2013 saw the release of One For The Road, Sam Sallon’s debut album. A genuine labour of love, it took Sam and his producer David Watson over two years, working strange hours on downtime out of several studios, to create this record of twelve songs and an orchestral afterword.
Sam Sallon was born in London and raised mostly in Manchester as the fourth child of eight. He started writing songs while still at school and played throughout his teens around Manchester at venues like Night and Day, Band On The Wall and the Roadhouse.
Outside the studio, Sam has spent the last few years perfecting his delivery and finding fans on tour with a diverse set of homegrown and international talents including Paul Kelly, Pete Doherty, Mark Fry, Dot Allison, Lucy Rose, Johnny Flynn, Son of Dave, Fionn Regan, Nick Harper, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Kami Thompson, Johnny Bramwell, Lyle Lovett, Nouvelle Vague, Paul Wassif and the Neil Cowley Trio. Sam recently completed his second UK radio tour.
One For The Road follows on the heels of Kathy’s Song EP (Indigo-Octagon 2013), featuring Sam’s distinctive take on Paul Simon’s classic.
