With an honest voice, a band of buddies, and a fancy hat; Sam Burchfield has discovered something special in his musical journey. His latest EP, Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into a genre-crossing career that has only just begun. From folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam and his band of 'Scoundrels' capture it all. The rowdy crew puts on a show that is electrifyingly entertaining and yet full of Burchfield's lyrical honesty and depth.
“…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
After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, GA, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s R&B capital of Atlanta. Sam and The Scoundrels have now made ripples in the southeast, and continue to grow a loyal fanbase with their passion for music and camaraderie for each other.
