Sam I AmSam I Am


A troubadour in the first degree armed with his trusty guitars and stories to tell of an adventure and journey of others and life experiences.  A singer-songwriter to the core his soul is drenched with a raspy almost grungy deep southern blues sound to emotive ballads from his heart with guitar licks so original they stop you In your tracks. A style of music of his new found enthusiastic fire and a lot of now grown up stories of sitting with friends for hours just talking and learning in every form taking in information, seeing things in a new light and perspective life on older mans light

Life hasn't been easy but who's is.
Sammy Hutchin the sole creator of @ 2018 Sam IAm Music (c) has played all around Australia clocking up 350 shows including, Festivals , Gigs , Shows, Open Mics , many weddings and a lot of busking in the early days.  His new songs have a bit more Blues Southern Mississippi Swamp sounds and his balls-out approach isn’t going without notice.  He still plays a lot of open mic nights where his soul and heart belong.

Our Brackets South event takes place on top beautiful Kincumba Mountain. The community built venue is a mud brick and natural timber building which sits in a bushland reserve, with panoramic views of Brisbane water and magnificent sunsets over the hills beyond. 

This venue is the birthplace of Brackets and Jam on the Central Coast and the community considers it as it's spiritual home. The Mountain itself holds a strong significance for our Aboriginal community and has been a long-standing meeting place for Central Coast people. The rock outcrop situated in front of the kiosk forms a natural pool which is said to have once been a sacred birthing place for women. The Mountain now gives birth to many new beginnings as the hub of creative community arts in the southern Central Coast region.
