Indie folk and alternative 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.
Sam has been performing and writing songs since an early age. He had been frontman to four-piece rock band Kumera Patch, before deciding to adopt a solo name. These guys made a splash in their local area pumping out original surf rock, influenced by artists like The Rolling Stones and Jimmy Hendrix.
Over the last few years Sam has played several small festivals and recently completed an East Coast tour to promote his latest single, “Travelling All This Time”. He is ready to bring his music to a greater audience on the back of this tour that took his band to Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong and many regional centres.
So far Sam has shared stages with a number of significant acts including The Strides, The Swamp Stompers, Corey Legge, Catherine Britt and many others. His most recent singles have received radioplay across Australia.
Sam Fletcher is in the process of recording his debut EP and preparing to tour over late Autumn. The EP will feature recently released singles “Birdie On The Window”, “Travelling All This Time” and “On The Road” in addition to new material. With his dedication and passion for music, this up and coming artist is already making an impact.
