Born into a musical family, Sam was exposed to music at a very young age. When he was 6 years old he began playing the upright bass drum for a local brass band. By the age of 13 he was already putting rock groups together and began playing shows. At 16 years of age he began giving lessons to students both young and old.
Between 2008 and 2015 he performed over 300 times with a wide variety of groups. Now a hard-working drum set player having shared the stage with many different artists playing many different styles, and performed in Canada, the USA, Mexico, and Costa Rica, his musical work is extraordinarily diverse.
