An Arlington Virginia native, Sam took advantage of the opportunity to move to Greeneville Tennessee in 2020 to escape the chaos of California during the pandemic. Sam had moved to California when he was hired by United Airlines in 1986. He has been playing since grade school and was active in local bands on the west coast until it all shut down. He played prime Southern Rock extensively with Windwagon Smyth in Northern Virginia during the golden era in the late 70’s; more recently, he’s performed in California with The Eric Andersen Band, No Drama, Temphard Steel, LED (a tribute to Led Zeppelin), Blue-A Fuse, and Crosstown5. With the move, he has been looking for the right fit for his Southern Rock roots, and he’s excited to get back on stage doing what he loves with Shady Sadie.
