It's easy to list the achievements of musician Sam Sparro. His platinum break-out hit, Black & Gold charted top 20 in 14 countries and earned him a Grammy Nomination. His self titled album debuted top 5 in the UK and earned Gold certification and further praise from the world's media. He has collaborated with Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson, DJ Mason & DMC, remixed Kimbra, OK Go and Sky Ferriera and has written songs for the likes of Adam Lambert and Natasha Beddingfield. There are the celebrated live shows and sets at all the biggest festivals, and prestigious MTV and ARIA nominations in his native Australia (and all before the age of 29) What's more difficult, is trying to define Sam Sparro - the Artist, but this is what makes him so interesting. Part soul crooner, part pop star with an ever-morphing, chameleon-like quality, Sam coasts a fine line between disarmingly earnest and a chic, credible cool.
