Sam Islam is an up and coming singer/songwriter from Washington. He writes and performs original music, and largely subscribes to the musical stylings of classic rock and modern pop-rock. When performing live, he usually performs acoustically and encourages the audience to participate. His original recordings are entirely self-produced.
Sam had been performing and recording since he was fourteen years old. After gaining a reasonably large fanbase in Vancouver, WA, he has ventured out to other parts of the state. Sam currently resides in the lovely Pacific Northwest but travels whenever possible.
Sam plays live whenever and wherever he get a chance, and almost never turns down a potential show. He is most commonly found performing at coffee shops and pubs, but has occasionally opened for several bands at conventional live shows. He has literally played everywhere from full blown concerts all the way to retirement homes. How's that for a little diversity?
Sam has been greatly influenced by classic and punk rock, including artists such as Aerosmith, Everclear, Def Leppard, Bad Religion, Dropkick Murphys, Guns n Roses, and Green Day
