Sam Nitsch is a composer and performer, specializing in the fusion of diverse musical styles and techniques. After beginning his career as a classical violinist, Sam developed a distinct voice through exploration and inclusion of multiple musical instruments, technology, and contemporary methodologies into his music.
Sam emerged from the Rochester music scene in 2015 and is now based in Boston at Berklee College of Music. Since relocating, he's performed over 100 shows in over 50 venues. In the Spring of 2016, he released his debut album, Passage, which was followed up in 2017 by Sam's EP Torn.
Sam has received a lot of praise for his music, including an invitation to perform at the 2017 Rochester Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. He played the event alongside musical veterans, such as Paul Schaffer, Gary Lewis, and many others.
These days, you can find Sam performing in venues across Massachusetts and New York. His shows are inclusive of all kinds of musical instruments and gear, which allow him to have a much fuller sound than one would expect.
