After landing a spot on the longlist of Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent Competition in 2017, Soham was faced with a choice: to continue with his studies at Durham University, or to pursue music as a full-time endeavour? For most of us, it would be an impossible dilemma: but not for Soham De. So, he left the world of academia behind and set about writing new music.
His debut single proper, ‘Brave’, was released in 2018, and he soon garnered support from BBC Introducing, Sofar Sounds, the Never Fade Sessions, SBTV, Amazing Radio, Oxjam, and BBC 1 Look East. Slots at WOMAD, Pinkpop, The Great Escape, Boardmasters, Live at Leeds, Hit The North, and Dot to Dot festivals followed, as well as a European tour with The Pierce Brothers and select headline shows across the UK and Europe.
