I found Sam Sparro about a year ago. The out Australian singer is handsome and his singing is hot. His first CD was released last year, and the first single, Black & Gold hit the airwaves. He was signed in the UK, so it took a bit of time to cross the pond to get to the US.
The eponymous CD is an R & B flavored collection and certainly one worth purchasing for any music library. The songs Cottonmouth and 21st Century Life are particularly good, although Black & Gold is the jewel.
You can find out more about Sam Sparro are his website or his MySpace.
