Sam is currently living in Birmingham, AL where he was born and raised. He is an aspiring country lyricist and has written lyrics to over 30 songs, some of which have been put to music.
Sam has been writing for decades, mostly poetry for a better part of his life. Almost everything he writes comes from personal experience or feelings he has had. Although, a few of his lyrics are pure fiction or "what if" scenarios. His passion is country music to the core. Sam really got into writing country lyrics about 2 years ago as he submersed himself into the country genre, listening to songs and lyrics for the content and what connected with him. Through that process, he began to write words down and eventually they turned into full lyrics.
As a boy he grew up listening to Conway Twitty, George Jones, George Straight, Bocephus and many more that would be considered "Traditional Country" artists. He loves the traditional country sound and desires to use most of his writing to bring that sound back. That doesn't mean he can't write an upbeat more "poppy" type of song, he just prefers the traditional sound.
To Sam, lyrics are about telling a story or making the listener connect with the song in some small way. If the listener sees themselves in this story and connects with the lyrics, then Sam feels like the lyrics are a success. Sam says, "You want something the listener can feel to the core of who they are, that's what makes them sing the song",
Sam's lyrics include anything from the sappy love songs, sad songs, fun songs and just the corny old tunes that people just love to hear and sing along with.
Sam is currently seeking musicians in the country genre to connect with, share is lyrics with, and collaborate with to take his career to the next level. With over 30 lyrics under his belt, he is anxious to see if he can help someone else reach their next level that may not have original lyrics to use. If this is you, or you know someone who is looking to get there musical/ recording career off the ground. They should definitely reach out to Sam to see if he is a fit for the path they desire to take.
