SPB exclusive: Joe Sampson's Chansons de Parade

SPB exclusive: Joe Sampson's Chansons de Parade

artwork by Ravi Zupa

Out on December 1, Scene Point Blank is proud to debut the new Chansons de Parade from Colorado singer-songwriter Joe Sampson.

With haunting and playful lyricism and his notable baritone delivery, the nine song album is equally melodic, gentle, and restrained with a dark tinge. The album is being released on Hidden Shoal.

Sampson plays at The Ubisububi Room in Denver on Dec. 1.
