Farah - singer for the151s

Sam is a natural.
He is a phenomenally talented drummer, able to pick things up really quickly.
He works well with band members and really completes the sound.
He lives and breathes his drums and it really shows in the finished product - live or recorded.
I have recorded jazz, rock and pop tracks with him and was thrilled with the finished tracks.
Look forward to working with you again soon Sam.


Lewis White - bassist

Over the years I have worked with Sam in several different musical situations and each time has been a joy.
Sam will effortlessly adapt to any given musical situation from the hardest riff soaked rock to the most delicate up-tempo jazz.
Sam also possesses an arsenal of hand percussion and cajon skills that are the perfect addition to your project.
One of the pleasures of working with Sam is his display of deep understanding of not only his own instrument, but the instruments around him and how an ensemble works.
It's hugely refreshing to work with a drummer that can communicate musical ideas on the fly and Sam is able to improvise ideas with ease.
Great reader, Great guy and a true musician.

Tim Hand - singer

Have performed with Sam many times, he is an excellent drummer.
Often he's come in to play with no practice and he always spot on, improvising his own beats a lot of the time.
Sam is very professional and a pleasure to work with.
