Her work in television includes acting and composing for soundtracks. She released her debut jazz album, The Nearness of You in 2012. Initially Sam contacted band-leader John in regard to her jazz work, but then filled in with Grand WaZoo-Kings of Soul at short notice. She was so impressive in terms of her talent and professionalism, that she was invited to perform with the band from time to time - and we were so delighted to have her join the line-up in 2013.
