New single ‘Sorry’ puts artist Sam Least on the map
ATLANTA, GA – West Palm Beach native Sam Least is a lifelong student of contemporary Rhythm and Blues, taking cues from greats such as Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake to create a sleek, modern sound that is one-of-a-kind. Musically, Sam Least is described as the perfect blend of past and present, beat and groove, soul and rock. His style breaks genre molds and splices different sounds into something fresh and new.
This is perhaps best displayed on his new single “Sorry,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. The R&B/Trap fusion is a bit of an anthem, so-to-speak, for all the guys out there. Sam said it’ll be the perfect song for gentlemen wanting to connect with their ladies over Valentine’s Day.
Sam’s path to full-time musician started early when as a boy he fell in love with playing the drums. As a child, he used any household utensil he could get his hand on to drum with, and he would drum on anything that would produce a sound. He began to study some of the best drummers of all time and to this day he’s a big fan of legends like Travis Barkley, Buddy Rich and Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters. He’s also been a fan of Jazz for as long as he can remember and has always been impressed by how Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake have combined Pop, Jazz, Rock and Hip Hop in ways that connect with fans from all walks of life all over the world.
“I want to emulate that kind of career,” he said. “I want to be known as an artist who can do a little bit of everything. I want to be known for quality, good music. When people hear my music, they will know it’s quality and good … not just a vibe. It’s timeless. Five years from now you can put on one of my records and it’ll still feel like it just came out yesterday. No matter what timeframe you’re in, it fits that time – in fact, it’s maybe even ahead of its time.”
Another single recently released by Sam is a song called “Postmaster.” Underscored by cool, atmospheric tones and pounding 80s, “Postmaster” creates a perfect ambient vibe. Sam’s unique approach to Trap-driven Hip Hop also carries an almost overwhelming amount of melody which makes it easy for listeners to kick back into the sound and enjoy the lyrics.
“As a musician, sometimes lyrics or words just come to mind as soon as you hear the right track,” Sam said. “That’s the way it was with this song. Me and a couple buddies were recording and I heard the track immediately and just started mumbling stuff before I even knew what I was doing. From there, it caught life and it has become something I’m really proud of. It’s a bit of a sexual song, if you will, about a gentleman speaking to young ladies. Basically, he’s telling them to bring their friends and he’ll bring his and together they’ll have a great time.”
As “Postmaster” is gaining traction and an increasing number of fans around the U.S. is starting to find Sam’s music. After “Sorry” drops in time for Valentine’s Day, Sam will prepare to drop a party song called “Time,” slated for release this spring. With a more upbeat tone, this song will encourage listeners to have a good time – something that Sam said will be perfect for the months when the temperatures start to get warmer and people want to head outside and enjoy the later nights.
