Carol Le​e Sampson

                                       Music to make a difference

CHANGING ATMOSPHERES!

For the last three decades, Carol has been performing & writing songs of life & worship, endeavouring to capture the delicate, often hard emotions of life, but also to bring a message of great hope through her story & worship songs.

Changing the atmosphere through music & song is something she is so passionate about, and having travelled extensively around dementia homes, she has witnessed first hand the power of music, & the way it resonates with so many!





"DO WHAT YOU CAN 

WITH WHAT YOU HAVE 

WHERE YOU ARE" 

                                                                          (Theodore Roosevelt)

Since writing her first song at just nine years old, Carol has been developing her craft, & has  had many of her worship songs published by Integrity Music USA.  She has shared her story  on stations such as UCB Christian Radio, BBC Radio Jersey, BBC H&W, & Eternal Radio,  especially regarding her work in the dementia homes.  With audiences ranging from one to five thousand (yes her smallest ever audience was one!!) she seems at ease on any platform, & has an authentic, & natural rapport.

 

Originating from Jersey, Channel Islands, music is in her blood, & she's followed in her professional father's musical footsteps. Writing her first song at just 9 years old, she then began piano lessons at 11, and guitar at 14. Arriving in the UK in the early 80's, she gained years of experience of live gigging around the midlands, and numerous hours in the studio, session singing for radio jingles and adverts.

1990 saw a big & exciting  change for Carol! Her new found Christian faith resulted in a move to West Sussex, (with her then husband Colin Owen) where they became part of the music ministry at Kingdom Faith Bible College. It was during this time that she wrote many songs for corporate church worship, recorded numerous CD's, and travelled around the UK, leading worship for large conferences. She's also ministered in the Czech Republic, Belgium, America, Norway, Spain, Gibralta and Burundi. 

It was in the spring of '95 that she was approached by 'Kingsway Music', which led to a music publishing deal and worship album called 'You Alone Are God, under her former name Carol Owen.

She gave birth to her son in 2002, and during that time began to write her songs of 'life', reflecting on her changing circumstances & life's journey. 2006 saw the release of her first solo 'home recorded' album, 'Back to Life', which captured the previous ten years of her story in a very cathartic way! Then followed the 2012 album 'Bigger Picture, and 'The Key' in 2015, which she recorded alongside talented local producer Dave Draper.

Currently Carol is part of the music leadership team at Eden Centre, in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK, where she has been attending for the last nine years.
