Recognizing his innate talent, it didnâ€™t take much convincing for Samâ€™s parents to start him with organ lessons.
By the time he reached high school he was quite an accomplished musician, playing professionally in bands as well as doing solo â€œgigs.â€
After graduating high school, Sam attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Receiving his degree in Performance, he then moved to Nashville where he began playing as a session musician, recording with some of Music Cityâ€™s finest artists. He also worked as a staff writer with Otis Blackwell, known for penning such hits as â€œDonâ€™t Be Cruelâ€ and â€œAll Shook Up.â€
In the early â€™90s feeling his music beginning to shift, he began writing original solo piano compositions and produced and released his debut CD, â€œA Time For The Heart.â€
Sam began researching something a few people discretely discover......... the healing effects of music. Often taking retreats in beautiful nature settings as inspiration, a natural creative process was born.
â€œMusic has always had the power to transform oneâ€™s thoughts
And feelings, taking you to another place and timeâ€
This new-founded knowledge caused his music to take a new direction; a direction of healing, inner peace, and a calming of thoughts to those who heard it. Knowing this to be his musical purpose and intention, Sam soon began writing and composing music to evoke these powerful â€œtransforming emotions.â€
His latest CD, â€œNew Beginningsâ€ takes the listener on a meditative and self discovery journey. Individuals experience an awakening and renewal of their souls. Couples have a warm and welcome invitation to a rediscovery of each other, enhancing their passion.
Today Sam continues his work writing, composing, and performing healing and self-discovery music, as well as conducting workshops on the healing benefits of music.
