I’m Sammy J. Riddle. I was born and raised in Seattle, WA. Music is mostly what I’ve thought about since I was about 8 years old. I’ve had a band since 6th grade. Luckily, I’ve learned a thing or two since then. I love making music. Writing, recording, and performing satiates this ever consuming constituent inside of me. I just love, love it, love it… and while I may be compelled by my own selfish reasons, it feels so good when you like it too.
The last few years with my band “The New Futures” were amazing and full of great experiences. Those guys are my best friends. We had some great successes as a group with favored reviews and a fair amount of radio rotation in the UK. I’ve felt pulled in a different direction in this last year though… I’m inspired by something just a little different today. At this point, my vintage Marshall stack can’t be heard on anything I’m doing, lol. Not bad or good, just different. Having said that, I feel that where I’m at today is the next chapter in my evolution as a writer and a performer. While I guess you could say I’ve been the principle songwriter and front man in most of my bands over the years, this will be my first endeavor as a solo artist. I’m very excited and inspired by what I’m doing. I hope that this inspiration finds you as well.
Follow me if what I do sounds interesting.
