Sam Returns To NYC For One Big Night


Sam played an intimate show in New York this week at the Dominion in Manhattan. He premiered several songs from his new album,  Return To Paradise,  slated to be released in spring of 2012.  Together for the first time in NYC, Sam and his talented band took the stage to perform a soulful and new tight-knit funky sound that Sam has been rigorously forming over the last few years.  The setlist included new songs such as We Could Fly, Let The Love In, Happiness & Paradise People.  He also performed crowd favorites such as Black & Gold and a rendition of 21st Century Life/You's a Nasty/Gypsy Woman.
