Sam’s songs offer a lyrical depth and maturity that is at odds with his youth and set him apart from many of his peers.
His songs talk of finding hope, courage, beauty and redemption in the midst of the struggle of everyday life, and Sam sings with an authentic and passionate voice which connects with a wide audience.
Supporting Sam, who as well as leading the band plays guitar – not to mention a mean tambourine - The Innocent features Jamie Steenbergen (drums/percussion), Gio Metaxas (guitar), Stephen Clift (bass), and Hannes Porombka (guitar).
Influences include John Mayer, Switchfoot, Bruce Springsteen and Mumford and Sons but Sam creates unique music. Instantly recognisable, the songs blend catchy, radio friendly hooks and powerful guitars fleshed out with rich backing vocal harmonies to deliver a full, vibrant and edgy sound.
A “band of brothers” by day, on stage their powerful and exuberant performances move seamlessly from a tightly rehearsed set to a relaxed spontaneity with the boys and the crowd feeding off each other’s energy.
The band are continuing to play shows across the country. Tour dates can be found here -
