about

Samantha Horwill follows her debut album with the release of the intimate and affirmative ‘A little piece of me’

‘A little piece of me’, the second single to be taken from 2012’s ‘Caught in the light’, is the equally beautiful follow up to lead single ‘Do you remember?’ Recorded at one of the best studios in the world, Real World Studios, and mixed with a Nashville flavour by of Mark Nevers (Lambchop), this is another in a collection of songs that captures the voice of a unique singer and songwriter.

The album’s most intimate composition, ‘A little piece of me’ finds its strength in a simple piano and a compellingly restrained vocal; “Samantha’s distinctive voice [is] warm, delicate and effortlessly skilled” (Amy's Musical Express). Its uplifting refrain offers a vulnerable and raw meditation on the power of expression within us all that can find its release in the beauty of the everyday.

lyrics

Pallour of grey is where I begin,
then the setting sun rushes to colour me in.
There’s a little piece of you,
there’s a little piece of me that needs to explode.

Like a fallen star in an empty dream in a sacred place for you and me. Like a flower born when the sun is high, so beautiful it makes me cry. Exploding.

Broken is somewhere innocence hides.
Kaleidoscope pictures, a dawn on the rise.
There’s a little piece of you,
there’s a little piece of me,
there’s a little piece of everyone that needs to explode.

Like a fallen star in an empty dream in a sacred place for you and me. Like a flower born when the sun is high, so beautiful it makes me cry. Exploding.
