Young singer/songwriter Sami, who has recently moved to Newcastle, has just announced the title of her new album. The album is called Crazy Love and is sure to follow in the footsteps of her debut album Every Passing Minute.
To celebrate the release of her new album, Sami is hosting a launch party on the 7th April at The Small Ballroom is Newcastle from 7pm. “I am so excited about the new album,” Sami says. Along with Sami, the launch will also feature music from Georgina Grimshaw, with more artists to be named over the coming weeks. Sami will perform with her 6 piece backing band, giving fans a taste of her new album. Sami estimates that 150 fans will be at the album launch.
Crazy Love will feature songs about love (of course), life and summer. As Sami told me in our previous interview, each track was co-written by her so this album is sure to be very personal. Sami also got to work with some top song writers including Steve Deal, Dane Baldwin and Troy Kemp.
As Sami prepares for her massive album launch, she will continue to perform gigs regularly around the Newcastle and Hunter Valley areas. This weekend is her 22nd birthday so she is celebrating in style. On Friday the 9th February, join Sami for her birthday bash at the Commercial Hotel in Boolaroo from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Entry is free but Sami only asks that you wear something silly and enjoy yourselves. Then on Saturday 10th February, she will be performing at the Neath Hotel from 8pm-11:30pm. Again entry to this event is free. To top of her birthday weekend, Sami will be performing at the Lakeside Tavern in Forster between 2:30pm and 5:30pm. You guessed it, entry is free.
Since our last interview, Sami has acquired a job working for the Hit Squad on Newcastle’s Hit 106.9, another thing that she is very excited about.
So while Sami keeps busy with her music and writing career, be sure to check out her gigs when you can. You don’t want to miss her album launch. It’s going to be huge. Tickets for this event are $10 each. To buy tickets, head to the store on Sami’s website: http://www.samicooke.com.au
