With his top to bottom solid sophomore album, Every Time I’m Home, Sam Chase has delivered a well-produced and arranged collection of Adult Contemporary-leaning folk pop songs that have massive appeal. If given the chance or if the right opportunity, his catchy songs could easily dominate the radio.

Has anyone ever seen Scituate's Sam Chase and James Taylor in the same place at the same time? Because the local singer has such a warm and welcoming baritone, and writes such charmingly infectious acoustic rock and folk-rock that you can't help but think of JT in his prime. Recorded at Weymouth's Sonic Disorder studio, this album sounds terrific, with spare but very effective arrangements--kudos all around. - Patriot Ledger

Bio

Growing up with the beach as his backyard, in a home that was constantly filled with music, it's no wonder where Sam got his laid-back yet musically sophisticated, easy-to-listen-to vibe that is apparent in both his albums--Songs for Someone and Every Time Im Home.
A multi-instrumentalist Sam plays guitar, drums, piano and sings on his most recent album, Every Time Im Home. His latest songs arent aligned with any one genre, but they do have a common theme of the ocean, family and love flowing through themthings Sam says he tends to write about.
These are the things that are closest to me. And because I write about those things, most of my songs send out a positive message. My casual personality is channeled through the music I write, which has a pretty chill vibe to it, but its hard to put a label on it. You hear elements of rock, pop, folk, country and blues throughout all of my tunes. I suppose it speaks to the influences Ive had over the years, he said.
Sam has been playing music from an early age when he started as a drummer in his familys band, The Gathering, and also in his brothers band, The Matt Chase Group. After graduating from Berklee College of Music and discovering his knack for writing songs, Sam set his eyes towards the singer-songwriter path and didnt look back.
Theres something about the guitar and something intimate and real about someone belting their heart out over an acoustic guitar. If I hear someone playing one, I have to go check it out and I think once I started writing a few of my own songs, I just got the bug, he said.
Sams earliest influences include Dave Matthews,Tom Petty, Sting and James Taylor, the latter of who Sam has been consistently compared to.
Yet Sam sings with a voice and plays with a rhythm that is entirely his own. Just a year after releasing his debut album, Songs for Someone, Sam was the winner of the 2010 Connecticut Folk Festivals Songwriting Contest and was a finalist in the 2009 Solarfest Songwriting Contest.
Every Time Im Home exudes Sams inherent musical ability. With his natural vocal talent and his catchy, diversified rhythms, its an album that pulls this gifted musician from his beachfront home in South Shore Massachusetts to the top of the list for todays up-and-coming songwriters.
