Sam grew up with a passion for music before he even knew how to pick up a guitar. It wasn't till he started taking lessons in Fresno, California where he started realizing he can write music. Writing original music has always been what drove Sam to continue his musical pursuits.
After playing around in some bands, mainly in the genre of rock, he started getting really into singer-songwriters like Jeff Buckley, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. That's when his solo endeavors started blooming into what is now his art.
