In 2011, she founded Girl, Girls, Girls, an all-female arts collective in London, partnering with UK charity the Orchid Project to put a global end to female genital cutting (FGC) with fellow singer-songwriter friend Eliza Shaddad. Samantha opened the last Girls Girls Girls at London’s Union Chapel with a collaborative performance of ‘Gateway’, the title track of her forthcoming debut.
Her latest single ‘Butterflies’, one of the earliest penned songs on the album, was recently released at a secret Sofar Sounds gig supporting British recording artist, James Morrison, as part of Amnesty International’s ‘Give a Home’ campaign in solidarity with the world’s refugees.
Produced by Abbey Road’s Dan Cole, she wrote and recorded the album at Wick Court, a 16th century stately home in the country where she was part of a community of musicians and artists. .
