Continuing in the great tradition of Harry Chapin and Mike and the Mechanics, Sam Tompkin’s Bloodline is a powerful tribute to his relationship with his father.
Of course, his style is much more in touch with the modern-era and there’s a certain amount of Ed Sheeran feel to the vocal style here, and if that’s not enough, Justin Bieber thinks Sam’s one of the best new vocal talents around!
Bloodline is a slick blend of power indie and pop and it really works, the chorus, “Wasn’t only a building, you lived in and left behind, You left your childrеn, and with them, came your bloodline,
Evеn though you’ve left here, believe me, you’ll never die, There will always be a little bit of you in I” is really powerful.
You feel Sam’s sense of loss but also his optimism that he can carry on the legacy of his father.
Most of all though, it’s a real ear worm, listen to this 2 or 3 times and you won’t be able to stop singing along to it all day long.
Give it a listen today, you’ll be glad that you did. Miss you Dad.
