This is what’s up…

Yes, I am still in the recording process… and yes, it is taking FOREVER. But I promise it will be worth the wait. I am so excited about the release of this record. A question I have received a few times is “Are you going to have a full band play shows with you?” And the answer is YES. Not exactly who will all be in the band yet, but I can tell you my great friend Sheyn Love will be playing with me. Sheyn played drums on my whole record and he is a GREAT musician, so I couldn’t be more excited that he is willing to play in my band. More on the band to come…

Now, I am not quite ready to spill the beans on a release date or the record title yet, but I can tell you that I am aiming to release the record sometime between April and June. So let’s hope for that. I am still trying to raise money to put out the record (http://samsorensen.bandcamp.com). I will be setting the date soon though, then everyone will know ALL the details!

New single!

Ladies and gentlemen… Check out my new song “Living By A Compromise” up now on http://www.facebook.com/samsorensenmusic and http://samsorensen.bandcamp.com/


Some good things take time…

As you know, I am in the midst of recording. Raising money to make a proper release of the record hasn’t really been working out, but I intend to get this record out somehow. Thanks to those who have bought the “Building A Life” EP to help raise money!

I really think this record will surpass anything I have released before and I am very excited to give you all a taste… It won’t be long now. Not that titles will mean much to anyone now, but here are the track titles for the record (in no particular order):

"The Writer", "Wherever You Are", "Shelter", "Like A Ghost", "Standing Room Only", "Living By A Compromise", "Stay", "The River", "Don’t Settle", "Fish".

I don’t have a record title quite yet, but soon I will have that, along with album art, and the release of the first single from the record. So stay tuned. Thank you.

Welcome!

Hello! Welcome to my new blog! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Sam Sorensen and for the past 10 years I have been in bands such as The Moshmellows, Larusso, Ask For The Future, and now I am starting all over again. Over the past 10 years I have had the amazing opportunity of playing music to thousands of friends and fans all over the Western U.S. and selling a few thousand records along the way. But the last few years haven’t been the easiest when it comes to playing music and unfortunately many of these friends and fans have come and gone. The rough departure I had with my band Larusso brought a huge change and most recently, the ending of my band Ask For The Future brought another change.

So here it goes, a completely clean slate and starting from square one. This is my first attempt at going completely solo with my music. This is not an easy thing. For years I have had support from band mates, band funds, or band bank accounts to help get projects under way. Obviously, this is no longer the case and I have my work cut out for me. But from the way I look at it, I don’t have to do this alone. There are a few of you great friends and fans left to help me rebuild.

To help you all understand a little bit, here is my goal:

Record the best album I have ever made. Over the last year I have been writing and doing pre-production on what I feel are my best songs ever and I am about to begin the recording process for my new record. Fortunately, the actual recording won’t be the most expensive part for me like it is for most artists. That aside, it is still expensive to make a record. It takes money to make physical copies of the CD (which gets pricey) and it also takes money to put and keep the album up on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital retailers. 

This is just the beginning of what I hope to accomplish with my new music. I am going into this venture with plans of being my own manager, my own record label and business. Obviously that won’t be easy or cheap to get started. I am not writing this out of desperation or to beg you to donate your hard-earned money by any means, which is why I have put it together this way. If you are to donate money to my cause, you would get something in return. I have put together the “Building A Life” EP to help raise money. It is a five song record I put together and it features a B-side from my new record, a new and unreleased demo from the new record, and three old demos from my old bands. I put together this digital EP to sell for only $3. You can either pay the minimum of $3 or donate as much you think the music is worth. Anything you can give helps. Here is the link to buy my music:

And if that EP is not enough, I will take requests. You can request a special, re-recorded acoustic version of any songs from my previous bands. I will post it on this website for only $1. So request away!

Thank you so much for reading this and I am very excited for this new beginning. Keep in touch!
