Toronto, ON
Pop/Rock
It’s rare for artists to have the ability to infuse pop/rock records with layers of lyrical and emotional depth. Sam Louis is one of those artists while still getting you on your feet and onto the dance floor. The Humber graduate of the Contemporary Music Degree program inspires on stage while demonstrating his technical skill. Sam has studied with various musicians such as Greg Wells (Adele) Rik Emmett (Triumph) Ian Terry (Celine Dion) and Denzel Sinclaire (Diana Krall) learning the ways of songwriting performance production music marketing and music business. Sam has also had the opportunity to work and song write with London based producer/songwriter/programmer James Sanger (Madonna U2 Phil Collins) and has rehearsed and worked with Toronto based Musician/Producer/Songwriter Alan Shiner (Pizza Pizza Coca Cola Mariah Carey and Drake). In 2017 Sam was recognized by the Toronto Independent Music Awards being nominated in the BEST POP ARTIST category. He has also won an Indigenous Music Award for Best Pop Album through three collaborations with his friend Joshua De Perry (Classic Roots). This past year Sam finished recording a new 7 song EP at Noble Street Studios under engineer Kevin O’Leary (Tragically Hip Shawn Mendes Billy Talent The Glorious Sons Walk Off The Earth). With the release of his sophomore single “So Long California” Louis demonstrates not only how addicting and enticing his hooks are but how his voice can soar over all the rest. Expect this and much more on Sam Louis’ newly released EP “Hallelujah Nights” available now.
