Australian-born Los Angeleno, Sam Sparro came to London to realise his dream of pop-stardom. It was in the UK capital he bagged a deal with Island Records with whom he released his acclaimed eponymous debut in 2008. Sam Sparro featured the hit singles ‘Black and Gold’ and ’21st Century Life’ which spurred him into the disco spotlight around the world. It boasted a stellar producer line-up including Paul Epworth, Jesse Rogg, Eg White, Richard X and Pete Hofmann. Musikbox was used for mixing and programming in early 2008.
The album enjoyed a strong UK top 10 presence on release, and went on to sell over 100,000 UK copies in 2008 alone. Sam’s second album is due for release in August 2009.
