London Soul Gets A Dose Of Raspy Realness With Samm Henshaw

His “Autonomy” video effortlessly explores multiple identies.

October 19, 2015

21-year-old Samm Henshaw has one of those voices that leaves an indelible mark. From the effortless glide of his falsetto on tender love song "Better" to his smooth-talking take on a One Direction hit, the south London-based singer's raspy soul vocal is as unpredictably flexible as it is distinctive. "Autonomy," the rousing piano-led single from his debut EP The Sound Experiment, is Henshaw at his most upbeat, and its video is a sweet introduction to his world—or rather, several sweet introductions. As Samm told The FADER over email: "The song is all about having the freedom to do what you want, and the video features multiple versions of myself, living freely." Watch it above.
