POPEI presents free live music from talented singer-songwriters every Sunday. Augustus 23th, it is time for Sam Times. He will play a number of sets between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in an intimate setting, when the weather is good on the sunny terrace, otherwise in the cosy café.
Sam Times is an Eindhoven based singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist. Having gathered lots of inspiration from artists like Ben Howard and Arctic Monkeys as well as older bands like Pixies and The Velvet Underground, Times has developed a very distinct style. Times’ music is difficult to categorize into a specific genre.
At age eighteen, Times has been active as a singer-songwriter for about three years and since a year Times has found himself a group of young musicians to help him perform. He recently released his debut EP What’s Going On. Sam Times uses elements of alt-rock, jazz and the classic pop ballad. Despite making use of divergent styles and genres Times’ work remains recognizable through the use of his deeply philosophical and narrative lyrics and emotional vocals.
