“My aim is to establish myself as a pioneer of new direction within the music scene. Through my writing, consulting, and performing, my ultimate goal is to inspire others to do whatever it is they love most, with the ambition of positively effecting our society. It is my hope that with every path crossed, inspiration transpires.”

stThese days, Sam Trump is busy getting this music to the masses. His resume is good, He has opened up for Al Jarreau, Ryan Leslie, Muhsinah, Jose James and Kindred The Family Soul.
