The Brighton-raised vocalist, Sam Tompkins, who is also Justin Bieber’s “favorite new artist”, delivers a heart-warming performance in this story-telling indie R&B masterpiece. The slow and steady chord progression gives a nice build-up to beautiful vocals and harmonic rhythm. Sam’s voice sounds like pure heaven, which is a trip you’ll surely be made by the end of his song. The guitar riffs bounce off of his melodic voice as the drum breaks.
It’s so beautifully produced that every word and melody flows effortlessly. This song sounds like the tale of collateral beauty – the experience of losing a loved one but finding so much beauty in the experience of remembering their presence. As the song builds up, you’ll soon realize that Sam is telling a story about losing someone who has left a legacy – through their own bloodline. Sam says “Bloodline is a reminder that no matter how far our loved ones go, they are always still with us wherever we go.” This is a divine message of love, loss, and reconnection through spirit. Bloodline is a story of letting go and understanding that true love continues to live on – even if it’s just through your bloodline.
After spending quality time listening, you’ll find yourself holding back tears – overwhelmed with every emotion by the tone and the delivery of heartfelt lyrics from Sam’s voice.
