Sammy began composing and arranging songs when she was 13. Sammy’s songs are inspired by her friends and real life situations. Her music reflects influences of Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Pink, Rihanna and Ed Sheeran. Her soulful voice pays allegiance to Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne and Carrie Underwood. Sammy, aligning herself with one of her music mentors in describing herself as an artist quotes, “I am like Elvis Costello, I write what I want, pop, county, rock, or whatever I feel. Writing and performing music is one of my deepest passions in life.” This drive and determination inspires Sammy to focus on a deeper understanding of her world and her relationships with people to create her unique brand of pop music that touches people at an emotional level seldom accomplished by young songwriters.
