A dash of country, a smidgen of rock, a hefty dose of blues and a drop or two of psych for good measure; These are part of the ingredients that Dee Why local Sam Hutchin has combined to create his musical alter-ego Sam IAm. The concoction goes down like a fine Whiskey and with even more material on the brew, things are about to get very boozy.
For several years already, Sam has been honing his craft, whittling away at his sonic offerings to create a soundscape he can comfortably call home. His debut EP, Serenade The Dead is a strong indicator that this is being achieved. At the start of the year, Sam unveiled three more cuts, The King & I, Tickin’ Time Bomb and Do The Stomp En Shuffle, all testament to an artist rapidly coming into his own.
His skills as a storyteller haven’t going unnoticed, either, with Sam receiving critical acclaim off the back of his string of singles, finding himself in the pointy end of various blues & roots charts.
On the live front, Sam has clocked up some considerable road hours throughout Australia, meandering his way throughout pubs, bars and watering holes, some 250-odd of them, unfurling his Mississippi-esque Blues to anyone fortunate enough to be within earshot.
This year will see Sam kick things up a gear or two on all fronts, both on stage and in the studio. Currently, the troubadour is prepping and priming his next body of work, which is shaping up to be the more encompassing release from Sam to date.
Sam IAm is available to perform at your venue, cafe, wedding, BBQ or date night via Six8.
Worked with more famous artists than can be mentioned, at the Sydney Opera House, parliament house, entertainment centre, Hong Kong Hilton, Hotel Borobudur in Jakarta, most concert halls in Australia, most clubs and pubs in Sydney.

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.
