Sam was raised in an environment enriched with gospel music since his father orchestrated and played the guitar, while his mother sang for their church. His father taught him how to play the guitar and his passion for music began to grow rapidly. Sam taught himself piano while taking vocal lessons with Melissa Mulligan, who was mentored by Mike Mangini, a producer for the Jonas Brothers. He has recently started working on his choreography and performance skills with Paul and Brian Herman of Double Up Company & Entertainment who have worked with Alicia Keys, Kat DeLuna, and Chris Brown. He signed to Double Up Music Group in 2016 and has been creating new music with Diddy’s “Making The Band” artist, Donnie Klang. Sam writes and composes his own music alongside his vocal coach.
