I'm Sam Pinkerton, and I'm a singer/songwriter.
Born and raised in Venice, Florida now based out of Nashville, Tennessee.
In the beginning of Fall 2012, I decided that I wanted to take all the songs I had written since moving to Nashville and make my first full length album.

In November, I released a few songs on an EP Sampler which I'd love to give you for free. You can download it right here- www.sampinkerton.bandcamp.com
In early 2013, I released Stay Here, a song that will be on my album, through a live music video that features my friends in Judah & the Lion.
For the past year, my friends and I have spent over hundreds of hours
planning, recording and beginning to put together this album. We have seen many sunrises (even on school nights) and have dedicated every moment of our spare time into perfecting these songs. The album will be release this Fall, which will mark exactly one year since we began this journey.
Sam & Friends is a project that brings all the people in my life together to help make this record happen. Both musically and financially, everyone plays as equally important parts.
This project is only possible because of you so, I thank you with all of my heart.
If you look to the right of this page, I’ve been working on some things that I’m excited to give you as a welcome to our project and as the first of many thank yous.
Risks and challenges
My team and I here in Nashville started pre-production for this album in November 2012. Since then, we have gone through many songs, picking the ones that will be on this record. We have produced and perfected them to our liking so that they would be ready to record.
We've been blessed with donated studio time to begin working on this record. Therefore, it won't take too long until you can have a copy in your hands. We plan to finish tracking and hand it off for mixing in late July, followed by mastering in late August and then duplication so that we can release the recording in the Fall. Obviously, this is subject to change.
We need funds for the remaining studio time, paying for mixing, mastering and duplication which we calculated to cost about $10,000.
If we end up with extra funds, they will be used for paying for graphic design, a publicist, merchandise, tour expenses, paying our musicians, and if there still is more, we are saving every penny for the next album.
If you haven't donated to Kickstarter before, something important to know is that this is an all or nothing deal. If we don't meet our goal of $10,000 than we don't get to keep any of the money and you will be refunded immediately. If this were to happen, we aren't able to continue this project and release this music.
We are at a standstill until these funds are raised. We went as far as we possibly could on our own but now it's time we ask for you to partner with us and join the "Sam & Friends" team.
Thank you so much for your support, it means the world to me. If you have any questions at all, feel free to shoot me an email!
