    Show starts at 7:30 Country/ Soul - Music was one of the few constants in Sam’s life. His family never stayed anywhere for long, which meant that friendships were forged between himself and the music he absorbed, from Roy Orbison to Van Morrison to Willie Nelson. The influence of Ray Charles can be felt from the first note to the last beat, making Sam’s debut a complimentary companion to Charles’ own, two-volume Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. Leaving home as soon as the opportunity arrived, Sam landed in Knoxville, and later Nashville. Sam has spent hours, in fact years, collecting and arranging the relationships and experiences he has forged. To the average person, they seem like an amalgamation of time and happenstance, but to him, they are the moral of the story. “I never once felt, in this whole process that someone just kind of pointed. No one took me by the hand, but almost every single one of these connections were very personal. I was introduced to these people that helped make this record. These are gonna be people that I’m going to know the rest of my life.” Lewis has drawn us a clear picture of where he’s going, and thankfully, he has invited us along for the ride. Q U O T E S : I just fell in love with his music; his delivery and his whole thing. I thought, ‘Man, this guy has really got it going on’, which is very unusual for hardened, grim professionals like us to be impressed by somebody like that. It’s one-in-a-million. It hardly ever happens. KENNY VAUGHAN; GUITARIST FOR MARTY STUART (& NOW, SAM LEWIS) “Beyond the honeyed voice and sparking band (guitar hero Kenny Vaughan included), Sam stood out for his songs, which had that been-here-forever quality. It’s no wonder this guy’s generating buzz... He sings a little like Van Morrison, making it Americana with a groovy twist. More of this please.” CRAIG HAVIGHURST, NASHVILLE’S MUSIC CITY ROOTS “...It’s like hearing Al Green for the first time...” GRANT BRITT, NO DEPRESSION (NORTH CAROLINA) “...inspiration in country-singing soul men of earlier generations — like Ray Charles, Leon Russell and Van Morrison it shows he’s deeply committed to both soul and country streams, and the combination fits him like a second skin.” JEWLY HIGHT, NASHVILLE SC
