As stated in his recent interview with ilymag, Sampha’s progress for processing his feelings is something a lot of people could use for own good; worth the angst and downside. “Sometimes to love is to let go,” Sampha explained in his interview. “I challenge myself to dig, but feel comfortable in other emotions. We can hear the comfort in songs like “Blood on Me” and “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano.” He performs both of these tracks and more on NPR’s Tiny Desk series.

Growing up in South London, Sampha reflects on the time he spent in his mother’s home and how the piano and himself became so intimate over time.
