Sam Tompkins was born and raised in the town of Eastbourne where he found himself being influenced from an early age by artists ranging from Justin Timberlake to Drake. These artists were how Tompkins found his voice, singing throughout the house, echoing whatever his sister would be playing on any given day.
The young artist’s musical journey began in 2017 where he picked up steam with a few covers that gained quite a bit of recognition. Eventually, his cover of Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You” won him an MTV contest for “Cover of the Month,” thrusting him into a worldwide spotlight.
In the same year, the Eastbourne native officially devoted himself to wholeheartedly pursuing his music career. Tompkins released his debut EP, Coloured Emotions. The EP arrived as a dive into the blend of R&B, contemporary pop, hip hop, and even electronic that Tompkins had been looking to perfect. With impressive vocals and innovative production, this first endeavour showed promise for the up-and-coming artist.
Currently, Tompkins is signed to Universal Island Records and finds himself having wrapped up a tour with Maverick Sabre. At the same time, now more than ever, the wheels are spinning for the 22-year-old to create an even greater buzz in the industry. It is his part due to the release of his most recent EP, From My Sleeve to the World, which has started to catch the eyes of fans the world over.
