Sam Tompkins Returns With ‘See Me’

It's about finding light amid the darkness...

UK songwriter Sam Tompkins has shared his new single ‘See Me’.

The singer earned his stripes on the streets of Brighton, busking to passers-by. Music plays an intimate role in his life, a place where his deepest, truest feelings can be uncovered.

Take new single ‘See Me’. A plea from the heart, it finds Sam Tompkins at his boldest, and most open – a song about mental health, self-worth, and bad relationships, it finds the songwriter asking to be seen, for his feelings to have value.

Now a key part of his work, ‘See Me’ feels like an important song within his life as a whole. Sam comments:

“It’s like I’d needed to write it my whole life. I’m glad I have now, and hoping others can now resonate with it.”

Looking back on the song’s origins, ‘See Me’ comes from a self-admitted “dark time” in his life. After putting some work in, and speaking to a life coach, he emerged refreshed, and with the song lingering at the back of his mind.

He comments…

“This song stems back to last year in a pretty dark time in my life. I had a conversation with my life coach about how insecure I was becoming, constantly fearing how I was being perceived by others. After a long emotional conversation, we had worked out and pinpointed a pretty sad moment from when I was a kid at school and how I have carried it ever since. So much so that I had internalised that comment and begun to believe it.”
