Many years ago Sam Willoughby ran away from home to join a circus. He lived in a double-decker bus while performing four nights a week around Australia. Sam eventually came home but he left again to perform and record with some of the biggest names in Australian popular music including Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil), Shane Nicholson, John Schumann (ex Redgum), Huckleberry Swedes, Bill Chambers and many others.
Sam Willoughby is an accomplished singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His talents are enshrined in the three albums and two EPs of his own compositions he’s recorded – as well the music he’s composed for theatre.
Sam has toured Canada with the No Strings Attached theatre company, East Timor with John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew and throughout Europe as a solo act. Sam is a founding member of the award-winning alt/country band, Huckleberry Swedes and regular bassist and singer with John Schumann and The Vagabond Crew. He has also played with legendary country artist, Bill Chambers, father of Kasey Chambers.
Sam’s latest project is his third album, "Things Fall Apart".
