Inspired by the vocal greats of jazz and Motown discovered in her father and grand father’s record collections, as a singer-songwriter, she borrows flavours from gospel, jazz and R&B, as well as taking influence from the soul and indie pop of contemporary artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Celeste and mystery collective, Sault.

Coined as Etta James meets Kate Tempest, her vocal delivery holds the possibility for both a depth and effortless soaring and her words burn with a truth that is so needed in the cultural moment we find ourselves in. Backed by her new band of ‘exceptionally talented’ musicians, Nitelife Online conclude that they ‘can well imagine Samantha shooting up to the top with an alarming speed –eyes peeled for this girl!’

Having founded all-female arts collective, Girls, Girls, Girls, with Eliza Shaddad and Beth Rowley, collaborating with female artists and venues all over the country including at  London’s Union Chapel, she was honoured to perform in the Museum of London’s ‘Votes for Women’ exhibition in 2018 and as a speaker & broadcaster also, is equally excited be hosting a series of performances in collaboration with Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival Tonic sessions at Bristol Beacon in 2022. 

‘Weaving poetry, spoken word and beautiful lyricism through her songs, Samantha Lindo presents some very raw and real issues about love, life and the human condition. NITELIFE
