Information About Sam - Roehampton teacher
“Sam’s one of those rare talents who understands music in his head. Having never played a lap steel he picked mine up one day and proceeded to immediately produce some amazing sounds. I realised then there’s a lot more talent than first meets the eye. Whenever I’ve worked with Sam on stage I’ve always been impressed with his guitar playing and great vocal ability.” Bill Chambers (Kasey Chambers) “Great musicians have technique and feel. One’s no good without the other. Sam has both and, if that’s not enough, he’s a good writer and a great singer who’s finding his own voice. Sometimes I think he’s got more talent than he can use. Watch this bloke.” John Schumann (ex Redgum - currently John Schumann & the Vagabond Crew)
Many years ago Sam ran away from home to join a circus. He lived in a double-decker bus while performing four nights a week around Australia. Sam eventually came home but he left again to perform and record with some of the biggest names in Australian popular music including Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil), Shane Nicholson, John Schumann (ex Redgum), Bill Chambers, and many others. Sam is an accomplished singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His talents are enshrined in the four albums and two EPs of his own compositions he’s recorded – as well as the music he’s composed for theatre. Sam has toured Canada with the No Strings Attached theatre company, East Timor with John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew and throughout Europe as a solo act. Sam was the bassist of the award-winning alt/country band, Huckleberry Swedes and regular bassist and singer with John Schumann and The Vagabond Crew. He has also played with legendary country artist, Bill Chambers, father of Kasey Chambers. Sam now lives in London, UK where he regularly performs, composes and produces music.
