Sam Burchfield Band
With an honest voice, a band of buddies and a fancy hat, Sam Burchfield has managed to build a strong career as an independent artist at just 25 years old. His latest EP, Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into an already genre-crossing career. From folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam captures it all on his sophomore release.
“…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…”
-Emily McBride - VINYL MAG
Unarmored was a collaboration with Burchfield’s band, building the tracks around his carefully crafted songs and fleshing them out on the road and in the studio. The EP is a sonic journey that jumps from folk love songs like ‘Spring’ to horn-driven jams ‘Accidentally Cute’ and ‘Don’t Forget My Name.’
“This EP was definitely about uncovering and discovering my own sound and direction. The name Unarmored fits because it’s me sort of laying bare all of the different styles that are floating around my head. There’s also a few tracks that are pretty intimate and personal that bring that vulnerability home a little bit.”
Sam and the band have made ripples in the southeast US, opening for soul-phenom St. Paul & The Broken Bones, pop act Ben Rector, and growing a loyal fanbase the old-fashioned way with a powerful live show. Discover the new record Unarmored and keep your ears open for what’s next from this young talent.
EMMA HERN BRIDGES THE TIME GAP WITH HER RETRO ROCK AND SOUL SOUND. HER MUSIC IS STEEPED IN THE LATE 60’S AND EARLY 70’S ROCK AND BLUES SHE WAS RAISED ON IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, WHILE HER ELECTRICITY ON STAGE IS A FRESH FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
AFTER GRADUATING FROM BOSTON’S PRESTIGIOUS BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC, SHE MOVED TO NASHVILLE LOOKING TO EXPAND HER MUSICALITY. HER FIRST MONTHS WERE SPENT ABSORBING ALL THAT MUSIC CITY HAD TO OFFER, ALL THE WHILE BRINGING LIFE TO HER NEW CREATIVE VISION.
SHE WASTED NO TIME INTEGRATING HERSELF INTO THE LOCAL MUSIC SCENE. WITHIN HER FIRST YEAR, SHE HAS PLAYED A LONG LIST OF PRESTIGIOUS NASHVILLE VENUES AND SHOWCASES, AND CAPPED IT OFF WITH A SLOT AT PILGRIMAGE MUSIC FESTIVAL, WHICH ROLLING STONE NAMED THE, “FESTIVAL TO WATCH.”
