guitar, vocal, songwriter
Born and raised in the Midwest, schooled in the East, Sam came to Los Angeles in the late ‘70s to pursue a career as a writer. That worked out well, as he spent 25 years as an author (books include a history of Fleetwood Mac and text for a collection of photos by Kenny Rogers), journalist (he spent five years as a music trade magazine editor), speechwriter (he put words in the mouths of Walter Cronkite, Jane Pauley, U.N. Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and many others), and screenwriter (he received an Emmy nomination for his work on the animated series “Bobby’s World” and co-wrote “Night of the Twisters,” a movie of the week that remains the highest-rated broadcast in the history of the Family Channel).
Sam has also taught yoga in and around L.A. since 1989, and was on the faculty of the UCLA Extension School's Education Department for seven years. But playing music was the thing he always loved best, and after forming the Sam Graham Trio, he apparently has finally figured out what he wants to do when he grows up.
