chester, and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Gavin Lurssen.
Weber heads out on a Western Canadian tour soon with labelmate Terra Lightfoot, followed by shows in Toronto and Hamilton.
