Sam Page - Waiting For Another Spring EP

This is a fine EP, among the influences listed are Blur, The Breeders, Matthew Sweet etc, but you can safely add to that Super Furry Animals and many more great bands, that, is not to say that the songs or music lack originality in anyway whatsoever. This EP, or Mini Album of six tracks is remarkably immediate and extremely well produced, the more I listen, the more I love it and I am sure that you will too!

Sam Page climbing to dizzy heights!

Sam Page is an unsigned singer/songwriter whose guitar-driven pop/rock combines upbeat grooves and powerful rockers. There is no electronica in his music – just a raucous (albeit melodic) mix of guitars, bass, percussion and vocals. After releasing a home-recorded EP in January 2011, Sam formed a band and did 20 gigs in southern California. He then released a second EP (Waiting for Another Spring) in April 2012 that seems to resonate with fans of Matthew Sweet, Jack White, Sam Roberts, The Breeders, Blur, and CAKE.

What others are saying:

"Much like the rest of the EP, 'Pass Me By' has a fun swing to it, complete with heavy distortion and happy riffs. It has a power popish feel ... like Weezer."
          -- Audio Splash (June 19, 2012)

"Instantly hummable songs ... Page stands out among the DIY indie hopefuls with his knack for songwriting and creating a full sound on a shoestring budget."
          -- Here Comes The Flood (June 10, 2012)

"It conjures up good weather and good times, so you can put off waiting for spring with Page’s own sunny melodies and laid back vocals, almost Jack Johnson style. But in songs like Lottery and Like@FirstSite, it’s mixed with loud and infectious riffs reminiscent of The White Stripes."
          -- Anastasia Aboim, New Reviews (June 2012)

"I really love the sounds and production on [Lottery]. The vocals reminded me a little of Beck in places."
          --Rathole Radio (May 27, 2012)

"Sam Page kicks ass ... It's the best EP I've heard so far this year. 'Nuff said."
          -- Berkeley Place (May 22, 2012) 

To listen to the EP, take a trip over to Sam's website and take a listen, if you like it, make a purchase and help support an artists that I  believe we will be hearing a lot more from in the future.
