Samamidon is a collaborative effort between Sam Amidon and Thomas Bartlett (Doveman). Together they released one album called “But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted”. Sam Amidon later released the albums “All Is Well” and “I See The Sign” under his own name.
Both albums to date are modern interpretations of traditional folk songs (and one by Tears For Fears for good measure.)
Sam was born in Brattleboro, Vermont, June 3, 1981and currently lives near New York City.

    Sam Amidon or Samamidon ? [3] Sam Amidon, since most of his records are released under that name.

    Good point from nosnah there, but I believe the truer distinction lies in who was involved in the recording of the various albums. Falsehearted Chicken was made in collaboration with Thomas Bartlett, while All Is Well and Sign feature the "full" Bedroom Community roster (and many others). That would be my reasoning as for the "name change" and the timing of it, regardless of how it's written on the covers.

    I See the Sign is the only one written as Sam Amidon on the cover, though. All is Well has the same font and spacing as Chicken (Samamidon) so wouldn't they be the same and Sign is the only different one? Plus it seems like all the original reviews and places to buy All is Well are written as Samamidon...

    ''All Is Well'' and ''I See The Sign'' = Sam Amidon // ''But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted'' = Samamidon.

    Well I said last April that I saw him play and he was a douche. But I just can't help loving All Is Well.

    This dude is sick and I just can't stop. I experienced "But This Chicken Is Falsehearted" yesterday for the first time and have already over 200 listens of this guy. Amazing, for me even better than D. T. Broughton.
