Sam Burchfield, Proxima Parada
Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina, Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. The young songwriter draws on these roots with a deep lyrical honesty and carries the tradition of folk music forward. Burchfield’s upcoming EP, ‘Graveyard Flower’, seeks to reconnect to the Appalachian roots that raised him. In a world of cell phones and internet distractions, this body of work beckons the listener to plant their feet firmly in the soil. Reconnect to the land, reconnect to each other; ‘Graveyard Flower’ is honest music.
Próxima Parada blends soulful melody and hard-hitting rhythm into a sound distinctly their own, groovy and uplifting. Their music makes introspection and human connection sexy again.
Following the success of their last album, Próxima has signed with New-York-City-based record label, AntiFragile, and is releasing their next album, Kind Reminder, on Sept 27th. The first single, Musta Been A Ghost, is available now and gives a taste of what's to come: https://ffm.to/mustabeenaghost
Starting in 2012 as a group of college friends wanting to extend their dynamic to their community in San Luis Obispo, CA, they never dreamed that their passion would reach a global audience, that they’d perform at beautiful historic venues and music festivals, that their songs would earn awards, that their music would soothe and uplift people around the world
