Momentarily Mine is one of Sam’s favourite songs and the first single from his first album 'Sam Smith Diva Boy’ - recorded in 2008.
"I've gone on an incredible, incredible journey with the first album it has given me the ability to learn my art." Sam
Sam is currently an award winning global pop-star. however, it didn't happen overnight and without a lot of work. He may have dropped out of academics but he definitely took his masters in music.
"Smith has the background to succeed and seems to have been groomed for pop stardom" Tim Jonze - Guardian Jan 2014
Yes, Sam was in development and trained for success over three years with Flipbook Music, a London based Indie Label. It was at Flipbook Music that Sam's dreams were nurtured, his, then undiscovered, talents uncovered and developed and it was there he learned his art. It's also where he experienced all his 'firsts', including recording his first album, his first live and video performances and first interviews and, later on, his interviews as an informed person when he shares his views on life, love, sexuality and more. This journey was recorded every step of the way for the making of the documentary... 'Sam Smith The Lost Years'.
It's easy to see how those 'Firsts' shaped Sam's inevitable journey to success as we watch him emerge from a 'teenage wannabe' to a 'ready-to-be' pop star and informed person... probably the most unique footage ever seen of a global pop star in training, leading to the fulfillment of all his dreams and ambitions... and only now being made available.
