Saint Eden is Sam Bradley (lead vocal, guitar) and Bobby Harris (lead guitar, vocals).
Introduced by mutual friends a few years back they hit it off immediately and bonded over their shared musical influences and love of vintage guitars.
Bobby has an accomplished background in session work as a sought-after guitarist, on stage and in the studio. Sam had his first break a few years back with a song on the Twilight movie soundtrack and as a successful singer / songwriter in his own right touring across Europe the US and Canada.
When they met, Sam and Bobby discovered that they share a love for country music, its depth of lyric and its many faceted styles and they wasted no time in getting together to write songs. It didn’t take long for them to find their own sound and soon after Saint Eden was born.
It was a logical move for Sam who spent his early childhood living in Nashville growing up being influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Brooks & Dunn. His mum who is also a singer songwriter still lives there and runs songwriter retreats at her home.
The guys spent no time taking advantage of her hospitality and based themselves in Nashville for several months and immersed themselves in that world. Writing with and sourcing songs from the likes of Josh Osbourne (Midland / Lanco), Brett James (Jason Aldean / Chris Young), Jaron Johnston (Drake White / Keith Urban) & Steve Diamond (Faith Hill). And Bobby was able to reconnect with his old friend Sam Palladio, with whom he was collaborating before Palladio rudely disappeared to star in the Nashville TV series.
Now back in London with a growing catalogue of material Sam and Bobby continue to record, perform and collaborate with the cream of the burgeoning UK Country scene.
Their first single, Lonely When I’m With You came out earlier this year and is available on all the usual platforms.
Their new single, Dangerously Good, out 10 April, is available now for preorder.
You can all check out Saint Eden for yourselves on Wednesday the 8th of April via Instagram Live at 6pm BST. (For us yanks, that’s 1pm EST)
