BIOGRAPHY

Indie folk and alternative rock performed with passion and integrity are the signature sounds of young singer/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 leads 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, The Spindrift Saga, 19-Twenty, Corey Legge, Catherine Britt and many others. His most recent singles have received radioplay across Australia.

Sam Fletcher is about to release his debut EP, “Summer’s Here”, and will be undertaking a small regional tour focused on the South Coast of NSW to support the release. 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 one to watch.

Summer's Here EP - press release

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 EP will be available via all major streaming platforms and Sam’s website from Thursday 28th January.

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.

The EP also features four other tracks:

“The Monster”, a blues-rock powerhouse anthem that challenges consumerism and society’s negative impacts on the Earth.

“On The Road”, a classic rock track with a hint of Australiana, written while Sam was camped on the Finke River.

“Travelling All This Time”, a singer-songwriter country ballad which became a musical testimony to Sam’s caravanning travels across Australia.

“Birdie On The Window”, a laid back jazzy tune inspired by the blissfully naïve butcherbird singing to Sam through his studio’s window.

Birdie On The Window - press release

Sam Fletcher will be releasing his latest single “Birdie On The Window” on Wednesday the 17th of June. The song will be available via all major streaming platforms, and will be accompanied by a lyric video on social platforms.

Sam aims to capture the dynamics of human emotion within a world dominated by technology in his reflective soft rock groove “Birdie On The Window”. Inspired by a blissfully naive butcher bird, the song takes a journey through Sam’s existential thoughts, questioning stress, technological overload and peace. In the background, conga percussion lends a soulful, Jack Johnson-ish air to the tune with a hint of influence from Paul Simon’s “Graceland”.

“Birdie On The Window” was composed, recorded and produced by Sam. The tune features a catchy grooving rhythm, storytelling vocals, experimental bridge, lush harmonies and a singing guitar solo. All vocals, lead and rhythm guitars, programming and keys are by Sam Fletcher; rhythm guitar and bass is played by Russell Fletcher; and percussion delivered by Cristiano Castellitto.

On The Road - Song Preview

On the road - press release

South Coast NSW based solo artist Sam Fletcher will be debuting a new single “On The Road” Wednesday 4th September. The song will be available online via Spotify, iTunes and other streaming outlets.

“On The Road” is a classic rock powerhouse with modern flair. Written while camped on the banks of the ancient Finke River, the song is a testimony to Sam’s adventure around Oz in a clapped-out caravan and failing car. With fresh indie vibes and a hint of Australiana you can almost feel the landscapes traveled to inspire this track.

Composed by Sam, the song features three main rhythm guitar parts played by Galen, Sam and Russell Fletcher, providing a driving harmonic canvas for Sam’s story-telling vocals and wailing guitar solo. Kobi Briggs’ drumming keeps it steady while adding considerable elegance with his lively style; and Russell plays a bass line, fattening the sound to the max.
