“What Sam Robbins does looks effortless. He is self-motivated, genuine and has a quiet confidence that simply grabs your attention any time he is on stage.”
A multi-instrumentalist from a young age, Sam began learning drums and piano, falling in love with guitar at age 13. He then started writing original music, recording his first EP during his sophomore year of high school, while playing gigs at local and regional venues in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
In 2014, Sam won the Music On and Up Grand Finale, a competition that attracts hundreds of performers from around the country each year. Also in 2014, his performance of an original song was featured on Comcast On Demand.
Over the years, Sam has shared the stage with Aaron Carter, Amy Grant, and American Idol top 3 finalist Alex Preston. Now studying at Berklee College of Music, Sam Robbins continues to gain considerable attention as he performs live around New England.
Sam’s first full band record released in 2016 includes upbeat songs and intimate acoustic moments, reflective of his music influences.
As he continues to perform full time, Sam's music captivates and draws in listeners from across New England and beyond.
