Short bio: 

Sam Smith was born May 19, 1992 in London, England. His big break came in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. His subsequent feature—on Naughty Boy's "La La La"—earned him his first number 1 single in May 2013.

In December 2013, he was nominated for the 2014 BRIT Critics' Choice Award and the BBC's Sound of 2014 poll, both of which he won. He released his debut studio album, "In the Lonely Hour," in May 2014 on Capitol Records. The lead single, "Lay Me Down", was released prior to "La La La". The second single was "Money on My Mind" which became his second number one single in the UK.

The album's third single, "Stay with Me", was an international success, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart and number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, while the fourth single "I'm Not the Only One" reached the top five in both countries. Fifth single "Like I Can" reached number nine in the UK.

In December 2014, Smith was nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, "Stay with Me" for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and In the Lonely Hour for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.

I wish Sam would differentiate himself from the mainstream a little and add some real horns to add another layer of richness to his sound. Too many talented artist buy into the synthesized quick to produce music. Yeah production cost goes up a bit but it is so worth it.

Thank you Sam , every song you write is part of the choices I make , been going through hell I a 10yr relationship filled with lies and deceit. Your songs give me new life even in this time , listening to "writings on the wall" and it made me feel so strong , if that makes sense , to me the song has so many emotions, he has emotionally destroyed me , but your music helps me piece myself together, thank you and may u be blessed 20 lifetimes, Chris ...

I do not know if this will find you Sam but I want you to know I admire your strength and bravery. It is not easy in this world to always expose yourself and be who you are but please do not let others define your value. And if you do please know there are those who think you rock.

Sam, I cannot say how thrilled to be fan of yours. I saw you in New Orleans last year (2018) and now hearing this new song "Dancing with a Stranger" has only confirmed just how talented you are. I thank you for your many talents and cannot wait to see you again to perform. You have a gift - embrace it and always remember, that we, your fans support you!
Love Dani Burleigh from New Orleans
