Sam Brittain returns to Australia this summer for a whirlwind tour having spent the last 6 months touring Europe, The UK and Ireland off the back of his 2016 full length release ‘Signal Lights”.
The second single ‘Slainte’ from the album and coinciding short film ‘Slainte mo chara” was well received reaching over 22,000 views on Facebook within its first week, the success all attributed to a simple and effective format…busking on the street.

No stranger to the big stage having toured with the likes of Passenger, Matt Corby, The Corona’s & Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls) Sam’s unique blend of Alternative Country/Folk is powerful, raw and emotive. A style honed on the road and perfected on the stage Sam’s vocal range and song writing screams decades of experience beyond what would be expected from the 26-year-old troubadour.
As well as performing solo, in duo mode and with his signature full band punters can expect a huge line up of support acts & special guests from all over the world in what is sure to be a memorable night of music.
“Lyrically and musically, Sam will throw you into a pit of despair and then wrench you out and hand you a bunch of flowers, all within the space of two minutes. The maturity of his songs isn’t easily ignored and the conviction of his voice can’t be overlooked.” – The AU Review
“The Gov filled with hundreds of locals ready to hear some of the best of what SA has to offer. The cold Adelaide night meant the fire was lit and this only added to the alternative country/ folk feel of the evening. The vibe is something akin to that of country music festival, Rock the Mount. But it was ‘Slainte’, performed with support act, Irishman B.R. Dalton, which stole the show.” – Scenester | Signal Lights Tour 2016
“There is so much talent floating around Adelaide these days. At times during Saturday evening at The Gov, I quite honestly felt as if I was one of those blessed souls that just happened to be at The Cavern Club in 1961 when Epstein saw The Beatles for the first time.” – Josh Champion (AU Review) | Signal Lights Tour 2016
