Sam Lee & Friends
Cafodd Sam Lee ei enwebu ar gyfer Gwobr Gerddoriaeth Mercury am ei albwm gyntaf ‘Ground Of Its Own’ ac ers hynny mae wedi mynd o nerth i nerth. Erbyn hyn mae wedi teithio’r byd ac ym Mawrth 2015 rhyddhaodd ei ail albwm ‘The Fade of Time’ gan dderbyn yr un ganmoliaeth frwd. Unwaith eto, mae’r albwm yn cynnwys caneuon a ddysgwyd yn uniongyrchol oddi wrth y gymuned Sipsiwn a Theithwyr, ac mae’n adlewyrchu siwrnai artistig unigryw Sam.

“This Mercury prize nominee continues to shake up the folk scene with this second album packed with drama and surprise...Surely one of the albums of the year.”
“..this outstanding record deserves a wide hearing…no one is as daring as Lee…there’s never been a record quite like this.”
“The second terrific album by Sam Lee, “The Fade In Time”…Ambitious, eclectic but, ultimately, dedicated to the enduring passions that resonate through this treasure trove of great song…”
“..Warmer, bigger, grander, more imaginative, more varied, more confident, more dramatic, more accessible and generally – from archive samples to boldly left-field arrangements – it’s magnificent. It’s almost taken as read that Lee’s singing is sublime throughout. An album clearly made with enormous thought, love and respect that really deserves to be heard –
“Lee lovingly creates soundscapes in which the dramas he sings unfold and live. At the heart of all this is that voice and sensibility, carrying these frail, powerful stories and melodies – that did almost fade in time – into our era in an entirely modern form’
