Sam Krüger is a singer-songwriter from London, Ontario. He released his first EP, "Moving So Slow" in his hometown in 2015 which managed to chart on a few college radio stations across Canada. Soon afterwards he made a small summer trip to Montreal and determined to move there the next month - arriving days before starting university level philosophy and French. Sam was quickly introduced to local musicians after having accidently become a balcony neighbour to the weekly host at Grumpy’s ‘Chick Pickin’ Monday and soon found himself playing regular acoustic gigs in café’s and pubs around the city. Since the move, Sam has toured through southern Ontario with acts such as Old Time Honey and as guitarist for Ali McCormick. He has been honing his song writing and musicianship to create a well established and engaging solo act ever since.
Most recently (May 2019) he has released his EP "All Sick Again". “All Sick Again” is a collection of songs that go back as early as 2016 and up to 2018. It is filled with lyrics and song structures that blend drama and comedy. They follow themes of love, emotional manipulation, aging and overindulgence. Often based on, and then exaggerated from situations in the artists own life. In All Sick Again, you'll find the lush harmonies and strong emotional dynamics that Sam's music is becoming known for.
These songs were recorded at Gern’s (musician and bartender at Grumpy’s bar) basement in Montreal, at Gaby Girard's home studio in Montreal and at Mike Donaldson’s home studio in London Ontario, Sam’s hometown. With multiple musicians featured on the EP including the bassist, cellist and saw player Vimul Him known for playing in Ghostly Hounds. Valentina Piras, a vocalist who for a time lead the signed to universal music group Luna Blu in Brazil. Aly Marguerite, arranger, and leader of Old Time Honey who has previously produced music for circus show “Bang Bang”.
