The second installment of our artist bio is here! Please have a read and learn more about the amazing Sam Cash.
Status update: Any new music, new releases, are you in the studio, on the road?
We put out my 3rd record “Tongue-In-Cheek Vows” about 6 months about, so we just have got through a decent bout of touring and promo for the record. I was just up in Banff doing a songwriting residency, so I’m feeling refreshed and looking forward to start writing for a new record.
What music are you currently listening to?
The new Solange, Frank Ocean, Bon Iver, Leonard Cohen, and Joyce Manor. Lots of great records have been coming out.
Who inspires you as a musician?
Bruce Springsteen is always a good guy to go to for inspiration—in terms of being a songwriter, singer, performer, and guitar player. I think he’s one of the best lead guitarists around—he doesn’t get the credit he deserves as a guitar player.
What song(s) do you wish you wrote?
Echo by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Who would you love to collaborate with?
While I was up in Banff I got to collaborate with Brendan Canning, Charles Spearin (Both from Broken Social Scene) as well as Kathleen Edwards—that was a pretty great feeling, to have such amazing talents appreciate the writing you’re doing, and helping you make it better. I’d be happy if I never collaborated with anyone else after that.
What made you want to be a part of Choir Nation? Why should companies want to be a part of this?
As an artist who performs a lot—it’s always the most fun interacting on and off stage with Non-professional musicians. I think once everybody finds a comfort zone with one another, there’s a lot of fun that can be had between that interaction. The life of a touring musician is such a strange isolating world—so that loose human connection is really important.
