Sam Johnson is the #1 ranked Singer-Songwriter in all of San Francisco. Sam recently joined Andy Grammer for the West Coast portion of his “Honey I’m Good Tour” performing live in front of thousands each night as Andy’s only opening act.
Sam’s original music is often heard in TV shows on FOX, BRAVO, MTV, SPIKE and more. In 2015 he was commissioned by the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) to write several songs which are still being used by the mixed martial arts promotion company to this day. His rendition of “In The Midnight Hour” was chosen two years in a row for the MACY’S Black Friday sales campaign.
Interscope Records recording artists Flip Syde did a rendition of Sam’s song “Tower Of Hollywood,” and it became the title track of their most recent album Tower Of Hollywood.
Sam maintains a busy performance schedule at over 200 shows per year, playing dozens of college events, corporate events (Oakley Sunglasses, Oracle, Red Bull, Casamigos Tequila, and more), as well as festivals, tour dates, and residencies with The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, The Palace Hotel, The Grand Hyatt San Francisco, and Cavallo Point.
He inked his first distribution deal, with Ineffable Music Group (same distribution and management company as popular Reggae band Stick Figure), which catapulted him into sharing stages with Andy Grammer, Shwayze, Collie Buddz, Anuhea, The Holdup, and many more.
In addition to performing solo, Sam can play with his acoustic pop trio.
