Sam grew up as the youngest of a musical family in the woods west of Madison, Wisconsin. He started out on piano, has played trumpet and tuba, but settled in on guitar when he was 7. Sam's new CD was released on 12/21/12 and features more of Sam's great originals along with a unique cover. His self produced solo acoustic CD, released in June, 2011, features 11 original songs, and has received great reviews.
Sam's oldest brother Clay is a jazz saxophonist who has toured internationally and is on full scholarship at Boston's Berklee College of Music. His 21 year old bro Isaac is one of the Midwest's hottest young hip-hop performers - he fronts the "21st Century Crew" and has a new solo release out as rapper Duke Daeo. Sam's dad is a bass player, trombonist and singer who has toured and recorded with Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown), Butch Vig (Garbage) and Freedy Johnston. Check out a review of The Light here!
