“Down and dirty rock n’ roll is hard to come by these days, even more difficult for it to achieve the level of success Pace has…” – Overload Austin
Sam’s voice and guitar playing are the signatures of the sound. His booming baritone and soulful growl give the music a powerful edge; while his heavy, swinging guitar and thick, luscious tone have been described as “a marriage between Peter Green, early Clapton, and early Hendrix.”
The songwriting and originality of sound is of paramount importance to the band. Their rock n' roll roots and bluesy, soulful influences are always present- but their variations of theme, groove and emotion encapsulate an entire world of sonic pleasure. Their first two albums - The Feelin' (2012) and Rapture (2014) display the dexterity and growth of the band in full force.
Their newest LP - Judgment Eve - was recorded in Austin and produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith. Its release on June 1st, 2018 was met with a mighty reception.
