The Marble Factory, Bristol

Tonight was clearly an important night for Sampha, he’s played the city before but this time around he was sharing music from his debut album Process which is being released at the start of next year. 

With support from the classically-trained cellist and vocalist Kelsey Lu – the pair mesmerised the sold out crowd with focused, intimate performances.

Closing the show Sampha took us back to Without from his Dual EP, at this point the room brimming in admiration for Sampha’s originality and carefully curated sound. His timid smile broke through just before he left the stage.

Check out a selection of images from their sets as well as some pre-show portraits below.
