More Info

Following a prolific stint of creativity, Sam Beste, aka The Vernon Spring, is set to release his mesmerising debut album A Plane Over Woods. Made in the light of losing his father in 2019, and completed during the COVID-19 lockdown, the album explores new territory for The Vernon Spring, incorporating subtle electronic textures of voices, samples and vinyl crackle loops into his already established beautifully restrained muted piano sound-world. The album was entirely written, produced and recorded by Sam in his London studio.

Sam's work as a producer, performer and composer covers a multitude of styles and roles. He has worked with Amy Winehouse, Kano, Kindness, Blood Orange and many more, produced virtuosic London string duo Fran & Flora and sat in as a hang player for 

Portico Quartet. He has released music on Matthew Herbert's label Accidental Records, composed for film and was commissioned by Radio 3's Nick Luscombe for original work. Curated with Hejira, his TRAUM events in central London attracted performances from Micachu & The Shapes, The Invisible, Kwabs, Oliver Coates, Gwilym Gold, Eska and more. Despite his young age, Sam's musical CV rivals many seasoned pros'.

Recent work has seen Sam writing, producing and performing on songs for Ghostpoet, Abimaro, Joy Crookes, Beth Orton and Loyle Carner.
