British singer-songwriter, Sam Smith has been on my radar for awhile now so its about time I work up a proper introduction post for the rising star. Already known for his guest slot on one of 2012’s biggest tracks, Disclosure’s “Latch,” the former Stortford school pupil is back at the top of the charts again with his feature on Naughty Boy’s #1 smash single “La La La,” which is currently the fastest selling UK single of the year. At just 21-years-old, there’s no doubt Sam is set for big things in 2013. His first solo single, “Lay Me Down,” produced by Disclosure sees the production duo take a break from their usual garage dance vibe to produce a little downbeat ballad. It’s a sensitive and effortless track full of promise – just listen to the acoustic version below, your heart will melt. Sam‘s melodic skills are just out of this world and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us for the rest of the year. GET FAMILIAR NOW!
