Sam on Stairs
Sam Whitehouse is…

a singer and multi-instrumentalist from the Boston area, who performed throughout New York before finding her current musical home in the San Francisco Bay Area.  She has traveled extensively throughout the USA, Canada, and Central America.

Her sound is as sultry as it is heartfelt, and with her warm, endearing presence, she invites the listener to join her in the music, creating an atmosphere that feels like a personal, intimate conversation with an old friend.

Her style is influenced by contemporary singers such as Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Lianne La Havas, Melody Gardot, Leela James, and Norah Jones, as well as legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Bonnie Raitt.

Sam is also fluent in jazz, blues, pop, rock, funk, R&B, and neo-soul.  She also covers covers a number of song by contemporary Turkish singers, including Sezen Aksu, Sertab Erener, Yalın, and Halil Sezai.

Throughout the last 10 years, Sam has also built up two successful and vibrant voice coaching companies.  She continues to work with dozens of students of all backgrounds and musical styles.  Her students have come from all over the world including China, India, Korea, Croatia, Turkey, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Italy, Poland, Brazil, Netherlands, France, Lebanon, and Switzerland.  For more about Sam’s teaching, visit:
