As the kid who would listen to classical music on NPR from the age of 8, Sam Ferrara has made music a part of her life ever since. Beginning with her voice and piano, she quickly realized she had a knack for instruments and learned the clarinet, alto saxophone, and her favorite, bass clarinet - just to name a few.
Since 2014, Sam’s pursuit of being a strong and whole-hearted storyteller never stopped. Developing her craft as a solo artist and traveling to Nashville for years really helped Sam find her path to songwriting. In 2017, she made the move to Nashville to live out her dream. In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Sam was a Middle School band teacher, passing on the passion of music to others. She is ready to continue to inspire others with her story.
Looking to shatter glass ceilings in the industry, Sam has been experimenting with combining different genres into her music - modernized country with an added flair of jazz, rock, acoustic and more. Her newest single, "Waiter," was released on June 16th.
With feisty lyrics like she's the best thing, you deserve to lose, no she's never been a waiter, so don't think she'll wait on you, "Waiter" is a gritty and inspiring anthem, delivering a message about female empowerment.
"Waiter is a strong, spicy and upbeat bop that tells the world you are not waiting around for someone that can't commit," Sam explains. "We all have that person (or thing) and you just need to carry on with your life without them."
As per usual, Sam delivers a fantastic vocal performance with her newest hit. "Waiter" shows off her edgy, Southern Rock side, while still maintaining the sweetness of her charming personality. She's been compared to badass artists like Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, and rightly so. Soon, people will be comparing other up-and-coming to Sam Ferrara...and we can't wait for that day!
Her debut album, “Piece of Me,” set to be released on July 28th, examines the ups and down's in Sam's life over the last 8 years. This is just the beginning!
