Meet Sam (he's on the right above). Sam is an audio engineer in Los Angeles. As he says in his Instagram profile, he's a: “Producer, keys player, mixer, overall decent guy." The photo above is from the Grammy's. He and his team did all the music for the movie Sing 2 All the piano/keys, including the gorilla's big solo, is Sam playing! They filmed his hands as he played to get the fingering correct in the animation. So. Cool.
Along with his day job at a music studio in L.A., Sam freelances and plays his own music. Here is a link to all of his many songs on Spotify. Click to listen! His band, Local Strangers, has three new songs (Open Minded, De Ti, and I'd Do Anything). I don't think I'm biased when I say that his music is pretty amazing! He writes, composes, sings, and plays keys on all these songs. Shoulders is one of my favorites. As is Country Club. As is Small Explosions.
Ah heck, I love 'em all. And him. ❤️
