Sam stops by to bring me his new debut EP Not A Hobby and we play all 4 tracks off the project and chat about each one. You aren't going to want to miss the live performance of "The City" at the end of the show as well. Honestly, one of my favorites. Just remember who introduced you to him first ;)
Growing up in the Northern suburbs of Sydney, Sam Fischer wrote his first song at the age of 12, a passion that led him to pursue a career in music during his teens and become formally trained in both the violin and saxophone. A degree program at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston soon followed, as did a move to Los Angeles where he dove head-first into the music scene working as a background vocalist with HOLYCHILD.
A prolific songwriter, Sam's talents led him to co-writes with DJ Mustard, Clean Bandit, Jennifer Hudson, Sabrina Claudio and Andy Grammar, among others, as well as a publishing deal with SONY/ATV Music Publishing.
2017 has seen Sam in various studios working on his debut album with top writers and producers including OAK, Fran Hall, Jaimie Hartman, Alex and Alex, and Alex Salibian to name a few .
His first, indie released single “Lean” debuted on StereoGum and has passed 275,000 streams on Spotify.
The Top music site raved: Fischer melds the R&B leanings of his smooth, tender vocals with pop craftsmanship for catchy, sultry grooves.
