Watch & Listen
Sam Burchfield's sound ranges from clever lyrical ballads to upbeat funky compositions. Add in some banjo driven folk in songs and you're almost there. From banjo, to brass, to traditional rock 4 piece, Sam has taken the diversity of modern music and blended it into his own multiple-genre style that keeps the listener entertained, interested, and impacted. With a voice that can be soft and sultry, or full of loud southern soul, the music Sam Burchfield writes is connected by an authentic passion and energy that audiences have been hungry for.
After appearing on American Idol Season 13 and receiving a golden ticket to Hollywood, Sam turned the show down and released his first EP titled Where to Run on February 4th, 2014, a few months of graduating from UGA. Since the release, his EP charted #8 on Billboards Regional-South Atlantic Heatseeker chart and gained notable attention from industry professionals as well as #1 college music blog GoodMusicAllDay.com. After the EP's success Burchfield booked his own tour of the Southeast, sleeping on floors and couches, and winning over crowds one at a time.
In his short career, Burchfield has shared the stage with notable acts such as St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Ben Rector, Josh Garrels, Emily Hearn and YouTube sensation Noah Guthrie. The Athens based singer/songwriter creates a masterful blend of blues rock, funk and folk, influenced by the likes of ZZ Ward, Ray LaMontagne, James Morrison, and even early Jack Johnson.
The EP Where to Run is complete with varying instrumentation from funky guitar riffs to a vintage jazzy horn section. The songs are bonded together with a chillingly precise rhythm section. Each track leaves the listener feeling pleasantly surprised by an exciting mix of Burchfield's multiple styles of music. While he has achieved much success as a young artist, the potential is limitless for this youthful dreamer and his noble guitar, Sassy.
Pip the Pansy
Pip the Pansy (formerly known as Wrenn) is the freshest new wellspring of color, fashion, and sound to come out of Athens, Georgia. Her song-craft has the polish and drama of a writer twenty years her senior and she’s armed with a voice that can be sultry, lilting, playful, or bold. A visual arts graduate of Georgia University, her immaculate sense for aesthetic is apparent in everything she does from her self-produced artwork and videos to the bubblegum-chic outfits she wears on stage. In the tradition of the Athens music scene, her music can be B-52 quirky, Beatle melodic, yet fresh to the ear. Her performances, nothing less than a star-burst on stage, have attracted a larger and larger following of “Fireflies” (her term of endearment for her devoted and loyal fans).
September of 2014, Pip the Pansy entered Chasepark Transduction Studios in Athens, Georgia with two songs in hand and a simple determination to pursue a career in music. Over the next three weeks, she proceeded to write, record, and produce 10 additional songs in a creative flourish that ultimately led to the release of her ambitious debut CD, Hi. An accomplished photographer, artist, model, and classically trained flutist, Pip the Pansy devoted the next year crafting a sound and look that took her from unknown to headlining act at the historic Georgia Theater in Athens. With her latest release , Apathy and Good Books , and upcoming EP, Royal Blue Daydream, Pip the Pansy continues to turn industry heads with her prolific writing, her visual command, and an overwhelmingly joyous presence.
