I knew the humble beginnings of Sam Smith at the beginning of this decade, I say "humble beginnings" not because they were bad, but because he seemed aimless, without a defined style and, above all, without a musical idea xof his own, rather he was a singer and composer who wanted to move in the direction that the wind would take him. I think I felt that the British public had the same reaction at that very time when only was known there, maybe I'm wrong and I lack the vision to discover unpolished diamonds, but that was my perception when he made his first appearances in "T in the Park ", in Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom. Fortunately for all of us who love music and we are anxiously waiting for a brilliant composer to come and offer us new things and not the typical interpreter of past successes, in 2014 his first album, In the Lonely Hour appeared and came before the eyes of the world a new star in the musical firmament. "I'm Not the Only One" and "Stay with Me" burst the market and all the people turned to see with curiosity who this shy and charming boy was. The marriage between Sam Smith and his audience was immediate thanks to that record. Of course, the industry, now, would make him walk on the clouds and would offer him anything they could to get the singer's preference, because commercial success went hand in hand. And so, it was, after trying everything and with few results in the rural community where he lived in England and later settled in London, he had finally found gold and fame. With all due respect, I believe that he occupied very soon the empty space left by George Michael after his death, all those who followed the one that has now become a legend, found in Sam Smith the perfect refuge and he has known to reciprocate. Regardless of whether some of his songs have very specific goals about the things that people in the gay community live and suffer, every one of his lyrics can be identified with the masses regardless of their preferences. It is universal and is prepared for everything that comes. And in 2017 he surprised us again with The Thrill of It All and after listening to him for more than a year in my car every time I drive, I am convinced that for the artist and his fans, this album marks a trip without return. He has the brand of quality in his heart and what will come will be the confirmation of a brilliant legacy for music lovers.
