For over 7 years, Sam has been ‘on tour’ playing nearly 1000 gigs across the UK & Europe. He’s supported world-class musicians from chart-toppers Toploader to reggae music’s rising star Mike Love, performed at the UK’s top festivals and frequently secures headline shows in Bristol’s best music venues with his band Verdisa.“Super catchy tunes delivered with a soulful verve that’s simply infectious.” – Dave Henderson, Williams Green Stage at Glastonbury
Sam writes and performs his own music which blends reggae, folk, jazz, blues (and more) with a genuine message of harmony, drawing influence from artists including Xavier Rudd, Jack Johnson & Jason Mraz.
More recently Sam has started playing gigs with his father-in-law, brother-in-law and friend (Jon Parry) in pubs across Somerset with The Sheriff. They perform Irish, bluegrass and blues music!
He is really excited to have supported CavefestUK from the start and continues to do so, not only as our resident musician but our entertainment manager.
His band Verdisa will also be performing at CavefestUK this year.
Starting out as a solo act in 2011, Sam has since teamed up with 3 fantastic musicians who create a really spectacular live show. The 4-piece band known as ‘Verdisa’ blend electric guitars, keyboards and harmonies with a solid groove which never ceases to get people on their feet, singing and dancing with a smile. They have played festivals up and down the country and their popularity is growing thanks to airtime on BBC Radio 2 and some great youtube videos
