Sounds Like: Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin
Bio: grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and moved here a few years back. It had always been my dream to sing and live in the Unites States. I believe that if you work hard enough, you can achieve anything you want. So that's what I'm doing... working hard and chasing my dreams.
“I began my night back at the Galleywinter/Red 7 stage where I ran into Joey Green and some other friends. It was there that a friend introduced me to a very cute girl holding a guitar. I was introduced to her as “Hey Brad, this is Sam from Amsterdam!” She said she was really enjoying LJTs because it reminded her of home. I thought that was hilarious. Turns out she came to Texas less than two years ago partly because of the music scene. And, now here she was about to jump up on the Galleywinter acoustic stage and rip it up. This girl had no fear. She was our very own Jesse Felder find. After she wrapped up at the GW/Red 7 stage, we trekked across the festival grounds and took her to Shayne Hollinger’s pickin party where there was one helluva jam going on. Roger Ray and Jeremy Watkins were there playing along with all comers. Up stepped Sam from Amsterdam. She opened her mouth and belted out some big notes and everyone grinned and nodded approval.”
