Sam Ferrara is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Long Island, NY, but has been based in Nashville, TN since 2017. Working on music her whole life, Sam only began songwriting in her late twenties. Her goal is to write music that will make an impact on others, based on the stories she tells.
Early in her career, Sam performed at many venues including Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Off-Broadway at Symphony Space and The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in Houston, TX. She also traveled to Europe to perform shows in both 2010 and 2012 and in recent years, she has been performing at venues and festivals throughout the city of Nashville and all over Tennessee. Highlighted performances include The Cutting Room in New York City, The Bluebird Cafe and The Listening Room in Nashville, TN.
Sam recently partnered up with music maker Amanda McCarthy, who we have featured before, for their newly released duet "Get Out of My Town."
We were hooked the minute we listened to this saucy country tune. Between Sam's rich, smooth vocals and Amanda's spunky attitude, "Get Out of My Town" is a musical masterpiece.
As we've heard from many songwriters before, music has the ability to heal all wounds. "It all begins with a truth and a story," Sam explains. "You're the one who has the power and strength to tell it."
With sassy lyrics like you made your choice, I guess that's fine, but I'm done letting you haunt my mind, "Get Out of My Town" is based on a true story about one of Sam's ex-lovers moving to Nashville. The boot-stomping melody provides a boldness to the song, while the heartfelt lyricism adds just the right amount of emotion.
We don't know where these two stand now, but Sam has definitely claimed her stake here in Music City. To quote Nancy Sinatra, these boots were made for walking...and that's just what Sam will do!
