Sam Beste


Delving comfortably within the sounds of jazz, soul, classical, and electronic, Sam Beste is a rare polymath in music. He honed his skills touring worldwide with the late Amy Winehouse as her pianist, and later founded his band Hejira, where he performs guitar, vocals, and keyboards. Sam has continued making contributions to multiple solo and collaborative projects - writing, arranging, engineering, mixing - for the esteemed Matthew Herbert, Floating Points, Kano, Kindness, Clare Maguire, and Tawiah. Alongside establishing record label Lima Limo Records, in 2017 he furthered his output, scoring the acclaimed feature film Daphne, produced by The Bureau. Sam has a natural intuition to see potential in pre-existing and new ideas, and dedicates his energy to create compelling music. He currently produces and performances solo material as The Vernon Spring.
