Sam Johnson - Artist Profile

San Francisco, CA
Singer/Songwriter, Reggae, Pop
Opening for Train and Matt Nathanson on the Sail Across The Sun music festival at sea in 2020, recently on tour with Andy Grammer, and with a number 3 song on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts, Sam Johnson describes his music as "Quintessential California Music."

Heavily influenced by the Pop/Alternative/Reggae music of California in the 90's, Sam has gained over 25,000 Instagram/Facebook followers combined, and hundreds of thousands of plays on Spotify. He attributes this mostly to the time he spent street performing in San Francisco, “It was like touring the world from a street corner.”

Sam is most often compared to John Mayer and Dave Matthews, and Dave Matthews himself once said that “Sam has a beautiful voice. He reminds me of my friend Martin Sexton.”

Sam maintains a busy performance schedule at his weekly residency at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, as well as at many corporate/private events, and colleges across the country. He most often performs solo with a loop pedal, but he can also perform with a two or three piece ensemble, with upright bass and percussion.
