Having supported international success stories such as British folk troubadour PASSENGER, breakthrough Australian artist MATT CORBY, Irish rock outfit THE CORONA’S and Australian Triple J favourite MAT MCHUGH of THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS on the road Sam has forged a unique sound blend of alternative country & folk songs. Sam’s sound rings out with an honest and unadulterated simplicity, his song writing reminiscent of artists such as Ryan Adams, John Moreland & Jason Isbell. Highlights from the last two years include Sam performing at the sold out MadNes Music Festival (2014/2015) in the Netherlands as well as joining West End Theatre star Daniel Koek as a special guest artist at The Royal Albert Hall in London.
Starting out busking the streets of Adelaide in 2011 and a hugely successful first tour, Sam’s lead single ‘Bruises’ from debut album release “Our Shining Skin” hit #1 on the Triple J Unearthed Roots Chart on New Year’s Eve, 2012/13, where it consolidated its lead for a consecutive four weeks, peaking at #6 in the Overall Top 100. 2012 proved to be a milestone year that saw him back in the recording studio to commence album number two almost immediately. Since then Sam has gone on to release his second full length LP “Live Simply” once again cracking the Triple J top 10 with lead track “Small Town” and gaining accolades from Roots N All host Sarah Howells as well as a special recording from Melbourne’s prestigious Athenaeum Theatre whilst on the Passenger theatre tour with fellow Australian songwriter Stu Larsen.
