Sam Weber - New Agile Freedom EP
Sam Weber is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers, and Gillian Welch. Years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC, attending Berklee College Of Music, and working in studios in Los Angeles have honed Weber’s craft to a fine point. With two LPs already released, Shadows in the Road (2014) and Valentina Nevada (2016), Weber is now releasing, New Agile Freedom, a seven-song EP that features guest appearances from Terra Lightfoot and Molly Jenson (Sam Outlaw). While touring Valentina Nevada, Sam and longtime drummer and collaborator Marshall Wildman caught the ear of LA producer and musician Tyler Chester (Blake Mills, Margaret Glaspy, Jackson Browne). Through Tyler’s friendship and guidance, Sam and Marshall began spending more time in the Los Angeles music scene exposing them to a community of world- class players and writers. During their extended visits and the 20-hour red-eye drives to and from Los Angeles, Sam began writing New Agile Freedom, a self-produced collection of tracks recorded on and off the road between California and home in BC.
“I think the song of the year is “Ex-Lover” by Sam Weber. The guy’s a hell of a songwriter, great musician, great guitarist… he’s going to do big things” - Afie Jurvanen, Bahamas
“[Weber] is an expert tunesmith, brimming with addictive, adventurous and confident pieces. Infused with deep wit and wisdom, Weber’s output is truly impressive. His guitar work is also killer, full of nuance, soul and a truly unique voice. This is an artist built for the long-term. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Weber in the coming years, and more than likely, decades.” - Guitar Player
“One of Canada’s most powerful young songwriters, with hefty guitar chops to boot” - FYIMusicNews
“Channels the raw simplicity of early John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, while maintaining the gentle emotive grip of acts like Bon Iver” – ArtsVictoria
