(2) An acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter, Sam’s story starts at the tender age of eight. Influenced by the likes of Neil Young and Led Zeppelin, he found comfort in the family nylon string and slowly started to create an innate style of his own. However, it wasn’t until his early teens, with a love for the guitar firmly embedded, that his intimate vocal sound and smooth, appealing lyrics started to unfold.

Born in Port Lincoln, South Australia - a small town almost surrounded by water - it’s no surprise home is a big inspiration for a lot of Sam’s songs. He started surfing around the age of five and now at 24, still lives for the ocean, surfing and waves.

In 2000 Sam choose to travel to Sweden where he became guitarist for the successful jazz/ pop band, Blender. It was here, through the bands front man, Hans Andrasko that Sam learnt more about song writing and performing. Once back in Australia, it didn’t take long before he started playing gigs in Port Lincoln and Adelaide as a solo musician, earning himself a loyal following.
