It's All Rocknroll In Sam Himself's Never Let Me Go LP
Sam Himself, King of Tears, Fondue Westerner, Mr. Rocknroll... multi-talented Sam Koechlin goes by many names, so is the power of his huge, emotionally intelligent indie-rock sound.
Sam made his debut in 2021 with "Power Ballads" and over the years since then he's been contending with a pandemic, moving back to Switzerland, falling in love, stopping and then starting touring, and writing a whole other album. The result is his sophomore record "Never Let Me Go", the ten-track LP in collaboration with longtime producer Daniel Schlett (Iggy Pop; The War on Drugs) and mastering engineer Greg Calbi (David Bowie; Bruce Springsteen), featuring Chris Egan (Solange; Blood Orange) on drums and Josh "JD" Werner (Ghostface Killah; CocoRosie) on bass.
The album features singles Mr. Rocknroll, Golden Days, Never Let Me Go and Heartland which all share indie-rock and alternative elements that celebrates the promise of a reopened world whose studios, stages and dance floors we get to share again at long last.
