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

By Kerry Doole

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.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
