On the heels of his breakout year, Swiss indie rocker Sam Himself - New Yorker by choice, 'Fondue Western' baritone by trade - prepares to release his debut album, Power Ballads.

The Brooklyn-based songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist has been sounding the bell for his first LP with a number of singles.

This full-length debut follows last year's acclaimed Slow Drugs EP, the artist's third which earned him the Swiss National Broadcasting Service's Best Talent Award in 2020 and a nomination in 2021 for a Swiss Music Award, the most prestigious national prize of its kind in Sam's home country.

Power Ballads marks the latest collaboration between Sam and his longtime producer, mixing engineer Daniel Schlett (The War On Drugs; Iggy Pop), as well as mastering legend Greg Calbi (Bruce Springsteen; David Bowie).

Sam plays most of the instruments on Power Ballads himself, with producer Schlett adding sounds, textures and of course his singular mixing style.
