North London vocalist Samson Ashe is proud to unveil a special acoustic piano version of his debut single “Too Rough“. An alt-pop gem boasting a classic Rn’B touch, this stripped back version of “Too Rough” is both sweeter and more melancholic than the original, whilst still displaying Samson’s soulful vocal stylings. The track was co-written and produced by P*Nut(Amy Winehouse, Wiley) and mixed by Ben Baptie (Adele, Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga).
Originally released in September via 37 Adventures, “Too Rough” climbed the Hype Machinecharts with support from tastemaker blogs, including The Line of Best Fit, Clash, Crack In the Road, Hilly Dilly and Disco Naivete. With over 100,000 plays on Spotify and counting, “Too Rough” found fans at BBC Radio 1, getting spins from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, and Phil Taggart, as well as BBC Radio 1Xtra support from Mistajam and Jamz Supernova, with further love coming from BBC Radio 2’s Craig Charles.
24 year old Samson Ashe (real name Samson-soul Simbarashe Sacha Ruwangu) grew up listening to whatever his mum was playing in the kitchen (Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley and the “Madonna of South Africa”, Yvonne Chaka Chaka) and whatever his dad was playing in the car (mainly Oasis). With half a lifetime of making music under his belt, “Too Rough” is Samson’s first ever release, with more cuts yet to come.
