Born and raised in the London, Iranian/Jewish Samson grew up listening to 90’s and early 2000’s R&B music. This was the sound that eventually inspired him to pursue a career as a R&B/Pop singer and songwriter. Starting to develop his skills as an artist at the age of 16, Samson made his first steps in the music industry as a songwriter. During and after his studies at the University of Leeds, Samson continued to work alongside a wide array of producers and artists under the name, SXMSON.
SXMSON has written and worked with the likes of Laidback Luke, Grammy-nominated Maths Time Joy (Mahalia, Snakehips, Gallant, Sinead Harnett), SAKIMA (Troye Sivan, Tate McRae, R3hab), Gil Lewis (Kelly Clarkson, AJ Mitchell) and One Bit (Noah Cyrus).
With support from Gay Times, BBC Asian Network Radio, HUNGER, Billboard Pride and TalkRADIO, there is a lot more to expect from this talent on the rise.
