Sam Tudor

Sam Tudor is an individual person, but also a project involving a large group of friends across Canada. The underpinnings of the songs are genre-less; jazz players join forces with Eno inspired beats while acoustic guitars meet distorted synths. What unifies the project is Tudor’s distinct voice: a sandy, melancholic narrator, leaning in close with confessional and cathartic writing. The band’s live show is a communal affair, moving from hushed tones to bombastic walls of sound and back again. The Georgia Straight calls the band “a gem, with a penchant for everything left field” while VICE Magazine describes the project as  “a darkened digital space… embellished with jazz, baroque, and electronic touches”. Their new album, Two Half Words, was released in May 2021.
