Watch Sampha's Mesmerizing Tiny Desk Concert
The mesmerizing set features Sampha, who recently released his album Process, tickling the ivories of both a keyboard and piano while performing "Plastic 100°C", "(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano" and "Blood On Me."
Delivering hauntingly beautiful lyrics like, "But if you don't like what you see, silhouettes inside of dreams/ And I'm melting from the light," Sampha's rousing set hits right in the chest, especially "(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano" -- which was inspired by his mother, who passed away in 2015.
“I wanted to be ready to release an album -- emotionally, psychologically,” he told Billboard in February about Process. “I wasn’t quite ready -- writing a record and dealing with being out in the world, that increased level of attention upon me ... It’s always hard to live with losses.”
