First single 'My All' from her three-part EP series entitled 'Start 2 End' due to release on Valentine's Day 2020
A letter from Samantha:
Hello, I'm BMI Recording Artist Samantha Ann. I have a passion for positivity in good music. I am a singer-songwriter from South Texas. Music is all around us, for some it courses through our veins. My first sentence, I sang and my first few paragraphs became a song. My message is one of hope and positivity.
I am blessed with Epilepsy. Although having epilepsy is very hard on me, music rescues me. Even when my dreams seem so limited. By writing and performing my own music I connect with my listeners on a personal level. Maybe they are going through something I went through and my words touch them in a way that only music could. Not only is it a message for my listeners but for myself as well. I need to prove to myself that I had exactly what I thought in me and just because someone says you can't do something, doesn't mean you shouldn't try. If you see it and you believe it, then you'll achieve it. In this I'm a firm believer.
Because of my success with the first four songs, I walked the red carpets at the Country Music Awards and attended the after party with the Stars of Country Music. I was so frightened by the flashing lights and my epilepsy, I stepped back from the mic for a few years and developed manic depression. Part of my goal in reaching an audience who cares about other people is to start support groups for people who suffer any type of mental illness. 73% of musicians suffer from some sort of mental health issue related to music. I want to be there for those people by spreading love and empowering music. Something someone could not only relate to but thrive through.
