At school, Sample Answer was a bit of a rebel. Starting out as a glam rocker wearing glitter, purple pants, and frills like Prince, he performed as a looper, mixing drums, bass, synths on his Casio keyboard whilst playing acoustic guitar. A version of 'Yonkers' by Tyler the Creator went down a storm at the school talent show, much to the distaste of the vice principal. He has come a long way since then.
In the last two years, Sample Answer’s music and work on the live circuit has been turning heads. Since moving to London in 2013, the Dublin-born singer has been busy. From couch surfing across town and doing an open mic night two to three times a night nearly every day for a year, he has gone on to support cult artists such as Pete Doherty, Larry Love from Alabama 3 and Paddy Casey.
