Interesting facts and trivia about Sam Smith. By Songfacts®.

Sam Smith is the oldest child of Frederick a house husband, and Kate Cassidy, who worked as a trader for the City broker Tullett Prebon.

After hearing his eight-year-old son singing Whitney Houston's "My Love Is Your Love" in the car one morning on the way to school, Frederick Smith arranged singing lessons with a local jazz musician, Joanna Eden. Sam sang Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me" in his first lesson and the soundtrack to Cats in his second. He was often a backing singer for Joanna Eden at small London gigs.

Smith moved to London at the age of 18 and got a job as a barman, where he met songwriter Jimmy Napes. Together, they wrote "Lay Me Down," which Napes forwarded to Disclosure's managers in 2012. Smith co-wrote "Latch" that same year, a collaboration with the house duo that proved to be his breakthrough hit. Smith was still working at the bar when he recorded "Latch." He explained to Entertainment Weekly: "You could hear it in my voice that I wanted to be doing something else. There's a real hunger behind that song."
