Who Are The Friends?
For as much as Sammy Rae & The Friends may be a band, this collective of dreamers and artists considers themselves a family first. Fronted by singer and songwriter Sammy Rae, the group flourishes in any spotlight with a combination of all-for-one and one-for-all camaraderie, palpable chemistry, deft virtuosity, and vocal fireworks.
Their sound is a mélange of Sammy’s influences, rooted in classic rock, folk, and funk and sprinkled with soul and jazz.
Complete with a rhythm section, two saxophones, keyboards, and plenty of percussion, Sammy Rae & The Friends have delivered their high-energy, spirited and unrestrained shows to sold-out audiences around the US, including Terminal 5 in NYC, two consecutive nights at Boston Royal, 9:30 Club in DC, TLA in Philadelphia, The Showbox in Seattle, Cannery in Nashville, and many more.
The Boston Globe and NPR alike have dubbed them an artist to watch is 2022. Sammy Rae just wrapped a 5-week tour celebrating her latest single, “Follow Me Like the Moon” and will be on the festival circuit this summer. Her next single “Time Being”, came out on 7/15/22.
The Mantra of the Friends?
Go put a smile on somebody’s face, go tell somebody they’ve got a place in this world, go tell somebody you wanna be friends with them.
