Sam Fletcher
Indie folk and classic rock performed with passion and integrity are the signature sounds of young songwriter Sam Fletcher. Influenced by the acoustic greats of the ’60s and ’70s, and the folk songs of old, Sam’s acoustic music features skilful acoustic guitar and smooth vocals. On the other hand, his Rolling Stones inspired rock is characterised by singing guitar riffs and charismatic solos, infused with Sam’s distinctive and fresh ‘surf’ vibe. It is this blend of roots and vibrant, youthful optimism that lends an old-soul maturity to Sam’s approach and produces his rare and magnetising performance style.

Rocktoberfest is nearly here! We’re stoked to have another brilliant local musician joining the lineup! Sam Fletcher has jumped on board to be part of the Oktoberfest fun. He’ll be kicking off the event for us with an acoustic set featuring his awesome original songs and some favourite covers too.

Sam recently released an incredible new rock ‘n’ roll single ‘The Storm’ following up his debut EP ‘Summers Here’. We were lucky to have Sam launch that record to a massive sold out crowd in 2021 right here at Smokey Dan’s.

Rocktoberfest is this Saturday 29th October! We can’t wait! Weather is looking great and we have an incredible day planned with a huge lineup of live music, comedy from Hamish Hudson, a bunch of fun games, prizes to be won and delicious German food specials on the menu. Get your tickets now via Humanitix.

Sam Fletcher - The Storm

The Storm

30 September 2022
Inspired by The Rolling Stones at age 15 I set my guitar to the bridge pickup, a lightly overdriven amp tone, and a Keith Richards style tuning. I fell in love with the sound and wrote my first real rock song ‘The Storm’.
The Storm is a classic rock track featuring a rolling and grooving rhythm section, singing guitar solos and energetic vocals. Instrumentally, this song is the sound of teamwork and collaboration. Brothers Sam and Galen Fletcher’s rhythm and lead guitars align and contrast throughout, Lucius Thangathurai’s fire drum work evolved from Kellen Lenehan’s distinctive beat, and Russell Fletcher holds the fort with his solid basslines. Throughout this jam, Sam’s punchy vocals bring to life the tale of this dark art form.

Latest Release

Summer's Here

Released January 2021
Summer’s Here is Sam Fletcher’s debut EP. The culmination of two years of songwriting and self discovery, this release is a selection of Sam’s favourite original songs, inspired by adventure, nature, the surf, travelling and other life experiences. Sam’s folk-rock fusion and youthful energy will evoke summertime memories of salt and sand, echoing a subtle nostalgic nod to youth cultures of yesteryear.
The title track of the EP, “Summer’s Here”, is a vibrant indie/pop-rock tune with distinctive ‘surf’ vibes, and lyrics that kindle an oceanic feeling of connectedness to the environment and the wonders of nature. Sam wrote the song about the beach and all things summer, with an underlying message of enjoying life.
