Sam hails from Franklin, Tennessee. Since the age of 15, Sam has found great joy in leading worship among the younger generation. The love for drumming came at a early age when Sam would sneak down into his brother's bedroom and bang on his drum set while listening to Creed. While his energetic style and passion light up the the stage, his dynamic playing brings the icing to the cake. Sam's love for drumming and people has brought him into the worship movement of America where he continues to flourish. Sam currently drums for a worship movement called Awakening and EMI Gospel artist Phil King.
