Raised in the beach cities of Southern California, his soulful blend of Acoustic Pop and Reggae gives Sam what he calls "The quintessential California sound”. Rated the #1 Singer-Songwriter 6 years in a row by San Francisco-based, Sam Johnson is the ultimate combination of talent, charisma, and fun. He has performed with dozens of internationally known musical performers such as Train, Andy Grammer, and Matt Nathanson. Most recently, he’s been selected to perform at the BottleRock Music Festival 2021 in Napa CA, with Foo Fighters, Stevie Nicks, Guns N' Roses, G-Eazy, Miley Cyrus, and many more. His original music has been featured in shows on MTV, VH1, FX, and Bravo. Sam has been passionate about music since he was 14 years old. During his tumultuous adolescent years - he found an outlet through music. Shortly after several uninspiring jobs and months of couch-surfing, Sam started performing at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Day in and day out he would lug his gear back and forth, picturing his dreams of one-day making music his career. During his time there, he was able to grow his fan base which led to new and exciting opportunities. In addition to his accomplishments above, his cover of the song "In The Midnight Hour" was chosen as the theme song for Macy's Black Friday ad campaign which aired nationally 2 years in a row and he’s held a weekly residency at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco for more than 5 years.
