Bio

A 20' something phenom, Sami Starr is steadily changing the way we see r&b/reggae/acoustic music. Starrboy is said to be a combination of Marvin Gaye, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Bob Marley and Usher. His brand of music is new and fresh. The lyrics draw you in and make you picture yourself in the song. A young man from The Bahamas Islands, Sami Starr grew up in church playing the drums and piano and singing lead for his church choir. He was exposed to music from birth as his father and mother had their own gospel band. Sami Starr grew up listening to artists like Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, The Winans, Marvin Gaye, Clark Sisters and others. This influence clearly shows in the soul and real life situations in his music.
