Asked for his all-time favourite advice received, folk-song crusader Sam Lee recalls his late artistic benefactor Stanley Robertson’s injunction – indicating ears then mouth – “You’ve got two of these, and one of those: use them in that proportion.” It’s a pearl that’s served Lee well, from Mercury-nominated debut LP to recent singing adventures with nightingales and Extinction Rebellion. Much-anticipated third album Old Wow, inspired by the power of nature, reimagines material initially sourced on his regular song-hunting quests. http://www.samleesong.co.uk
