SAM BUCKINGHAM – I’M A BIRD

Sweet and evocative, Sam Buckingham makes herself at home in your living room, kitchen or wherever she’s playing.

Travelling around the country, Buckingham is pioneering Australia’s house-concert movement, acoustically innovating the doleful reputation given to girls with guitars of the nineties.

Her new album has an intensity and musical variety that effortlessly moves from a swinging beat into country, a capella and back.

I’m a Bird will make you smile and dance with abandon, and garner a mounting respect for the genius behind it.

Forceful, deep and hopeful, Sam Buckingham reminds us that there are always new possibilities. (SP)
