Originally from Bexhill, Sam learnt to play the guitar from his father at an early age and quickly began lessons at primary school. From there he progressed to form a band at the age of 14 before deciding to concentrate on a solo career later on in his teens. He cites artists such as Gary Moore, Kings of Leon and John Mayer as his main musical influences but also acknowledges an eclectic mix from dance and hip-hop, to indie, pop-rock and blues. He gigs extensively around the local area including venues like the Black Lion in Brighton and Eastbourne's Buskers Bar, Chapter 12 in Hailsham and TinTins in Hastings. I especially like the following video for Over The Edge and there's several more on his YouTube channel.
