With a family filled with musical talent, Sam Behymer didn’t take long to realize that she too had a love for music. This 22-year-old Texas native is pursuing her music career in southern California. When it comes to music, Sam says it’s her native language. Read on to learn more about this rising star and how you can see her live!
Sam is a recent graduate from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA and admits she’s had her fair share of road blocks as a musician. Even so, she believes the only way to overcome difficulty, no matter the circumstance, is to focus on things that are good and true. “I can either be driven by fear or by truth. I want to choose truth.”
Sam just re leased her new EP “Bluebirds In,” and is proud to say that she writes all of her music.
“The EP addresses many different kinds of fear and uncertainty. My hope is that my exploration of those emotions within myself can help other people to work through their own difficulties.” she said.
Sam’s music sounds like a cute mix of acoustic indie with a tiny touch of pop. In her own words it sounds like a 22-year-old playing the piano and singing what she feels. Watch out, Sara Bareilles!
“I’ve been told that I have a unique voice, and I try to use my voice in such a way that the emotion in the lyrics comes through.”
Sam’s next show is Saturday, March 26, at The Roxy Theater in Hollywood. Can’t make it? Don’t worry! Sam is planning a summer tour too. Stay tuned to see when this song bird is flying to a town near you. Can’t wait? Check out the music video to her song, “If You Don’t Mind”!
