Sam Burchfield's sound ranges from clever lyrical ballads to upbeat funky compositions. Add in some banjo driven folk in songs and you're almost there. From banjo, to brass, to traditional rock 4 piece, Sam has taken the diversity of modern music and blended it into his own multiple-genre style that keeps the listener entertained, interested, and impacted. With a voice that can be soft and sultry, or full of loud southern soul, the music Sam Burchfield writes is connected by an authentic passion and energy that audiences have been hungry for.

After appearing on American Idol Season 13 and receiving a golden ticket to Hollywood, Sam turned the show down and released his first EP titled Where to Run on February 4th, 2014, a few months of graduating from UGA. Since the release, his EP charted #8 on Billboards Regional-South Atlantic Heatseeker chart and gained notable attention from industry professionals as well as #1 college music blog GoodMusicAllDay.com. After the EP's success Burchfield booked his own tour of the Southeast, sleeping on floors and couches, and winning over crowds one at a time.
In his short career, Burchfield has shared the stage with notable acts such as St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Ben Rector, Josh Garrels, Emily Hearn and YouTube sensation Noah Guthrie. The Athens based singer/songwriter creates a masterful blend of blues rock, funk and folk, influenced by the likes of ZZ Ward, Ray LaMontagne, James Morrison, and even early Jack Johnson.
The EP Where to Run is complete with varying instrumentation from funky guitar riffs to a vintage jazzy horn section. The songs are bonded together with a chillingly precise rhythm section. Each track leaves the listener feeling pleasantly surprised by an exciting mix of Burchfield's multiple styles of music. While he has achieved much success as a young artist, the potential is limitless for this youthful dreamer and his noble guitar, Sassy.

My father used to wake the house with blaring music and out of key singing. Cowering in the bottom bunk, my face cringed with the shrill shriek of Bob Dylan. My body became restless by the rasp of Bruce Springsteen. And with unnerving fidelity, John Prine's simple melodies cut through my hard-pressed ears. It was a long road, but eventually his music became my own and those artists remain an essential influence on my sound.

Over the past 6 years I have toured the country with my Americana-Rock outfit, The Kalob Griffin Band. Currently, I'm working on a new solo release for the fall and a documentary depicting the influence my grandmother has had on my musical journey entitled "GHR XOXO.
