Sam Chalcraft & The Little Love Left
‘From Busk till Dawn’; A tale in finding your feet.

It’s strange how sometimes, after years of being on the move, it’s only when you finally find home that the real journey can begin. When Sam Chalcraft arrived in the ‘big city’ of Vienna in late 2016, guitar slung across his shoulders like a modern day, millennial Dick Whittington, he threw himself into Vienna’s thriving Singer Songwriter and Punk scenes, and embraced any and every possible stage. From the street corner to the coffee shop, metro stations to squats, smokey bars to cosy living rooms-for three years Sam’s contagiously catchy songs, and disarming honesty have rung out to the ears of Vienna-and further since to some of the continent’s biggest stages (Nova Rock, Punk Rock Holiday, Bay Fest, and Mighty Sounds, to name but a few).

Having been raised upon a heady mix of Punk Rock and Ska music from an early age, one particular band to stand out for the rosy cheeked, nine-year-old Sam were Lagwagon. Furthermore, the label ‘One Week Records’, begun by singer, Joey Cape, produced what were hugely defining records, and cooked up a dream for Sam to one day release music under that label. Years later, after Joey and himself became firm friends following the OWR Competition, they hatched a plan to produce Sam’s debut LP in an intensely creative week in L.A. Not a bad result for that nine-year-old Punk Rock bumpkin turned street musician from the seaside, I gotta admit.

Now coming off the back of a couple European tours with the aforementioned Joey Cape and other friends, these songs are being presented with Sam’s band, ‘The Little Love Left’, throughout Europe in 2020 and beyond. Expect more power, grit, and a healthy dose of good ol’ fashioned Rock n’ Roll.

‘From Busk till Dawn’ was released digitally on One Week Records July 31st and on vinyl via SBÄM Records on August 9th 2019.


The Shabs kommen diesen März zum fünften Mal zurück nach Europa, um ihre neue Single „To The Streets“ zu promoten – ihre erste Single seit ihrem erfolgreichen Album „Can You Hear Us At The Back“, das 2019 veröffentlicht und durchweg positiv aufgenommen wurde.

Nachdem sie seit ihrem Debütalbum „Folk Is Dead“ (2016) unermüdlich in Südafrika und Europa aufgetreten sind, liefern The Shabs ein enges, energiegeladenes Set, das aufrichtigen, melodischen Sing-Along-Folk mit der rauen Energie und dem DIY-Ethos des Punkrocks verbindet. Mit Einflüssen von Künstlern wie Frank Turner, Erik Petersen und Against Me! hört diese mitreißende Band nie auf, das Publikum dazu zu bringen, ihre hymnischen, ehrlichen und rauen Melodien mit in die Luft gestreckten Fäusten mitzusingen.
