hmv's Next Big Thing... #31 Sample Answer

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising trobadour Sample Answer...


Who Is He?

Sample Answer is singer Maurice O’Connor, he's 20 years old and has been gigging for a little while. He's just unveiled his debut EP Good Boy, which he created with producer Hugh Fothergill, the man who helped the likes of Ed Sheeran and Bipolar Sunshine out in their early years. 


Who Does He Sound Like?

This is gentle lilting folk with a spiky underbelly. Imagine Bob Dylan and Jay-Z meshed together with a dollop of Massive Attack on top, you're about halfway there...


Why Should I Be Excited?

He writes gentle ditties, which are full of wit and spark, you always need more of those in your life...


Can I Hear Something?

Sure. His new EP 'Good Boy' is out now and is available to purchase here. You can also hear the title track below.
