Sam Johnson – “FUEGO” single
“Writing songs was the way I occupied my mind. It was the only thing that really interested me and held my focus.” – Sam Johnson
‘FUEGO’ contains a relatable storyline, pleasant vocals, and hip instrumentation scented with an indie-pop aroma.
“The first day I went out I made $60. I said to myself ‘I bet one day I’ll make $100.’ And then it became, ‘I bet I can make $200.’” In this way, Sam supported himself for more than 2 years. One CD at a time, one dollar at a time. On July 4th, 2012, Sam sold 100 CDs in 3 hours. “I ran out of CDs, I nearly had a panic attack. I knew that meant I had something, and I couldn’t believe it.”
Sam Johnson’s early musical influences include Bob Marley, Sublime, and No Doubt.
After falling on tough times, the loss of his mother and the subsequent quasi-homelessness, he moved to the Bay Area where he has a legacy of four generations.
His Great Grandfather built thousands of homes, many along San Francisco’s Ocean Beach in the first half of the 20th century.
In addition to writing and performing for audiences, Sam Johnson’s original music is often heard in TV shows on FOX, BRAVO, MTV, SPIKE and more.
Currently, he is writing and recording songs for The UFC. Also, his original theme music is part of an upcoming series on A&E.
