The best kept secret in music


"This is hot!"

One of the finest exponents of female rock n roll since Alanis Morisette and Heart. Love this girls voice. She truly unique! - CD baby Stubble E Zine

"One to watch"

There are so many radio friendly singles on this album its quite an achievement, the artist has a long and detailed career ahead of her.

"Bigger Than Avril"

Sam is a female singer/songwriter who churns out catchy bar hoppin’ pop-rock flavors with ease. Her voice is majestically melodic while the guitar pop and weave throughout choruses meant for stadiums or Clear Channel radio stations. She has a bit of a heavy side to her which comes out occasionally—you can tell this ain’t a chick you want to rub the wrong way, she’ll deck you without even blinking. If Avril is allowed to make it on a big level, shouldn’t Sam Lombardi be even bigger?

"A great debut release"

Listening to "take your pic" by Sam Lombardi you instantly recognise that she has a gift, such a powerful voice for such a young frame and best of all...completely believable in every aspect. I see a hit brewing on mainstream radio here in the US alone. Power to this dynamic and unique artist for delivering such a strong debut album.

"Only 16yo"

a Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Well the first thing that blew me away about Sam Lombardi is that she's 16 freaking years old! Hello! She sounds much more mature than that. She's from Melbourne, Australia and has been singing all her (short) life. She first performed in front of an audience at the age of 9 so she's almost an old veteran by now.

This record is made up of songs mostly written by others, but she did co-write four of the songs, so I'm going to go ahead and say she qualifies for this site.

The songs are really pretty good. I'm not usually a fan of rock quite this hard, but it's done very well. The black and red packaging makes one expect punk, but it's more complex than that. Not that there is anything wrong with punk music, don't anyone send nasty letters. It's just that punk is not generally known as a real complex, intellectual style of music.

The songs on "Take Your Pic" have a certain depth that is sometimes lacking in rock music today, especially that put out by teenagers. This is no Ashley Simpson. This is really good stuff. Well-written songs, great vocals and professional musicianship. The only thing is, I'd like to see her write more of her own stuff in the future.

Note: here's something interesting, while choosing my favorites, I made it a point to not look at which songs she wrote and which ones she did not. I did not want to be swayed in either direction. I ended up choosing all songs she did co-write. This tells me that she's quite talented…or at least* I *like her!

Stand out songs: "Moment In Time", "Ordinary Day", and "Open Your Eyes" - Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

"One of the best..."

Reviewing this great CD was a pleasure to our ears. It was such a change to get this in the middle of so many more than typical and mediocre releases. We predict big things for this little package of dynamite with all the power of a Mac truck!

"Very surprising!"

Its rare to come across an album that is finely crafted, well produced and brimming with strong tween and teen anthems as this release from Sam Lombardi. Original songs like Ordinary Day and Open Your Eyes just stood out and shows off the inherent original style that this artist is obviously growing into. A great album and well recommended. -

"Go Girl Go!"

Well she certainly can sing like a woman posessed and now we find out that she can play damn good guitar too. Power to this artist that really does define the real nature of the growing womans movement in today's sadly lacking rock n roll scene.

"Hard and Heavy with sweet tones."

Loved this release, solid and engaging from the first song to the delicate outro of the piano ballad that seemed so out of place on a rockin album and yet now seems so right. Big drum production and driving guitars dominate the feel of this debut release from Aust rocker, Sam Lomnbardi. Look out for this one, she'll sneak up on you when you least expect it. Nice work! - Maximum Ink

Feeling a bit camera shy


When she’s not playing guitar or listening to her favourite bands, chances are Sam Lombardi will be singing her lungs out.

Her album is currently available on CD Baby, Tower Online, Indie 911, IAC and I Tunes as well as at local retail outlets across the US. In January 2006 the radio plugging mainstay, “He Sells She Sells” serviced US radio programmers with the CD and in 6 weeks she was added to 58 stations on light rotation with a particular emphasis on the singles, Young & Stupid and Ordinary Day.

Most recently Samantha has secured the following highly marketable opportunities as further credits to her steadily growing career.

Ø She was commissioned by LA based animation company, Taffy Ent / Mike Young Productions to write and record the theme to the new US animated series, “Growing up Creepie” which will be airing in the fall on the Discovery block for NBC and has already been syndicated worldwide.
