Spotlight Saturday: “Lay Me Down (Acoustic)” by Sam Smith

This song is pure love.

His voice still haunts my dreams since I heard it, for the first time, last Monday night.  Our B4M SXSW Team experienced it first hand at Haven, which probably sounded like heaven.  The entire room was silent, chills running up & down their spines, as Sam Smith’s angelic voice mesmerized all within.  #sxswregrets.  He’s now one of the big successes of the festival. Congratulations Sam!

Expect a similar sound as James Blake (minus the autotune) or even Emeli Sande.  I prefer this raw, acoustic to the enhanced studio version sorry to say.  Pure, unfiltered, perfect sound.  Look how far the m************ is away from the mic!  Holy crap!  (Sorry…inconceivable?)

Sam’s debut EP — Niravana — is out now.  Stream it by clicking the link.  Just warning you, it’s more pop than you’d think.  Mainstream producers.  Let the birdy sing…your mouth will drop.  Speech obliterated.
