    New Tune / Stripped Down

    This song found it's legs about mid tour in Glasgow, Scotland.  Until then, it had been living in an obsure corner of an external harddrive.  We had a show at the Glad Cafe and I figured out the chords back stage a few minutes before my set.  About three songs into my set I just went for it. This is pretty much what came out that night and it became one of my favorite songs to play for the rest of the tour.

    This song now exists in a more fleshed out form and it will likely be a single on the next release.  I wanted to first however give this version some time to be heard without comparison. 

    I hope you enjoy.

    What you feel in a Vic Chesnutt song is rare, few people have what he had.  To cover one of his songs is to inhabit something painful but come out feeling cleansed.  I hope you enjoy this and that you'll check out the vast body of work he left us.

    New "35mm..." Section added to the Site.

    Hey Everyone,  

    I've added a new section to the page dedicated to my photography.  It's called 35mm by Sam under the VISUAL tab.  I hope to add to it regularly and perhaps even document (the slightest of) skill development in this area as I become more experienced.  All of the images were / will be shot on 35mm film and professionally developed from film to the digital format that you're seeing here.  A lot of the photos will be from travel experiences but I'll also be shooting from my home & studio in Youngstown, OH as I record bands or myself or whatever ... my cat probably.

    I may set up a store for easy print purchasing but for now If you'd like a print, feel free to email me:

    I hope you enjoy these, I'm finding this medium to be a fullfilng outlet and I just want to share the experience with you.
