Sam IAm
A troubadour in the first degree armed with his trusty guitars and stories to tell of an adventure and journey of others and life experiences A singer songwriter to the core his soul is drenched with a raspy almost grungy deep southern blues sound to emotive ballads from his heart. With guitar licks so original they stop you In your tracks when he plays. A style of music of his new found sound almost Hendrix meets Jimmy Page meets Seasick Steve with a Cornell sense of melodic vocal and the capability of playing a good Hendrix/sheppard/cobain type lead blues break he has stuck to his Blues & Roots foundations and never changed only the music style only thing has changed with or without him. Is the different new gerre his heart will always bleed blue

A new found enthusiastic fire and a lot of now grown up stories of sitting with friends for hours just talking and learning in every form taking in information, seeing things in a new light and perspective life on older mans light
Life hasn't been easy but who's is.
Sammy Hutchin the sole creator of @ 2018 Sam IAm Music (c) he has played all around Australia clocking up 750 or there abouts. Including, Festivals , Gigs , Shows, Open Mics , many weddings and a lot of busking in the early days. a few competitions one at Byron Blues & Roots Busking Comp 2012 Byron Beach Hotel Making The Semi Finals , Busking By The Sea 2008 - Narrabeen Sands placing 5th Overall , and most recently at Music Pro Studios placing 2nd Overall also placing 4th at Busking By The beachcomber Hotel - Toukley 2013 ( He got ripped off ) oh well.

Sam IAm is looking to play a lot of gigs he has a lot of new songs to get out there he hs found a new drummer after 13 years without one. His new songs have a bit more Blues Southern Missisippi Swamp about them a drummer and percussionist will be the back bone for his new balls out approach but he still plays a lot of open mic nights as his soul and heart belong there its where it all started and he still loves hearing new up an coming talent as he once ran his own Open Mic @ Club Palm Beach Sydney NSW Australia, for 2.5 years and loved helping younger kids find there feet and follow there dreams or kick start them as he was when he first started out .
