Singing with her Catholic school choir at the Sydney Opera House prepared Sam early for the spotlight. In contract to those early hymnal days, Sam truly found her musical feet here on the Gold Coast where she was a regular at venues such as the Playroom and Rose ‘n’ Crown. Her first rock gig was Hunters and Collectors at The Patch and her hearing has experienced a steady decline ever since.
Sam is a regular gig-goer and genuinely loves all genres. She’s as likely to be at a classical performance at HOTA as she is at a raucous punk gig at Vinnies.
While being lucky enough to learn drums, piano and guitar at primary school, Sam simply isn’t disciplined enough to get good at any one instrument. These days she prefers to strum the ukulele and nag her kid to practice his double bass and trombone rather than actually become proficient herself.
