Since making his debut, UK-based artist and songwriter, Sam Handy has delivered stellar hit after stellar hit. His latest single, Waiting For You, produced by Ed Stokes, is an easy-listening and triumphant song, with enough melody, and subtle guitar-work, to brighten anyone's day. It eases you in with the vibrant funk-dripping grooves before the weight of his poetic lyricism grips you.

Sam Handy sets himself apart in the pop charts by keeping his focus on instrumental ability and songwriting, with minimal production, to give his sound an all-consuming live feel. His narratively sniping lyrics and old-school blues pop vocals will be a big hit with any fans of John Mayer, Tom Misch and Harry Styles.

He has already received high praise from Jeff Beck, been lauded by the BBC and won over crowds in his hometown shows.

Sam Handy said:
'Waiting For You' is a laid-back and uplifting song about being the getaway driver for someone special. It is a song about escaping the mundane with someone who brings the best out of us, no matter where we go. I recorded the demo for this song in my very first flat. After my relationship ended with the girl I was living with, I wrote this song in order to process moving on.

Sam Handy started penning songs in 2016; a year later, during a studio session in Newbury, he ran into producer Ed Stokes, who collaborated on his hit song, She Lit Up the Floor; they’ve worked together ever since.

The Reading-based artist released his debut single, Maple Syrup, in 2016; with the successive releases, he moved into a more experimental alt-pop territory; a style and sound that comes naturally to the up and coming singer- songwriter. His next single is in production, and it is due to be released in March 2022.
