After 10 years of relentless touring with Skinny Lister, Sam Brace finally arrived home after his final international run supporting The Interrupters across Canada and North America in November 2019. There was one thought in his mind – it’s time to do something solo. But, how to do it? Little known to him, Covid 19 was about to strike and provide the perfect opportunity to begin experimenting. As lockdown 1 commenced, an old friend (Adam Tarry, who had been in bands with Sam at school), got in touch out of the blue with a video of him playing a Longpigs track on guitar. Sam replied with a short vid of an old track they had written together years earlier and a conversation was begun that would lead to the bones of Panic being sent from Ad to Sam. After some days playing with the idea, the final song was built and a new song writing partnership was born.

With 5 studio albums under his belt in Skinny Lister and The Alps, Sam is excited to take the first step towards doing things his way in releasing a debut single and then album later in 2021.
