Sam Lee & Friends performed at Etnosoi! in 2013, following the release of his debut Ground Of Its Own the previous year. At that point completely unknown to Finnish audiences, he startled and astonished listeners, moving their collective heart to the core. Old Wow is Lee’s third album. This is how he describes the birth of this poetic, profound album, which seems to travel through celestial stardust:
“A buzzard came swooping down and screeched right over my head, then circled above me for some while sounding down onto me. At that moment, I felt the presence and reassurance of this magical power and suddenly at that moment the name appeared, Old Wow, and I’ve held onto it ever since.”
In March 2021, Sam Lee released his debut book called The Nightingale.
