You’re tired. Your boots are worn. Your feet are blistered. You’re almost 4 months into a 10 month journey that everyone said would kill you.
You’re starting to think they were right. You hear music. You’ve heard it as long as you can remember. Every instrument and melody is clear, but you are the only one who can hear it. There needs to be a record. It needs to be heard. If you die on this mountain, no one will ever hear it. You stand up. You start walking.
You make this album.
"Sam Ness is taking the Madison music scene by storm. His rugged charm coupled with immense talent have made him a stellar act to watch"
-On Wisconsin Radio
"At 18 years old, Sam Ness looks and sounds like he was born a few decades too late.
His hair and beard conjure images of Jim Morrison circa 1969, and, like Morrison, Ness writes poetry that he sets to music and prefers the character of old European cities. But Ness isn’t as lost as Morrison was."
-Wisconsin State Journal
"Sam's voice is like an electric blanket that I want to wrap myself up in on a chilly night"
-Madison Area Music Awards Finalist Party MC
"...his husky voice soothed all our chilly souls and he dappled his set with a few covers from Passenger, The Lumineers and other folky loves of ours."
-International Sound Project
