On Saturday, March 11, the Community Center for the Performing Arts welcomes Sam Lachow back to the WOW Hall.
Sam Lachow is a producer, songwriter, rapper, videographer, director and editor of video and music. Raised in both Seattle and New York City, he's been making videos since elementary school, and as a seventh-grader began a group called Shankbone. Sam began directing and producing music videos with Shankbone, and went on to create videos for various other artists.
In 2011 Sam released his debut project as a solo artist, Brand New Bike. Produced entirely by Sam, the album utilized many live instruments from musicians based in Seattle and New York. The next year Sam released two EP's, and produced/directed dozens of music videos from the projects on his YouTube channel, which now has over seven million views.
After successfully raising 20K on Kickstarter in 2014, Sam’s second full-length album Huckleberry independently debuted #6 on iTunes Hip Hop. He then unexpectedly released a free project titled 80 Bars, which surpassed a million plays on Soundcloud for multiple songs.
Riding that momentum Sam became the first local headliner to sell out Seattle’s 1,000 cap Neptune Theater, co-headlined a 29 city national tour, and rocked the main stage at Washington's biggest music festival Sasquatch.
Sam’s latest EP Friends, Funk & Liquor debuted at #2 on iTunes Hip Hop top albums.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
