Our most recent Artist To Watch, Sam Setton just dropped his brand new single “Santiago” about a girl he met down in Chile while he was on a trip to Chile to connect with his mother’s home country and culture.
“Santiago” is the most meaningful song I’ve ever written. Although modern sounding, “Santiago” is actually a song 6 years in the making. It’s the story of an ongoing relationship I have with a girl I met while visiting Santiago, Chile 6 years ago. I had initially gone to Santiago to see family and learn about the culture and country my mother grew up in, but I ended up starting a friendship and falling in love with this amazing woman.”
“Over the course of the next 4 years we exchanged drunken texts and voicemails, knowing we couldn’t be together because of logistics, but still showing our love for each other. When I finally sat down to write the song, I found some voice notes we had exchanged, and it really brought me back to that time with her. I was overcome with emotion and wrote the song in a few days. It is for this reason you hear that very voicemail sampled throughout the song.”
