Red Carpet Interview
Nominated for Independent Pop Artist of the Year – 16th Annual LA Music Awards
Sam Drysdale was raised in Guelph, Ontario, Canada – the son of musical parents who influenced him from an early age with everything from Bruce Springsteen to Pink Floyd to John Prine to Carole King. After high school he attended the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles where he was immediately flagged as a “songwriter to watch.” His original music has already been cited numerous times by the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International and his debut EP “The Fight” features not one but two award-winning producers – Davor Jordanovski and Grammy winner Paul Brown. Sam Drysdale has been compared to artists such as Alex Clare, Ray La Montagne, and John Mayer. But the truth is – Sam Drysdale is one of a kind. A unique artist with a unique voice and the ability to write mature, compelling, hooky songs that belie his young age, 21. The Fight represents the absolute best of Sam thus far. Lyrically significant, brilliantly rendered and produced with the integrity of the song always at the forefront, these 6 songs showcase a powerhouse young talent on the verge of international acclaim.
