Just a dude who plays fun rock songs with a gameboy and guitar.
"Sounds like 1992-era Weezer, fronted by the baby of The Presidents of the USA and Les Claypool."

Sam's been writing and performing weird music for over 18 years. It all started with the folk-punk-strange band Compost Shark, with Dave Richardson, back in 1998. After creating two albums of bizarre anti-folk/experimental music (Guppy Farm, and ROCK!), Compost Shark went to school, and thus, on hiatus. Sam relocated to Vermont and went on to perform by himself at many open mic nights under the name, "SamSam, the man so nice they named him twice". This was just a warm up for his next band, My Kids Are Jerks, with Dan Sachs (drums) and Justin Tougas (guitar). After playing a bunch of shows and releasing the album, "Love Is A Weapon", they promptly disbanded, which, in retrospect, was probably a bad career move. Sam moved to Boston and joined The Oh! My Gods, to play bass guitar and sing back-up vocals with band members Mike, Abe, Ron, and later, Rob. History repeats itself, and again coinciding with the completion of their first album, The Oh! My Gods disbanded, and Sam took a break from performing music for 4 years. Sam has played shows in cities from Atlanta, Georgia to Madison, Wisconsin, and performs regularly in Massachusetts.
Sam also hosts listening parties on his Twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/heyscram.
