Her songs have an unusual quality of honesty, depth and humour very much belonging to the craft of songwriting and what it takes to move someone, mixing heartfelt story-telling with catchy melodies and clever quirky lyrics that make you smile and stand strong enough alone to carry a solo acoustic performance.
Her voice is emotive and charismatic, sweet seductive tones that can break your heart, make you laugh and turn you on all in the space of 20 seconds.
Live she makes you feel that the songs are written and performed just for you, even in a crowd of thousands. Sam Batt's unique sound lives in the spaces between Chrissie Hynde, Jamiroquai, Manu Chao and more traditional acoustic flavours of artists like Jack Johnson, Joni Mitchell and Mouse - her voice also has a raw, dynamic quality more akin to Cerys Matthews or Stevie Nicks.
An acoustic album "Raw for The Record (part1)" and studio album "More" were both released in March 2010.
She played the Big Chill 2009 and was the main support on Chesney Hawkes' acoustic tour in February 2010. More recently she played at Festinho, Out Of The Ordinary and Brighton's White Night Festival.
The authenticity of Laura Marling, the very English kookiness of Kate Bush with the sexy delivery of Nina Perrson.
