Sam’s voice and guitar playing are the signatures of the sound. His booming baritone and soulful growl give the music a robust edge; while his heavy, swinging guitar has been described as “a marriage between Peter Green, early Clapton, and early Hendrix."
"What a badass!" - Rebecca Lovell (Lead Singer of Larkin Poe)
