Sam RB is a full time singer-songwriter, musician and recording artist. She has three albums, music in the soundtrack of the NZ film ‘The Insatiable Moon‘ and the New Zealand Olympic Song to her name. All albums are available to buy directly from Sam RB, and also digitally and on CD from her store.
Early in life, Sam RB was draw to songwriting in an attempt to make sense of the world. On leaving school she was forced to step back from her music. While she continued to write, songs came alive behind closed doors and were seldom shared. It took 21 years for Sam RB to find her way back to the music, the catalyst being her debut album ‘Seems I Might Be Human’.
Her second album ‘Queen Street Acoustics’ was developed on Queen Street (Auckland) and captures the wonderful and life-changing transition, from being house-bound to performing live hundreds of times every year. It is an album of exploration and discovery. The diverse tracks encompass everything from love songs to social issues such as bullying and the rights of children. There are also reflections on psychosis and depression, and a tribute to NZ artist, the late Don Binney, co-written with Mike Chunn (Split Enz).
Sam RB’s latest album ‘Finding Your Way Home’ was released October 2014. It is produced and recorded by Andrew Buckton at Studio 203, and features artists: Stephen Small, Mike Franklin-Browne, John Mawdsley, Mike Chunn, Andrew Buckton and John Blackburn. Graham Reid had this to say,
“She sings with a street-eye view and empathy …and speaks of the fragility of people’s souls… her poetic lyrics continue to deepen and widen, and when you hear something as beautiful as ‘It Rains Down’ you know she’s someone special”
