3 things to know about AA
1. Alfred Abel is the musical pseudonym for London based musician & songwriter Sam Smith. 2. All music is recorded independantly. 3. The project is built on word of mouth promotion.

Sam was born in a small village in the Midlands. At the age of 19 he moved down to Cornwall, before moving to London via Bristol all the while developing his stories and distinctive voice. Every song dances between biography and fiction. Raindancer is available from 19 September.

A while ago I did a series of short videos of covers that I was really into. Over the next few weeks I’m going to start that up again but this time with a few friends. First one - Paul Simon, The Boxer.

Tune of the day - Spencer Davis, you got the cool.
