Come Hear EP
Born in the small, conservative town of Waterloo, Iowa and later raised in both the Philippines and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Sam Eldebs found himself surrounded by music at an early age. Influenced by everything from Michael J. Fox in 'Back to the Future' and the sounds of his parents' old records to the jam sessions of childhood friends, Sam picked up a pair of drum sticks for the first time on his tenth birthday when his parents surprised him with a brand new set of drums. His desire for songwriting truly became fulfilled when Sam picked up a guitar at the age of fourteen. First taught by a childhood friend Sam continued to teach himself the mechanics of playing guitar. Fueled by his early success in talent shows, small gigs and battles of the bands. Sam chose his own path by pursuing music out on the east coast while most of his friends chose to stay in the midwest, moving into college dormitories. Overcoming such obstacles as depression, homelessness, and heartbreak upon his arrival to New Jersey, Sam never lost sight of his dream to become a musician. After playing numerous venues in the tri-state area and recording independent demos, it wasn't until his collaboration with producer/songwriter Alex Houton of Wu-Shu Entertainment, whose credits include Crush Management's (Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco, Gym Class Heroes) artist, 'Charlotte Sometimes'... Music Row's 2007 Breakout Artist of the Year & New Music Weekly Best New Country Artist '06 nominee, 'Bailey', that Sam's dreams started to become of reach. 'The Come Hear E.P.'
