SAM WRIGHT

SATURDAY 6TH AUGUST - RED LION - 16:15-16:45PM

 

Sam wright is a singer songwriter, who has lived in Doncaster all his life, having being born here in 1995.   Sam sang for most of his early years at school concerts, family get togethers etc. but this ceased throughout his latter school years.

However as Sam approached 16, some good school friends of his started their own band. although he used to `hang about` with them, he played no part in the band. it did however inspire him to revaluate his position on singing / performing in public..

At the age 0f 17 he bought his 1st acoustic guitar, and (with the aid of online tutorial sites), started to learn to play it. In September 2012 Sam played in public for the 1st time, at the open mic night at `cask corner` Doncaster.

Following on from this, in October 2012 he performed live on stage to `paying public` for the 1st time. Playing a combination of covers & original songs. the event was a local charity fundraising evening. helping raise monies for charitable causes, has always been something that sam has involved himself in.

Since October 2012 Sam has performed (& been support for other artists) on numerous occasions & at numerous venues. including professor green (keepmoat stadium).

Sam can been seen busking & entertaining the public most weeks around Doncaster, Leeds, Chesterfield, Manchester and the likes…..

His style of music is acoustic. & to date he has written 4 original tracks. he draws his inspiration from listening to the like of – Charlie Simpson, Damien Rice, Ed Sheeran etc.

during `Tfest 2013` Sam released his 1st ep `proud of me`,

September 2014 saw the release of his music video to `in between` from the ep `proud of me`......
